What the heck is pie breakfast?
One of the very best New England traditions. The perfect antidote to a very long winter. Did I write a long winter? A very, very long winter, a practically punitive winter.
Pie Breakfast is all-you-can-eat sweet and savory pie, served in the beautiful Woodbury Elementary School — a building on the National Historic Registry. Live music from the Woodbury Broad Band. A stellar Silent Auction with well over 100 items from classy handmade crafts to incredibly useful gift cards, to just plain fun stuff. An eclectic book sale in the library.
$4-7; all proceeds benefit the Woodbury Community Library.
Pie Breakfast is a winter’s worth of socializing in a few hours — and, at the end, it’s spring!
Historical ecological Charlie Cogbill’s presentation is now available via Hardwick Community Access TV. The library had a full house. Many thanks again for Charlie’s gift of time and expertise — and to HCTV, once again!
You can access this here.
Looking to get out in the snow? Check out some signs of winter wildlife?
Next Saturday, February 16, 9 a.m., the Woodbury Conservation Commission hosts a snowshoe walk through the town forest on a 3/4 of a mile trek. Meet at the Woodbury Elementary School. Some children-sized snowshoes available–first come, first served.
Knitters! Handworkers! Library patron Michelle Duford intends to start a handwork group at the Woodbury Community Library.
First date: this Saturday, February 9, 10am. As always, coffee and tea will be served.
Beat the winter blahs. Stop in. February will still be waiting for you.
The HCTV folks show up in Woodbury for many things — school board meetings, select board meetings, town meetings — but they also frequently appear for library events, too. Always reliable, they record Woodbury happenings — both for info now, and for future reference.
Here’s a link to John Patoine’s quarry presentation he gave on Tuesday, January 22.
One of the most influential Americans of the 20th century — and far beyond — the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote, “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
Find some of Dr. King’s speeches here.
If you have old photographs of Woodbury or the Hardwick quarries — or even just old photographs — please bring them to the quarry talk this coming Tuesday, January 22, at 6:30pm.
Others will likely be interested — and a little local history can be shared.
Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 6:30pm, John Patoine, former supervisor of the Fletcher Quarry for 28 years, shares stories, including the methods used to extract granite and advancements made over time.
This program is generously sponsored by the Woodbury Conservation Commission and the Woodbury Fund.
Come with questions and enjoy local history, socializing, and refreshments.
Free and open to the public.
Thanks to the Adopt-an-Author program, the library now owns a copy of Louise Penny’s new release, Kingdom of the Blind.
The library will be closed Christmas Eve, December 26, and New Year’s Eve. Have a lovely holiday!
