An Evening With Pete Sutherland
Friday, May 31 at 7 PM at the Waterbury Congregational Church
In honor of Waterbury's 250th birthday, The Library is very proud to sponsor an evening of music from native Vermonter and nationally-known folk musician, Pete Sutherland, at the Waterbury Congregational Church on Friday, May 31 at 7:00 PM.
Pete will be performing songs from his album "The Wilderness Road" - a collection of original songs steeped in the culture and history of the Green Mountain state and her people - ancient ballads, topical and parlor songs of centuries gone by and Pete's own original work showcasing his lifelong involvement with his native state's history. Pete is also a renowned dance fiddler and will spice the program with some of his favorite contradance tunes!
This program is suitable for all ages, FREE, and open to the public.
Teen Advisory Group
Are you a student age 12 to 17 who would like to help the library choose new young adult books and plan programs and activities for teens? Come to the next Teen Advisory Group meeting and brainstorm some new ideas to make the library more teen friendly. Participation in the group can count towards required community service, or “Change the World” projects, and it will look great on a college resume. For more information, contact Michelle at 244-7036, or email: email@example.com.
