Do you play chess? Have you or your kids wanted to learn how? If you are 11 years old or older (or younger and accompanied by a parent!) join Hardwick resident and chess enthusiast Paul Fixx at the Jeudevine Memorial Library on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. Said Ben Franklin of chess in 1750: The Game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it, so as to become habits ready on all occasions; for life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with, and in which there is a vast variety of good and ill events, that are, in some degree, the effect of prudence, or the want of it.
Audrey Grant, Hazen student, will help kids start to knit or continue on a project they are already working on. We have yarn and needles! Or you can bring your own. Come every week or just when you feel like it.
Remember you can check out passes for 3 days for either free or reduced admission to the ECHO museum, Vermont Historical Society Museum, and the Fairbanks Museum. (We also have a pass to Vermont State Parks and Historic Sites and we will have one for the American Precision Museum in Windsor this summer!)
