Grades 1-4 Summer Night Sounds
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

For kids entering Grades 1-4

What makes those amazing songs we hear outside our window during the warm summer nights? Is that a cricket or a katydid or a treefrog?  Through photos and audio clips, we will learn about each of the specific creatures that make up our beautiful night symphony, and will learn to identify each of them.  We will learn about each of the uniqueness, and about which part of their bodies make the sounds, and the reasons behind their songs.  Come join us as we learn to decipher which fascinating creatures make each sound. This program will greatly increase the listener's experience of the summer night.

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Apollo 11 at 50, Remembering the First Moon Landing
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

On July 20, 1969 the whole world held its breath and stood still as NASA Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and erupted in a worldwide celebration as they touched down onto the Sea of Tranquility. Now, 50 years later, the US is still benefiting from the Apollo missions and by 2024, NASA will be going back to the moon and using a new gateway there to fly humans to Mars. Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing and learn of future NASA moon missions.

Since retiring several years ago, Pat Monteith rekindled her interest in the space program and was selected as a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, a role in which she has conducted several dozen programs for children and adults about various space science topics including the Moon.

This presentation will highlight the Earth’s moon as well as provide a 50th anniversary review of the Apollo lunar landing. Find out how NASA plans to return to the moon and build habitats to survive there, and then use it as a launch site for Mars.

Best for ages 9 through adults. There will be hands on activities as well as the presentation. Please register as spots are limited.

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."
