    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

    Location: Pottstown Regional Public Library

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

Mark Daugherty, Piano
Kirsten Orechiwsky, Vocals

featuring:

  • As Time Goes By
  • Strangers in the Night
  • That’s Life
  • All the Things You Are
  • songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Schwartz, Stephen Sondheim, and more

Wine and cheese to follow 
This program was made possible by the estate of long-time Library employee, Fran Rubinsohn.

Back in the 1960’s Mark Daugherty singlehandedly saved the world from experiencing yet another artistic disaster when he decided to go into music rather than theater. But he has kept alive his love of all things theatrical by providing musical direction for community groups, theater training schools for children, and annual Gilbert & Sullivan productions in New Hampshire. Earlier in his life, he worked at the Mount Gretna Playhouse as both a pianist and an actor/singer. Since graduating from the Eastman School of Music with a degree in piano performance, Mark became a lawyer, figuring that he would make the criminals “sing” because as we all know, the law is just another song and dance act. He yet again saved the world from arguing for all the lost causes and went back to do musical things. Now he works as the Director of Music at the Unitarian Society of Germantown as well as across the street at Old York Road Temple Beth Am. He also conducts the Ambler Choral Society as well as the Foulkeways Singers, and accompanies for the Orpheus Club of Philadelphia.

Kirsten Orechiwsky has been singing professionally for over 15 years. After graduating from Penn State University with a B.F.A in music theater in 2000, she moved to the Big Apple where she worked as a singer/actress for 10 years. Theater credits include: G&S Players productions: The Sorcerer/Trial by Jury, Pirates of Penzance, Patience, The National Tour of Smokey Joe’s Cafe with Gladys Knight, “Cinderella” in the national tour of Cinderella, “Belle” in Beauty and the Beast, and “Maria” in the Asian/European tour of West Side Story among other shows. She has also performed as a vocalist for concerts and staged readings of new musicals. Kirsten is a first grade teacher in Bucks County. Additionally, she has spent many years teaching children music and theater, a passion of hers. Kirsten lives in Blue Bell with her husband and three children, Ava, Jake and Isabella.

Registration for Science in the Summer begins! Children entering grades 2 through 6 can sign up for this free, fun science enrichment program provided by The Franklin Institute.

Behind every professional basketball player, gymnast, swimmer, and sprinter is a team of scientists who help athletes excel in their sport, from trainers, nutritionists and physical therapists to statisticians and equipment engineers. Students will learn about these scientists and tackle basic scientific concepts through fun, hands-on activities like experimenting with healthy sports drink recipes and creating their own bouncy balls to test bounce height against other sports balls. Two-day session dates are July 5 and 6, or July 31 and August 1. Sign up is online and requires an email address. Please visit http://www.scienceinthesummer.com/ to sign up or for more information.

“Born at the stroke of midnight, at the precise moment of India's independence, Saleem Sinai is destined from birth to be special. For he is one of 1,001 children born in the midnight hour, children who all have special gifts, children with whom Saleem is telepathically linked.

But there has been a terrible mix up at birth, and Saleem’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns”.

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

Registration for Science in the Summer begins! Children entering grades 2 through 6 can sign up for this free, fun science enrichment program provided by The Franklin Institute.

Behind every professional basketball player, gymnast, swimmer, and sprinter is a team of scientists who help athletes excel in their sport, from trainers, nutritionists and physical therapists to statisticians and equipment engineers. Students will learn about these scientists and tackle basic scientific concepts through fun, hands-on activities like experimenting with healthy sports drink recipes and creating their own bouncy balls to test bounce height against other sports balls. Two-day session dates are July 5 and 6, or July 31 and August 1. Sign up is online and requires an email address. Please visit http://www.scienceinthesummer.com/ to sign up or for more information.

Registration for Science in the Summer begins! Children entering grades 2 through 6 can sign up for this free, fun science enrichment program provided by The Franklin Institute. This year we explore the Science of Sports. Behind every professional basketball player, gymnast, swimmer, and sprinter is a team of scientists who help athletes excel in their sport, from trainers, nutritionists and physical therapists to statisticians and equipment engineers. Students will learn about these scientists and tackle basic scientific concepts through fun, hands-on activities like experimenting with healthy sports drink recipes and creating their own bouncy balls to test bounce height against other sports balls. Two-day session dates are July 5 and 6, or July 31 and August 1. Sign up is online and requires an email address. Please visit http://www.scienceinthesummer.com/ to sign up or for more information.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

Planting Bulbs in the Fall for Spring Blooms, A Lesson in Patience with Master Gardener Betsy Nutt
Monday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m.
Learn how to plant bulbs in the fall so your garden becomes alive with colorful flowers in the spring. Find out exactly what is a bulb. Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.
Registration starts Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Speaker, Betsy Nutt, is a Penn State Master Gardener volunteer. She lives on a small farm where she and her husband have raised sheep for 30 years. They grow and freeze all their vegetables for the year. Their gardens also include fruits, berries and perennial flowers.


All of the presenters are Master Gardener Volunteers from the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension.  Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by the Penn State Cooperative Extension.

Once they complete their training, Master Gardeners help the Extension better serve the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, working with 4-H horticultural projects, participating in civic beautification, maintaining demonstration gardens, teaching plant sciences and horticulture, maintaining this web site, and in many other ways.

Master Gardeners are willing and able to educate individuals and groups in gardening topics such as plant selection, composting, soil improvement, 
pest control, vegetable and flower gardening, pruning, and more.
