Epic friggin bike ride!

Tomorrow at 4:30, we all gather at FTS Gallery and embark on a journey through the fair town of Stratcity to Bar 140 in Shelton.  The mode of transport: bicycle.  The purpose: fun in the sun.  We will be stopping along the way in order to pick up non-perishables to donate to a food bank near Bar 140- this way we give the event a purpose besides pseudo-excersice and drinking.  Also, be sure to arrange rides from the bar if you do not think you will be able to ride home- we here at FTS do not encourage drunk cycling.  Thanks- see you all at the gallery by 4:30 sharp!

Epic FTS to Bar 140 bike ride!

FTS will be at Short Beach this Saturday!

This Saturday FTS will be helping out the folks at "Children's Parties 4 Charity" at their children's pirate party fundraiser from 11am-3pm.  The afternoon will be filled with treasure hunting, a live pirate show, games, an aquarium touch tank and much more.  Admission is 5 dollars per person with children under 2 getting in for free.  We will be dishing out the sickest temporary tattoos for a small donation in efforts to raise money for "Connecticut Voices For Children," a research-based public education and advocacy organization that works statewide to promote the well-being of CT's children, youth and families.  The event is rain or shine-- hope to see you there!  Check out the links for more information on the event!
