Travel group visits local businesses
MIDDLEBURY — The Traveling Sightseeing Associates (TSA) is a local travel group that has been taking one trip a month since September 2017. Since January 2018, the TSA has visited and toured several businesses including Danforth Pewters Workshop and Store, Beau Ties Ltd., Otter Creek Brewery (that included a tasty lunch), Vermont Soap and Maple Landmark.
Tasty food was also enjoyed the day the group took the ACTR bus to Dakin Farms in Ferrisburgh for Maple Open House Weekend. In April, the TSA went to the Middlebury Studio School and experienced an introductory pottery class and then some family members came along for a lunch at the Magic Wok restaurant. The TSA visited the Henry Sheldon Museum in January and the Middlebury College Museum of Art in May.
On the docket for future travels this year are the Vermont State Historic sites of Chimney Point and Mount Independence. The Champlain Maritime Museum and the Shelburne Museum will be explored, as will the towns of Brandon and Bristol. Whenever possible, the group takes ACTR bus to visit their chosen destinations.
