Fruits of the Season

The Saturday Night movie at Brewsters attracted the largest number of viewers this summer: it couldn't have been a nicer night with the Perseid meteor shower sparkling through the night sky.  However, despite original plans, that will be the final movie of the summer.  Maybe meet you there next year?

An update on the Saturday Market:  Local produce has been a little scarce at the market this summer.  Last Saturday, Therese Bagshaw made a bold move.  She invited local residents (via Point Interface) to bring their own overflow produce to the market where she (Therese) would sell it and give the proceeds to the New Library Building Fund.

And people did indeed respond both givers and buyers: Therese gave the Fund $100 at the end of the day, largely derived from the transparent apples and plums (greengages and santa rosas) and chard that were brought and then bought, all of which appear to be abundant.  She divided the gifts into small paper bags and sold them for $2.00 each, I think.  What a good deed!

Unfortunately, she is not going to be able to repeat this at the final Saturday Market (the 25th).  So if anyone out there would like to slide into that slot, the FOPRL will be happy to do some produce-raising publicity for you.  Contact us at  (notice: that is a lower-case 'l' followed by the numeral 1).

Correction: August 18 is the joke-telling contest at the Community Center.  That would be Saturday night not Sunday night as I erroneously said in the last post.
