The 33 1/3 Club

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!

French Film Documentary - Theo's Choice

The Townsend Library French Group invites everyone to come to a film screening of "Theo's Choice" 

The film is 54 minutes long. Snacks will be provided and discussion will follow. Not Rated.

 

Image result for theos choice

Enter the universe of Theo Brode who, like so many in Louisiana, chose to learn, speak, and preserve the language of their Cajun, Creoles and other French ancestors. Theo’s Choice is a documentary about French language in Southwest Louisiana and the struggle to preserve an endangered heritage in the United States. Once the official language in Louisiana, French almost disappeared in the mid-20th century due to Americanization and its all-powerful English.

The decline of French was symbolized by children being physically punished at schools for speaking French. If education almost killed French in Louisiana, it has, more recently, been at the origins of a revival. If Cajuns and Creoles used to be ashamed of their heritage, speaking French is now a source of pride.

Enter the universe of Theo Brode who, like so many in Louisiana, chose to learn, speak, and preserve the language of their Cajun, Creoles and other French ancestors. Theo’s Choice is a documentary about French language in Southwest Louisiana and the struggle to preserve an endangered heritage in the United States. Once the official language in Louisiana, French almost disappeared in the mid-20th century due to Americanization and its all-powerful English.

The decline of French was symbolized by children being physically punished at schools for speaking French. If education almost killed French in Louisiana, it has, more recently, been at the origins of a revival. If Cajuns and Creoles used to be ashamed of their heritage, speaking French is now a source of pride.

Grief Support Group
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Benefits of a Grief Support Group (excerpted from HelloGrief.com):

After the loss of a loved one, we experience a wide variety of feelings and emotions. The ever-changing emotions we experience with grief can catch us off guard, causing us to  act out of character, or differently than our typical personality and demeanor.

We all need a support system to help us as we move through our grief journey. While family and friends are vital, unless they have experienced a close personal loss, they most likely don’t fully “get it.” That is where support groups can become a valuable resource. In a support group, you will find 10 or so new comrades also living life after loss.

Grief support groups offer companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss, and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.

In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, support groups give you the opportunity to share your story openly and guilt-free. You also have the opportunity to hear the stories of others and talk about coping day-to-day, as well as on the most difficult days of our grief journeys.

If you are looking for a support system in your grief journey, you should consider support groups. You will likely find the following things there:
     •Emotional and physical support in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
     •Support and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss.
     •The opportunity to begin the healing process through sharing your own story and hearing the stories of others.
     •Coping skills to help you through the most difficult days of your grief journey.
     •Hope through companionship with people who “get it” and understand first-hand what you’re going through.
     •The opportunity to discover new traditions and ideas to keep loved ones present in your hearts and in your memories.
     •Increased understanding of how children and other family members react to loss.
     •Permission to grieve and permission to live a happy productive life.

So when Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it's these four who are taking over Vegas!

The 33 1/3 Club
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

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: Zachary Taylor
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Zachary Taylor by John S. D Eisenhower

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.
