WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Woods Hole resident Les Garrick will be speaking at the library on Wednesday, September 10, at 7:30 p.m., about his new book ”Historic Hatchville” a history of Falmouth’s most rural historic village. Most people nowadays may be unaware of the rich and fascinating history of Hatchville, of its reputation as being home to “the biggest ranch in Massachusetts” which in fact comprised more than 18 square miles and was thus one of the most extensive holdings in the whole north-eastern United States. Additionally, Hatchville was the source of many holly cultivars, location of cranberry and strawberry fields, as well as home to a private airport. At the center of these activities was the village of Hatchville, complete with a school and post office, with Mrs. Hatch as post mistress. The talk is free and open to the public. For more information call (508) 548-8961..

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM:
The museum announces the publication of its newest, eagerly anticipated, book: "Atlantis Stories: Before the Mast on a Sailing Research Vessel, 1944-1948," by William B. Cooper in which he tells about the early days aboard WHOI's sailing research vessel Atlantis when it was doing research on underwater sound as part of the war effort. The museum will hold this special event for the book on Friday, September 12, from 12:30.– 2:00 p.m., which will be the first public opportunity to buy this limited edition, available solely at the museum. The editors, Arthur Gaines (WHOI oceanographer emeritus) and Jay Burnett (NOAA, retired), as well as Douglas Cooper, son of Bill and author of the preface and epilogue, will speak about the process which led to the finished book, richly illustrated with archival photographs. Light refreshments will be served. This event is open to the public. The museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., through the end of September.

Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: Presents the PBS video “Great Cathedral Mystery” on Friday, September 19, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. Master craftsmen explore how Florence’s monumental dome was built nearly 600 years ago. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: On Saturday, September 20 at 2:00 p.m., noted local naturalist/teacher Becky Lash will present a program about Monarch butterflies at the library. For years Becky has been introducing children to insects in entomology classes at the Children’s School of Science in Woods Hole. In fact, she can claim to have inspired some of her students to go on to graduate studies in entomology. Throughout the late summer she has been supplying the library with a constant crop of milkweed, complete with Monarch eggs and caterpillars. They grow larger and larger, form beautiful lime green chrysalids with metallic golden spots, and become adults, right in the middle of the library’s children’s room. So far, the library has released more than 20 Monarch adults outside, carefully transporting them to local buddleias, sunflowers, and zinnias. People stand in awe and admiration as the butterflies flap their beautiful new deep orange wings for the first time in the sunshine, and raise themselves aloft. Becky’s program at the library will explain the life cycle of Monarchs, giving details of where they come from, how they live, and where they go. She will undoubtedly have some caterpillars or chrysalids to show. Following Becky’s presentation, participants will move to a hands-on craft activity of decorating life-size paper monarchs to mail as part of a “migration,” an inter-national educational project sponsored by “Journey North-The Symbolic Migration.” The paper butterflies will be used to promote both international friendships among children and Monarch conservation in Mexico. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit www.learner.org/north/search/Symbolic.html.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM: An exhibit of drawings from nature by the students of Julie Child will open on September 15. The museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, please call (508) 548-7270.
