Thank you, Tom Folster!  The evening was informative and entertaining. The crowd expected the wonderful information on home brewing that they got, but Tom sure knows a lot about the history of beer too.  What should we do next?

CLINTON COMMUNITY LIBRARY’S FIRST OPEN MIC NIGHT

The Clinton Community Library hosted their first monthly Open Mic Night on Friday, January 22 in the Clinton Town Hall. The hall, which contains a stage, offers very good sound for musical performances. An intimate audience including about 17 community members of all ages enjoyed acoustic performances by library staff member Charlotte Victoria Marriott, as well as volunteer performers David Atcher and Susie Deane.

The Library plans to make Open Mic Night monthly fixture on their schedule. A longer and more varied roster of local performers are slated to share their talents at the next event, which takes place on February 26 at 7pm. Attendance, participation, snacks, and music are free and wonderful!
