Owls are probably more misunderstood than any other kind of bird.
This program shows how owls use their specialized powers of sight, hearing, and flight to survive and thrive.
A wealth of fact and folklore about these masters of the dark explains the natural and unnatural of owls.
A variety of live owls provides the focus of the presentation.
Recommended for ages 6 and over. No registration required. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

“Music Through The Decades” is a fun-filled hour in which David Polansky tells how the last hundred-plus years of American and world history have inspired so many of the songs we love. Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals, David presents the music of George M. Cohan, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, and a host of others — music inspired by the advent of the automobile, the two world wars, the Roaring 20’s, the Great Depression, the Wild West, and much more. David takes questions, performs requests, and tells some very funny anecdotes about famous musicians, as well as some about his own life as a musician. Free and no registration.

Genealogy Group Presentation: "Reconstructing History: Mom's WWII Letters"
Event Location: Fels Community Room
Contact: Karen Wall   508-949-8021
kwall@cwmars.org
Corinne Smith's discovery of more than 100 letters brought unexpected insights and connections. In May 2017, she found her mother's stash of letters from 16 servicemen that she had corresponded with in 1944-1945. Most of the men were from her mother's hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, or from her college roommate's hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. Nearly all of the writers were now gone and could no longer offer information or explanations for what they had written. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. Learn about her on-going project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their experiences, and what their relatives have to say today. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt audience members to wonder for themselves what treasures may be lurking in their own old family boxes -- and how they can share the information with others. Program is free but registration is encouraged: 508-949-8021. Sponsored by Friends of the Library.
