Building community by sharing the wonders of learning, creating, and connecting with one another.
Hello South Country Community,
Thank you to everyone who donated for the Great Give Back! All items from the supply drive and money from Pennies for Pets were donated to Almost Home Animal Rescue. We raised a total of $185! And here are the great items we collected:
We are happy to welcome the South Country String Band for their first library show. Greg Smith, Larry Sribnick, and Hank Stone are good friends and fine local musicians who favor local venues. SCSB plays an eclectic mix of styles (pop, folk, and traditional) and original tunes with engaging harmonies. Audience participation is encouraged.
