Richard Kruppa brings to light the fascinating and unfamiliar stories about some of our most beloved wartime songs, including Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover, Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition, and Sentimental Journey. Learn the answers to these questions “What popular song was written in response to the bombing of Pearl Harbor? What song, popular here and abroad, was written to lift the spirits of our allies prior to our involvement in World War II?

Richard Kruppa, known musically as Ramblin Richard, sings these songs and tells their stories as he accompanies himself on acoustic instruments including guitar, banjo, and ukulele.

Join us and sing along! Register today. This program will be presented at the Milford Town Hall Banquet Room. Use the Middle Street entrance next to the old ambulance bays.

Evening Book Group

Tuesday April 28, 2015
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM

Our selection this month is Mayflower: a Story of Courage, Community and War by Nathaniel Philbrick.

From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a fifty-five-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.                         Publisher Description

Copies are available at the main desk. Newcomers are always welcome.

This group is for students in grades 2 and 3 only.  Please note that, in order to help me to plan materials and snacks,  you will need to register them for each session that they can attend. If s/he cannot attend this month, or at any other time, extra copies of out books can be found in the J Fic section of our library which is located just outside of the Children’s Room.

For this session, students should have read a biography book and completed the “Paper Bag Book Report”.  They will be sharing these with the group and I plan to display them in the Children’s Room after that.  We will also be having a yummy snack and talk about the next, and last, book assignment.
