Jerry Schneider – “Making Space for Pollinators”

Thursday, August 1st, 11:00am

New Ipswich Library

Thanks to The Stearns Burton Lecture Fund, Jerry Schneider, “The Butterfly Guy”, will be presenting “Making Space for Pollinators” at the New Ipswich Library on Thursday, August 1st, at 11am!

Jerry Schneider, inventor of the award-winning Butterfly Game, has presented nature programs in schools and libraries for the past thirteen years throughout the Eastern US. His programs helps inspire youths and adults alike to pay more attention to our friends, the butterflies, bees, bats, and other pollinators. Audiences learn how to create and maintain pollinator habitats. In recent years, a number of schools have built butterfly gardens on the Monarch’s migration path. In Vermont, legislators are working on a bill to help protect bees.

The program concludes with a wonderful T-shirt craft. Children may purchase heavy cotton T-shirts for $4.00 or bring their own.

Mr. Schneider, a former teacher and children’s librarian, invented The Butterfly Game in 2001. It received a Parents Publication Award in 2004. Jerry was a steering committee member of the Vermont Butterfly Atlas Project, a 5 year study of butterfly populations in Vermont. He lives in Hardwick, Vermont.

This program is suitable for children ages 5 and up, and the presentation will take around 50-60 minutes. The program is sponsored by the Stearns Burton Lecture Committee.

The AARP Presentation “The best defense against being a victim of frauds and scams is education or everything you always wanted to know about Frauds and Scams with an emphasis on Identity Theft but were afraid to ask” is coming to the New Ipswich Library.

Every day, millions of Americans lose their hard-earned money to identity theft, investment fraud, and other types of scams.  Last year alone, 12.6 million were victims of identity theft.  That’s one person every 3 seconds!

And that is why AARP New Hampshire fraud fighters and the New Ipswich Library is hosting a free presentation, open to the public of all ages, to educate Granite Staters about the three Rs of fraud: recognize, resist, and report.

The program will be presented by AARP trained “Fraud Fighter” Marc Boyd.  He will present and discuss an overview of local and national fraud trends, the Con Artist Playbook, Prevention, and Resources available.  This should prove to be a lively and informative evening.

This event is free, but a donation for the ​St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville is always welcome.

Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt Germany on June 12, 1929. She lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, having moved there with her family at the age of four-and-a-half when the Nazis gained control over Germany. By May 1940, the Franks were trapped in Amsterdam by the German occupation of the Netherlands. As the hatred for Jewish people increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in the building where Anne’s father worked. From then until the family’s arrest by the Gestapo in August 1944, Anne kept a diary she had received as a birthday present, and wrote in it regularly. Our story starts on July 6, 1942 in the secret Annex and gives you a taste of what life was like for her. In this world where there is a lot of hate this a wonderful program about Perseverance, Hope, and Love leaving us all with a stronger message.

This event is free, but a non-perishable donation to the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville would be appreciated.
