 Fourth Friday Concert

Piperventilators

A Traditional Irish Session

In the great tradition of Irish Music, a session is a gathering of musicians
who come together weekly and spontaneously share tunes.
Each musician brings favorite tunes and
if you know the tune you jump in and play your heart out.

It’s spontaneous, it’s fun, and your toes will tap all night.

Nick Whitmer on Uilleann Pipes/Whistles; Susan Murphy on Uilleann Pipes/Whistles;
Jeff Werner on Fiddle; David Sibley on Guitar (and maybe others!)
These players will entertain you with reels, jigs, airs, and slip jigs.

It’s dance music that you’ll be tapping your feet to! 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE!

Seed Library

The seed library is open.

so that you can grow your own food,
so that children can learn first-hand about the wonder and excitement of sprouting plants,
and so that there are always different varieties of plants being grown.

You don’t need acres.
Plant in a pot, a window box, a front yard, or a tea mug.

Take; grow; enjoy; it’s as simple as that.
Anyone can come and take seeds.
You don’t even need a library card.

Limit of 15 packets per family.
