Letter: Join us for First Wednesday series
To the Editor:
2017-2018 was an extraordinary First Wednesdays season, with Manchester again having the highest total attendance and average per lecture of the nine sites throughout the state.
First Wednesdays is a Vermont Humanities Council program hosted by Manchester Community Library in Manchester. The series broadens the horizons of all of us and the library is very pleased to offer this opportunity to community members in our region.
We love that there is no cost to attend a First Wednesdays program, but alas, it is not free to the library to present it to our community. We are indebted to Bill Drunsic, who year after year, generously underwrites the costs that the library pays to present this first-rate humanities lecture series.
This upcoming First Wednesdays season, with Bill's generous help, you and your neighbors will consider themes as diverse as "When Journalism Becomes Advocacy," "Music of the Late 1960s: Social Upheaval in Song," and "Lincoln's Second Inaugural Revisited," delivered by some of our country's most prominent authorities and compelling speakers.
We invite the community to join us on the first Wednesday of each month, October through May at the First Congregational Church, to take advantage of this stimulating and free opportunity.
Betsy Bleakie, executive director
Kate Orme, president
