Hall of Presidents Book Club: The Last Founding Father: James Monroe by Harlow Giles Unger
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Last Founding Father: James Monroe and a Nation's Call to Greatness by Harlow Giles Unger

 
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.

The Buzz About Honey Bees

Curious about bees?

Thinking of becoming a beekeeper?

Wondering how you can help them?

Join us for an informative talk to learn all about bees and beekeeping. Learn about the honey bee lifecycle, bees as pollinators, honey production and products of the hive, what it takes to keep bees alive today, planting for bees and other ways you can help them. Plus try some raw local honey fresh from a hive!

One of My Foundationless Nucs Photo by Eric Roth

Anita Deeleyis a beekeeper and founder of Beverly Bees, a beekeeping company that rescues and relocates wild bee hives. An expert on honey bee disease and maladies, Anita has years of experience working to fix these issues for other beekeepers. She created an educational website for beekeepers called BeverlyBees.com. Anita maintains 30 hives, with her own stock of bees, she developed from her rescued feral colonies and select mite resistance genetics. Anita was recently featured in the September 2016 issue of American Beekeeping Journal and is on the Board of Directors for Massachusetts Beekeepers Association, a member of Essex County, Worcester County and Plymouth County Beekeepers Associations, Eastern Apicultural Society, American Beekeeping Federation and American Apitherapy Society. Anita and her husband, Brian capture honey bee swarms and remove live bee hives from houses and structures. These bee colonies are then safely relocated to one of
their apiaries with bees, hive and brood intact. They also provide a pesticide free wasp removal service. In addition, Beverly Bees sells raw local honey from their “wild” hives, beeswax candles, lotion and lip balms at farmer’s markets and stores across Massachusetts.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Movie Matinee:  Me Before You

Summary:  Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Hall of Presidents Book Club: John Quincy Adams by Harlow Giles Unger
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

John Quincy Adams by Harlow Giles Unger

 
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.
