Geocache Description:


I decided to hide a cache here because I have wanted to for a long time.

I grew up in Chicopee and know of some of the history about the building in which you will see from the cache’s location. It was the former Gold Club building will go from barroom to classrooms after being purchased by the corporate parent of Branford Hall Career Institute.

The long-vacant strip club was acquired for $1.3 million by the Premier Education Group to allow Branford Hall to expand its Springfield campus.

The site, located on Shawnigan Drive along Massachusetts Turnpike, was owned by Chicopee Entertainment LLC, which operated a juice bar there for six months before being shut down for licensing violations in October of 2004.

The abrupt closing followed a long battle by club owners to operate a strip bar just a few hundred yards from the Turnpike.
The school expects to employ 50 to 60 people and teach 200 students at the site, which is located about 1.2 miles from turnpike Exit 6.

So this will be a nano for those east bound travelers on the Massachusetts Turnpike, traveling EAST from Exit 6 to Exit 7. This is not a rest stop it is a pull off from the highway.

And if you are a traveler, you will like this item that I have, myself, recently purchased for my vehicle:

Vehicle Decal Travel Bug

A die cut vinyl decal for your vehicle or anything else you can stick it to!

This decal is approximately 6 1/2" x 2 1/4" and also includes a copy tag that you can write down the code on and keep for your records.

So be on the lookout for my car tb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
