In case you missed it: this class will highlight mushroom identification. Although we love getting out in the woods, this class will not have any field time. We will bring some mushrooms for identification, but we would really like to see what you have found in your local forests and other habitats. This informative class took place April 13, 2023.
Linda Barry, Gilford resident, has a small Titanic connection & will revisit “A Night to Remember” around the 111th anniversary. With the tragedy of the Titanic as backdrop, we’ll ponder what it means to be a leader in the 21st century.
Glenn Knoblock explores the fascinating history of New Hampshire's beer and ale brewing industry from Colonial days, when it was home-and tavern-based, to today's modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state's earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Illustrations present evidence of society's changing attitudes towards beer and alcohol consumption over the years. Whether you're a beer connoisseur or a "tea-totaler", this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages. Presented in conjunction with the NH Humanities Program.
