Hiking is a wonderful way to stay fit and enjoy the beauty of nature. All you need is proper equipment, shoes and clothes. This program will teach you how to stay warm and comfortable outdoors as well as hiking tips, what gear you will need, where to hike, and information on area hiking groups. Examples of equipment will be on display.
So you have a favorite poem? Come share that poem with us on Sunday, June 1. Local poet Jim Kenny will host the event, which is based on the "Favorite Poem Project" created by former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. We ask that you choose poems by Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Shakespeare, etc. Every reader is allotted five minutes to read and explain why that poem is their favorite.
