North Haven, Connecticut, USA
1879 - North Haven Sabbath School Picnic


News
The North Haven Congregational church and Sunday school will have one of their old fashioned picnics on Thrusday of this week at High Rock grove, weather favoring. Arrangements have been made with the different railroads whereby cars will be run from the North Haven station direct to the grove without charg, returning in the same manner. The train will leave North Haven at 7:37 a.m., stopping at Quinnipac a few moments later. On arrival at New Haven the cars will be transferred to the Derby railroad, and leaving the Meadow street station at 8:15 a.m., be run by special train direct to the grove. The fare from North Haven and Quinnipiac for all over twelve years of age will be eighty cents for the round trip, and forty cents for those under twelve years. Any one wishing to join the excursion at New Haven can do so at fifty and twenty-five cents for round trip. A special baggage car will be furnished for the occasion. On returning, the train will arrive in New Haven about 6 p.m., going north at 6:15. Further accommodations are also made whereby parties driving from any distance can leave their teams at the sheds of the Congregational church where they will be cared for by parties in charge. Excursionists are expected to furnish their crockery and subsistence for the trip.

Although this party is under the management of the Congregational Sunday school it is by no means intended to exclude any one of whatever creed, nationality or color; on the contrary, every man, women and child in the town is wanted to help make up the day's enjoyment, and all are warmly invited. A further warning will be given by ringing of the Congregational church bell at half-past six in the morning if the excursion is to go, and if no bell then on picnic.
