Need a decidedly cool present for the person on your list who enjoys jotting down a few things here and there? Well, Croton Library is hosting a workshop that will involve making leather bound journals, items destined to make an aspiring writer, a compulsive note taker and/or the occasional doodler ecstatic with their gift.
Leather artisan Roxanne Middleton will be providing the guidance Thursday starting at 6pm. Registration is required and space is limited. Stop at the circulation desk to sign up or call 231.652.1615.
River Stop Cafe welcomes back The Andrews who will provide some nice string work on what are sure to be some familiar favorites from their cover list. Thursday 6:30-9pm.
In the mood for some really fine music that resonates a folk-pop sound with a bit of an edge? Seth Bernard is familiar to those who have followed his musical journey over the years or perhaps attended one of the Earthwork Harvest Gathering Events up near Lake City. Now add in the talented cellist and vocalist Jordan Hamilton and the Dogwood’s Black Box will be dishing up some rich sounds Friday night starting at 7:30pm. The club-like atmosphere at the Box is a perfect venue for kicking back to hear some tunes, perhaps accompanied by a glass of wine or a beer . And by the way among other choices they usually have Two Hearted AND Dirty Bastard on hand. You know, in case you wondered.
Jingle Mingle, known to local aficionados of holiday bazaars as “The Big One'', arrives Saturday at the Fremont Middle School. The doors open at 9am and they close around 3pm. That’s 6 hours of exploring the plethora of items and products offered up in a one stop shopping venue.
A major dent in your Christmas shopping awaits.
