Mark your calendars! The Belden Noble Memorial Library’s new series, Getting to Know Your Neighbors, begins soon.
From May through December, you will have opportunities to meet and get to know several of your neighbors at the library. Some are well known beyond Essex, others not so much, but each has made a mark in some profession or field of endeavor as an entrepreneur, artist, public servant or volunteer. We believe their presence among us has contributed to the quality of life in our town and enriched our lives. They will talk about the interests and motivations that inspire their lives, the specific activity or activities that have absorbed their energies, and how Essex has inspired or shaped these activities. The series will be held on the first Thursday of each month from May through December at 7:00 p.m.
Here are the participants for 2018:
- May 3: Mary Nell Bockman and Andy Buchannan
- June 7: Shirley and Jim LaForest
- July 5: Libby and George Pataki
- August 2: Jori and Andy Wekin
- September 6: Norma Goff
- October 4: Karen Judge Dalton and Rick Dalton
- November 1: Kristin Kimball
- December 6: Ron Jackson
Many thanks to Jim Van Hoven for envisioning this series and all he has done to put it together! We look forward to seeing many of you in the library.
These events are fundraisers for the library: $5.00 per person (children free).
