Along with future stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood like Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, and Jack Benny, 37 Derry residents joined the Navy during the First World War. For the first time in American history, women would also be allowed to serve. Derry’s Annie Frasier Norton answered her nation’s call and would pay with her life. Our town’s sailors would be assigned to every type of Navy vessel, from fisheries enforcement cutters hastily pressed into service to dreadnought battleships like the U.S.S. Texas. Two Derry sailors would be torpedoed and cast into the open sea. In part two of a three-part series on Derry in the Great War, local historian T.J. Cullinane will tell the story of Derry’s sailors and their remarkable record of service. Learn the fate of the first Derry woman to give her life for her country and other sailors who would serve in both World Wars during this short but informative program.

   6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM Restoration of the American Chestnut Tree  
    Contact: Liz Ryan, Adult Services Librarian   432-6140   lizr@derrypl.org
   

Less than 100 years ago eastern U.S. forests were dominated by large American chestnut trees. By the 1950s this population was reduced to short-lived stump sprouts. These trees reined over 200 million acres of eastern woodlands from Maine to Florida, and from the Piedmont west to the Ohio Valley, until succumbing to a lethal fungus disease, chestnut blight. An estimated 4 billion American chestnuts, one quarter of the hardwood tree population, grew within this range prior to the blight.

The blight, imported to the US on Asian chestnut trees, is a fungus and its spores are easily dispersed via air, raindrops or animals. It is a wound pathogen, entering through injuries to the tree's bark. It spreads to the underlying vascular cambium and wood, killing these tissues as it advances. The flow of nutrients is eventually choked off to and from sections of the tree above the infection.

Join Wildlife Biologist, Curt Laffin, as he discusses the history and demise of this tree and promising efforts by the American Chestnut Foundation to restore it locally and throughout its historic range.
