As part of your overall EAS experience, please attend the Thursday Evening Social and Auction to benefit the EAS organization. This event will be held on Thursday evening, August 8, from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM at the Red Clay Room (www.redclayroom.com/home.htm), 423 Dalmatian St., Kennett Square, PA, 19348. Please purchase a ticket, if you have not already done so, through preregistration; if you still need to buy a ticket after preregistration closes, contact the folks at the registration desk. Please bring your ticket to the dinner.
On the menu for Thursday evening will be an entrée choice between Honey Dijon Salmon and Honey Balsamic Chicken. As Kennett Square is considered the Mushroom Capital of the World, we will be sure to have some excellent mushroom soup and mushrooms accompanying other parts of our meal.
Part of the decision to locate this banquet in Kennett Square was to encourage people to go out for a brief drive in the beautiful Chester County countryside. I can recommend that you set your GPS for the address given above so that you will ultimately be taken directly to the banquet location, but try to override your GPS at the beginning and start out your trip in one of two ways:
1. Leaving West Chester borough via Rt 52 South will take you through some interesting countryside and actually past the picnic park where the Wednesday evening picnic had just occurred the night before; or, better yet,
2. Travel south from West Chester on Rt 202 and then after about 2 miles, turn west on Rt 926--this is my favorite route for scenic countryside.
If you are up for it and have planned for some extra time while traveling the 926 route described above, turn at the intersection onto Rt 100 South. You will travel a winding road next to the Brandywine River and after 2 or 3 miles, keen observers can look to the right and see the late Andrew Wyeth’s homestead—it looks exactly like one of his paintings and is located near some power lines as a further reference point. Continuing south on Rt 100 will lead you to the intersection with Rt 1 South. Make a right at that intersection and you will be heading on your way toward the Red Clay Room.
