Froggie Went A’Courtin Family Campfire

Join folk heritage musician Mary DeRosiers and Harris Center naturalist Susie Spikol Faber for a night around the campfire as we sing and share stories of frogs and their froggy ways. If weather permits, we’ll have a real campfire in the parking lot of the Hancock Town Library. If it’s raining like frogs and toads, we’ll meet in the Daniels Room for our evening’s entertainment. For families of all ages. Unplug and have a real good time! Friday, June 5, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Hancock Town Library. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Hancock Town Library.
