Fairhaven Seed Exchange…yes, it is spring!
The Fairhaven Sustainability Committee has once again set up the seed exchange. Anyone interested in participating can bring in seeds to the library and choose different ones from the collection. The display will be located in the front of the library under the stain glass window to the right. There will be boxes of seeds in categories for people to choose from to plant at home.
For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Ship Models on Display
Our current display in the Rogers Room is the work of William A. Smith, of Fairhaven who was a carpenter for 55 years. He has been making ship models for about 10 years. To date he has completed a dozen boats. The ships on display are JESSICA which was completed in 1999 and took a number of months to finish; JEAN MARIE constructed in 2013 and took an entire year to complete and a tug boat which was created in 2014.
