Idea to Invention: Be a Maker!

Thursday, November 30, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Join Jason Clark to explore 3D Printing, microcontroller programming (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), basic mechanical design, robotics and more.

Depending on interest, potential projects include creating an automatic plant watering unit, a mini robot arm, a line following robot, a ghost detector, or a metal detector. Learn to think like an inventor. For ages 10 and up.

Jason is a lifelong Milford resident with 20 years of experience in prototype design and fabrication.  His latest project is a device that can measure blood sugar without a blood sample!  His projects vary wildly…  from automated bird feeders to temperature measuring robots.  His favorite part of any day is helping someone to the “ah-ha” moment, the point when an idea clicks.

Knit 1, Crochet 2

Mondays (except the 2nd Monday)
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM


Are you looking for other yarn addicts? Do your Monday nights seem dull? Look no further! Join us for a drop-in stitch-fest.  Bring your project in & be inspired; if you’re a beginner, your local craft store can help you select a project & requisite supplies. There will be no formal instruction but ‘knitwits’ are a helpful bunch and love indoctrinating the uninitiated into the cult of knitting.

All Refugee Lives Matter

Tuesday November 14, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Becky Sakellariou, who lives in both New Hampshire and in Greece, has been involved with the refugees in Greece since they began pouring into that country from Turkey 2 1/2 years ago.  She has visited transient camps with a team of midwives, emergency landing camps, and taught and worked in a couple of the 40+ mainland camps that are now home to about 65,000 refugees.  She has also raised funds for goods, foods, clothes, toys and other needed items for about 7 NGOs operating at very small centers, both urban and rural.  She will talk about her experiences, her perspectives and show slides to illustrate what is happening.
