Tuesday, August 18 at 12 PM - Love to sing? Get ready to have some fun! The Good Memories Sing-along Café is an hour of fun and song. This cafe features the music of beloved American composer and songwriter, Cole Porter. Many of his songs became standards, noted for their witty, urbane lyrics, and many of his scores found success on Broadway and in film. This sing-along is led by Paul Langford, a renowned singer, arranger, conductor, keyboard player, and producer who has performed for two U.S. presidents and collaborated with the likes of Kenny Rogers, Josh Groban, and Celine Dion along with symphony orchestras across the country. Paul is one of the leaders of the weekly Good Memories Sing-Along Café which takes place on Zoom this summer and fall, partially sponsored by AgeGuide.

Wednesday, August 19 at 12 PM - Travel to the Beach with the Gail Borden Library and Guest Author Ralph Fletcher. Just a few words and lines on the page and participants are transported to the beach.
