& RESPONSIVE ORGANIZING
Getting people together is at the core of our mission, and almost every get-together includes food of some kind. Our weekly free supper is the most explicit example of food as cultural organizing. Lots of volunteers help with cooking, and the attendee list varies every week.
No reservations required, takeout always welcome.
Stop by any Wednesday from 5:30-7pm to see what's for supper.
Our organizing work sometimes looks like throwing a big party and inviting the whole town, and sometimes looks like putting out a volunteer call for mucking basements after a flood. Sometimes we do both these things in the same day. Our relief efforts are responsive, sometimes tiny and unseen, sometimes grand.
We are always listening, so feel free to stop in and tell us what you think is needed, and where the help is missing.
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.
