THE 9th ANNUAL PUMPKIN PATCH TRAIN RIDES
WITH KIDS’ “HAY MAZE” AND CIDER AND DONUTS
AT THE THOMASTON TRAIN STATION
The Naugatuck Railroad’s Fall Foliage and Family Fun Trips
THOMASTON, CT. September 23, 2016 – Enjoy the best of Connecticut’s fall foliage and take a train ride to the Pumpkin Patch where the kids can select their own pumpkin, navigate through a hay maze and everyone can savor cider and donuts.
According to Howard Pincus, Chairman of the Railroad Museum Of New England (RMNE), “It’s a great opportunity for families to reconnect and take a fun trip back into years gone by. Parents and grandparents can bring their children and grandchildren along for a ride on “Pumpkin Patch Train” and watch them pick out their own pumpkin in our field. The “Hay Maze” will challenge the little ones. All will enjoy the magnificent foliage this time of year. Everyone should bring cameras to capture these wonderful memories.”
Pumpkin Patch Trains are scheduled for Saturdays, Sundays and Columbus Day (October 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 18, 22, and 23) at 10am, 12 noon and 2pm. Passengers then re-board the train for the ride back to our 1881 Thomaston Station.
The fares are $18 for Adults and $16 for Seniors (age 62+) and Children (ages 3-12). Children 2 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.dynamicticketsolutions.com/rmne/ or phone 860-283-7245 anytime. All tickets are non-refundable/non-exchangeable.
Trains depart from Thomaston Station at 242 East Main St, Thomaston, Connecticut. Tickets are picked up at Thomaston Station's “WILL CALL” window on the day of your train ride. Please arrive at the Station 30 minutes before departure time. Trains leave promptly at the scheduled times.
In addition to the "Pumpkin Patch Trains," the RMNE schedule for September and October includes the “Scenic Train Tours” on Tuesdays and the last of this year’s “Chocolate Decadence Sunset Tour” for adults on Friday, October 21st.
In late November and throughout December the RMNE also will offer the "Santa Express" and the "Northern Lights Limited." The RMNE, located at the historic Thomaston Train Station, is a not-for-profit, all volunteer, educational and historical organization that dates back to January 1968. The mission of the RMNE is to tell the story of the region’s rich railroad heritage through our educational exhibits and operation of the Naugatuck Railroad. The museum concept is more than just artifacts; it's also a story of the region and the development of society around the railroad.More information about the Railroad Museum of New England can be found at: www.rmne.org.

What is the NAMI Basics Education Program?
NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role families play in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also the parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 13.
NAMI Connecticut in partnership with Prime Time House will offer its NAMI Basics Education Program for the Fall 2016 beginning September 26th 2016. It will be held on Mondays from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at Prime Time House, Torrington.
“This is such a great step by step program that walks parents every step of the way. It is as if you are holding their hand through it all.”
“The course is inclusive of almost all aspects of family and child resources. I could have spent a lifetime getting all this information on my own. I feel supported, strong and ready to go forward.”
“NAMI Basics bridges the gap. It provides help that can’t be found in a doctor’s office.”

Success in our work environment depends both on our ability to accomplish tasks and to manage relationships with our peers, direct reports and supervisors. Stress is inherent in relationship management because of multiple and often conflicting perspectives. However, we have far more control of our reactions than we realize. Emotions and the development of emotional competencies is the primary predictor in improving our situation. In this workshop you will 1) complete an EQ self-assessment 2) learn how to benefit from your emotions “both positive and negative” 3) examine a challenge area and re-frame your response 4) learn to recognize and reroute emotional hijacking 5) learn to better recognize and respond to others emotions 6) identify a personal action plan to increase your EQ and 6) pay it forward to apply your EQ support others. This workshop will combine the most current research on emotional intelligence with experiential and interactive activities. Required text: None Prerequisite: None CEUs: 0.6
