Traveling Abroad on a Budget
Experiences of a Barrington Native
Wed. July 27th at 6PM
Alexis Cupp grew up in Barrington, New Hampshire but has always felt the need to travel. Alexis has been working abroad as a science teacher for the last three years and has lived in Ecuador, Qatar and Taiwan. She has had the wonderful opportunity to travel to many different countries and now is excited to be home for a short while before moving on to the next country.
Join us for this slide show and presentation on her experience and how you can travel on a budget.
Kids are invited to join Ms Wendy at the town playground for a special TOUCH-A-TRUCK STORY TIME. Learn about those who take care of us and our town, and get a chance to see their vehicles up close and personal on Thursday, August 11th at 11am. She will read stories first and then lead children and families over to the parking lot for a tour of vehicles from Barrington’s Fire, Rescue, Police and Road Crew! No registration required.
Hiking Barrington Trails: Explore Local Nature Walks
Wednesday, August 24th from 6-7PM
In the past 20 years, over 3000 acres of land in Barrington has been protected from development. Important wildlife habitat, lands protecting water supplies, and scenic views that help maintain the town’s “Rural Character” have all been saved from potential development. Of course much of that land is also open to the public for passive recreation, including hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, etc. Mountain biking and horseback riding are permitted on some of the trails also.
Barrington Conservation Commission chair and Trails Committee member John Wallace will give a presentation on trails open to the public in Barrington, and some of the notable features to watch out for.
This will be a group that meets monthly to share and critique writing they are working on at home. A place where writer’s can share their work, get feedback, and meet others who are writing. Dates for upcoming meetings will be: June 25th, July 23rd, August 27th, October 1st, November 5th, and December 3rd from 10:30AM-Noon.
If you are
interested in coming once a month to such a group, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name and contact information. High school age and up are welcomed to join.
Although it is wonderful if you can make all the sessions; it is not required. You can certainly select ones that fit your schedule and take a weekend off when necessary.
