What's happening now
Every Wednesday at 5:30pm:
We are serving a free community meal every in the park next door to the Civic.
Get in touch to volunteer, and stop by to share a meal with your neighbors.
The Civic headquarters is usually open Monday-Thursday from about 9am-3pm (and till evening on Wednesdays), and any time you see the open flag out. We can often be found cooking upstairs, and sometimes having a meeting in the living room.
We always welcome volunteers to help with all the things~ tidying, baking, planning . . .
We mean it: all help is welcome.
FREE COMMUNITY MEALS
Every Wednesday evening, in the park next to the Civic, rain or shine, all are welcome for a free community supper at 5:30pm. This week, we'll also be pressing cider, so bring your apples and some containers to take cider home with you. If you're looking for apples to glean, here's a map of trees in the neighborhood (thanks to the Small Farm Guild!):
On the last Thursday of each month at the Village Restaurant from 6-8pm, hosted by a rotating roster of locals. Lynn is generously opening the door just to host this monthly community game, and will be offering a limited menu of burgers, wings and appetizers. This is a first come, first serve event, with room for roughly ten teams.
All are welcome the first Wednesday of each month from 5:30- 7pm at the Civic. We will read some published haiku and review suggested guidelines for writing haiku. Feel free to bring a piece you are currently working on to share with the group. Hardwick Haiku strives to be a supportive and fun environment, and no previous experience is necessary. This event is hosted by Mark Scott in collaboration with the Civic Standard.
Due to popular demand, we are now gathering TWICE A MONTH, on the second and fourth Wednesdays at 7 pm. With a vision to revive community fiddling and a regional old-time music repertoire, all are welcome to join us at our free old-time jam session at the Civic! All players of string band-style instruments - fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, and mandolin - are encouraged to attend. All levels of proficiency are welcome. Snacks and beverages will be provided, and listeners are welcome to attend.
OLD-TIME FIDDLE CLASS
Every third Monday at 7pm. This group class is for beginners and up! Thanks to the generous support of Dana Robinson and Cabot Arts this class is free, though donations are always gratefully accepted. Get in touch with any questions.
COSTUME SWAP OPEN ALL MONTH!
The free "Costume Swap and Drop" is open every Wednesday (and any time the open flag is out).
For the month of October, we'll put out our collection of theatrical clothes, disguises, and accessories-- and we welcome any outgrown or interesting items you are willing to pass on!
