SMALL SUPPORT FUND
Since the flooding in town this past July, the Civic has received a number of donations from individuals, organizations and businesses in order for us to offer direct aid to people affected by the flood. This special fund continues to be used for small but meaningful purchases for community members who ask or are referred to us. The process in informal, trust-based and purposely low on red tape and bureaucracy. We have purchased car batteries and grocery cards, filled propane tanks, and covered the cost of electric hook ups. Our fund is small, but we are delighted to be able to answer need directly and simply as much as possible. If you or someone you know is in need, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to donate, you may do so on our support page, just make sure you add a note that the donation is explicitly for "the Civic Small Support Fund".
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. During our time together, 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. No previous haiku experience is needed to join. This event is hosted by Mark Scott in collaboration with the Civic Standard. Soup and snacks will be provided.
With a vision to revive community fiddling and a regional old-time music repertoire, all are welcome to join us on the last Wednesday of the month for an old-time jam session at the Civic! All players of string band-style instruments - fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, and mandolin - are encouraged to attend. Repertoire will be based on southern and northern old-time fiddle tunes. All levels of proficiency are welcome. (As per session etiquette, if you are an absolute beginner, please play on the periphery.) The session is free of charge, but donations 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.
