It’s an annual rite of passage. As the snow melts away and the first traces of greenery return to the woods of New England, our breeding birds begin the courtship process. And no bird is more of an exhibitionist then the American woodcock, also known as a Timberdoodle.

In the gentle dusk of early spring, American woodcocks perform a spectacular aerial mating display. We will gather indoors to learn a bit about this peculiar member of the sandpiper family, then drive to the trailhead and walk a short distance to witness 'peeting', spiral flights, and flybys of courting males. This will be an easy walk along level trails at dusk.

Cost: $20.00.  Please call the Senior Center to sign up.

Andrew Johnson by Annette Gordon-Reed

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

From Tree to Chair:

Crafting Antique-Style 18th Century Windsor Chairs

Join woodworker Patrick Perkins as he shares his knowledge and experience designing and building Windsor chairs.

During his presentation Patrick will describe the types of wood used in chair construction, and how wood is taken directly from logs and fashioned into finished chair parts.

Patrick will also share examples of antique-style tools he uses, and how milk paint and oil are combined to produce a durable and beautiful finish.

 

About Patrick:

After graduating from Fitchburg State University, Patrick Perkins embarked on a career in education that has lasted close to four decades. As an industrial arts teacher, Patrick taught many aspects of woodworking and technical drawing to middle school students. After numerous years in the classroom, Patrick became a school administrator, a position he held until his retirement in 2015. Following an inspirational trip to Colonial Williamsburg, Patrick built his first Windsor chair in the early 1980s. He has since built many Windsor chairs in several different styles using the same techniques and tools used in the construction of Windsor chairs throughout the 18th century.
