program highlights

Wee Gillis Musical Program

Sat, Jun 2nd

1:00pm - 2:00pm




Wee Gillis is a story about a boy who lives in Scotland and divides each year between the Lowlands, where he learns to call cattle with a very loud voice, and the Highlands where he stalks stags, holding his breath so as not to make a sound. Because he can control his breath so well, he is the only one able to play a magnificent new bagpipe. Don Scott will read the story by Mundro Leaf and Wheaton McClanathan will play the bagpipe.


Geared to ages 4 to adult.

The Literate Foodie Club

Mon, Jun 4th

12:30pm - 2:30pm



Join us on Monday, June 4, 2018 for a meeting in which the question posed will be: “If you were stranded on a desert island, and could only have one cookbook, which one would you choose?”  Bring in your favorite cookbook to answer that question, AND bring in another cookbook to swap with the group.

Group participation is required, but no advance reading is necessary!  Just come, and tell us all about your favorite cookbook.  Snacks will be available, of course.  (Anyone wishing to volunteer for snack duty, please email me directly!)  For this meeting, there will be no fee EXCEPT for a donation of any non-perishable item to the Foothills Food Bank. Donated cookbooks for the swap, if not claimed, will also be donated to Desert Foothills Library.

This is a social meeting, to which we are also inviting the cookbook club, and will be our last regular meeting  until September, 2018.

Facilitated by Dana Rakinic. Questions? Contact danarakinic@gmail.com
