Art in Bloom- 5/19-5/27 Art Show & Sale (Flowers, gardening, landscape themes)
Fair Haven Retrospective– 6/23 – 7/1 The goal of this event is to capture the image of what Fair Haven was like in yesteryear. There were many good and also difficult aspects of life back then -- the architecture of the buildings, the characters that lived here, the simplicity of life before cell phones and autos (and yes, no indoor plumbing or refrigeration), the hardiness of the people who were able to thrive in difficult times, the resourcefulness of children who created their own games outside rather than sitting at the computer.. In today's complex world we may do well to remember the simple things that can make life meaningful and bring people together. And so, while we still have people in our midst that remember the stories and have access to photographs of the past we would like to pull them together into an artist's rendition of "Fair Haven Retrospective". We would like to make this an annual event, starting out this year with limited material and building on it each year. We would like younger people to be involved - perhaps interviewing some of the older generation and drawing or writing down their stories or even filming them. So, if you're interested in participating in this event in any way please bring your ideas to our planning meeting on Tuesday, January 16, at 10:00, and help us create a great show. Due to the cold and snow, we've decided to hold the meeting next door at the Hardware Café (it's also closer to the coffee)!

Talk: Dr. Peter Pollard - Freshwater Microbes and Greenhouse Gas Sunday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m Come and hear the story of Dr. Peter Pollard, a visiting Australian scientist and his adventures chasing carbon around the world and how it has led him to Fair Haven and Lake Ontario! Dr. Pollard has gone around the globe gathering samples to support his research in the area of carbon emissions from fresh water. He has had some surprising results which could have significant impact on current climate models. A few of us have had the chance to meet with him and have convinced him to give a talk here before he heads off to give one at the Jet Propulsion Lab in California next week. It is a rare opportunity to have this caliber of scientist come through our little town - especially one with such passion about his work ---coupled with a good sense of humor! He has promised to make his concepts understandable by " non-scientists".
