Take A Walk!

Take A Walk!

Meet Tuesday mornings at 9 AM in the library parking lot. We’ll begin with 5 minutes of Tai Chi and then go for a walk.

We are beginning to plan adult daytime programs to fill the community space in the new library. This is just the beginning. All walkers are welcome. All ideas are welcome.

Songs & Stories of the Strange & Macabre

Songs & Stories of the Strange & Macabre

Friday, October 27 @ 7:00

The NiverMoores are a cure for your cheerfulness and company for your misery. They sing delightfully depressing songs of melancholy, hard living, and death.

Singer/songwriter Abby Lappen will present a selection of original and traditional folk songs to haunt, mesmerize and invoke the season’s spirits taking flight.

A variety of Story Tellers will be regaling us with delightful tales of spine chilling suspense and shivery delight.
Hot apple cider and light refreshments will be served.
This is not an evening for young children.
This is a free event.
