HELP BRING GUY DAVIS BACK TO DANBURY

Some of us fondly remember Blues Singer Guy Davis and his remarkable Blues presentation to the students at the Danbury Elementary School about six years ago.

Guy is a first magnitude blues performer, blues historian and blues advocate. In a typical evening concert he performs a variety of blues arrangements in a multitude of styles using blues harp, six string, twelve string and slide guitars and Banjo. He has a remarkable rapport with children and has a highly unique method of engaging their interest.

Guy is very well known in the blues world. He has performed all over the US in concerts, festivals and clubs and almost routinely makes foreign tours. He is thought by some to be the best acoustic blues guitarist in the world today. Guy’s last performance here was possible because he was in the neighborhood for an even- ing event. His fortuitous morning presentation at the elementary school was possi- ble as an add-on to his evening schedule and our cost was a small fraction of his normal evening concert fee. The experience was one that the children are not likely to forget!

In April, Guy will once again be performing in this area. He will be performing at the Shaker Bridge Theatre in Enfield where he will do three performances (April 6,7 and 8th) of his own one man show entitled: The Adventures of Fishey Waters, In Bed with The Blues. Once again, he has agreed to perform for the Danbury Ele- mentary School and we have scheduled him for Friday morning, April 6th. This is our opportunity to provide a valuable and unique experience for the elementary school kids that is way outside the normal curriculum and one that they will love.

SO, we have to raise some money and we are asking the community to help. A total of $500 will support this event. Community financial support in under- writing this event will be an excellent demonstration of the community’s posi- tive feelings about the elementary school and the need to keep it here! Please help. Send your tax deductible donation to the Danbury Community Center, 15 High Street, Danbury, NH 03230. Please make out checks to “Danbury Community Center” and in the comment area write in “for Guy Davis Con- cert”.

A BIG THANK YOU THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED WE ARE GETTING

CLOSE TO OUR GOAL!!!!!!

George Gamble Library

Library News – April 2018

Writing this news piece between March snowstorms and knowing that the warm soil that seeds will need is buried under many inches of cold snow, it seems a trifle optimistic to think about gardens. However, the calendar reassuringly shows that spring weather and days of gardening will soon arrive.

Any of you who might be considering how to involve children in family gardening endeavors can find great ideas at the library. Inspiration can come from a book titled, ‘The Gardener’. It is about a young girl who loves to garden but must go to spend a year in the city with her uncle who owns a bakery. She is happy to learn how to bake, but wonders if there will be any place to plant seeds. ‘Compost – A Family Guide to Making Soil From Scraps’ will help young gardeners understand how compost helps plants grow and why we should always treat earthworms with kindness. A new addition to the children’s nonfiction collection is

‘Plant, Cook, Eat!: A Children’s Cookbook’. With colorful photographs and clearly organized information, this books details the garden to kitchen process of planting, harvesting and cooking home-grown crops.

Healthy, delicious, kid-friendly recipes, such as bean and bacon spa- ghetti, polenta chips, and tomato, feta, basil pizza, are included.

As the snow melts and the sun shines on the Danbury Grows Communi- ty Garden at the library, signs of life will begin to appear. The perenni- al flowers and herbs, as well as newly planted annual flowers and vege- tables will be available to pick through summer into the fall. Stop into the library to say hello, borrow a book, check out what is available at The Annex and enjoy the garden area.

Here is the final reminder to join the Friends and Grange members at the annual evening of Poetry and Pastries on Saturday, April 14th, 7pm at the Grange Hall. Whether participating by sharing favorite poetry or by enjoying the fun as part of the audience, adults and children are invited to help celebrate National Poetry Month.

May Pole Sock Hop At the DCC When: April 28th

Time: 7-10 Bristol Community Services will be working with the Danbury Community Center this summer to bring the GOT LUNCH! Newfound program to Danbury! BCS rolled out this national program last year at Bristol El- ementary School, targeting students who qualify for free lunch, and supplied nutritious lunches to fifty children from twenty-one families for eight weeks over the summer. Each week families would come in to pick up groceries that rotated between wheat bread, p.b. and jelly, baby carrots, cucumbers, and fresh fruit one week and bread, tuna (or canned chicken) with fresh fruits and veggies the next week;

each week’s bag would also include a voucher for dairy items. The program was run at a cost of $5,000 which came from a very generous donation. Rolling out the program to include children from DES, New Hampton and BHVS will double or most likely triple the cost for this year. If you are interested in spon- soring a child at $100/summer or making a donation of any amount please mail it to Bristol Community Services at 24 Pleasant St. Bristol, NH 03222 or dona- tions can be dropped off during BCS business

hours. Applications will be going home with children

The DCC is working with the Bristol Community Ser-

vice to bring GOT LUNCH! Program to Danbury!!!

The DCC is looking to see who would be interested in giving blood here at the center. We need a list of donors before we can set up a date and time.

We have a sign up paper at DCC to see who would be interested.

Because of the snow storms the Red Cross has a high need for blood!

Friendly Forum

Geese help each other. They take turns with leadership & help when others are sick or in- jured. Elders can be isolated, which is a huge loss for them & their communities. Like geese, we can share our experience & skill, to assist others.

We are looking forward to Spring weather and have brain- stormed some events and adventures to consider for the coming months. We plan to return to the amazing Tarbin Gardens for a spot of tea and a peaceful walk through acres of beautiful plants.

We would also like a picnic at the Franklin Dam. In Warner, we could go to Kearsarge Mt. Indian Museum and perhaps the NH Telephone Museum. We thought of a Lake Sunapee Cruise, a visit to the Newfound Audubon Center, and to the Markus Wild- life Sanctuary and Loon Center in Moultonborough. Squam Lake Science Center would also be fun. There were three ideas in Manchester: We could visit the Zimmerman House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Courrier Art Museum and you will never guess who suggested we go to Vertical Dreams. We are even con- sidering a trip to Vermont to visit Billings Farm and Museum.

We meet at the Center and car pool to share these adven- tures. All are welcome. While we decided to meet on odd months for our Friendly Forum Meetings, we need an April meeting to plan our calendar. Please join us on Friday, April 6, at about 10:10 (right after Bone Builders is over).
