08/24/15- Chewonki Presents Hero Adaptations

On August 24th, the Chewonki foundation makes its triumphant return. Come and meet three live animals, and learn how these “heroic” creatures survive in the wild. The program will begin at 6PM and run for about an hour. The Chewonki program has been known to be one of our most popular events, so the program will be held in the park behind the library. Our supply of chairs has come up short in previous years, so if you would like a guaranteed seat, its suggested you show up early or bring a lawn chair. If it rains, an alternative location has been set up at the Readfield Elementary School.

This is an all ages event, so make sure to bring the whole family!
