Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners to bring you a series of workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension to provide research-based home gardening information to the public. Those of us who garden generally desire colorful plants, not just summer color. Join Master Gardener, Nell Nickolas, and learn how to select plants and shrubs that offer a wide range of colors, textures, and growing habits. The focus will be on easy-to-grow varieties that attract wildlife, are native to Pennsylvania, and locally available.  Workshops are $5.00 each. Please register by calling 1-877-345-0691. Walk-ins are accepted if space is available.

In partnership with the Master Gardeners, this year's series will meet the third Tuesday of every month through October.

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in the Ruggaber Community Room, Lower Level

Join us as we celebrate this summer's theme: A Universe of Stories with Mutual UFO Network PA Senior Field Investigator/State Section Director John Weaver. He will share details of the massive number of UFO sightings claimed during the summer of 1967. Were there really "flying saucers" seen over the region, was it hysteria driven by almost daily media reports, or a little bit of both? As a 12 year old, John Weaver saw something he cannot explain in the skies near Mechanicsburg that summer, fostering an interest in the strange which continues to this day. In his role as a Field Investigator, he interviews witnesses, as well as analyzes evidence and data as part of MUFON’s ongoing mission “The Scientific Study of UFOs for the Benefit of Humanity”. No registration necessary.
