On Tuesday, September 20 at 7:00 PM, the Epsom Public Library will
host Doug Craw who will be presenting his program, “Riding Across
America for a Cause.” Doug biked solo across the country this
summer in his quest to raise money for the Granite State
Independent Living program, a non-profit organization that, among
other things, helps troubled teens graduate from high school and
gain self-worth. He met friendly people, nosy animals, endured
heat and rain and frequently battled loneliness. Now safely
back home in Epsom, he will share his experiences with us.
The movie for Wednesday, September 21 at 1:30 PM is “Money Monster,”
starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. Clooney’s
character, Lee Gates, is a bombastic TV personality who has
pushed viewers to purchase a high tech stock which has
mysteriously crashed. An irate investor takes Gates, his
producer played by Roberts and his television crew hostage on live
TV. All must find a way to keep themselves alive while trying
to find the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.

Valley Artisans Artisan Of The Month
Deborah Fine of Henniker has always had a deep love for working and
creating with her hands. While raising her two daughters with her
husband, Steve, she worked as a pre-school teacher, was a part time
puppeteer and started to make jewelry for friends and family after
studying at the New Hampshire Institute of Arts. After retiring from
teaching, she decided to take her passion for creating jewelry to a
new level. She sold in many boutiques across NH and Fl. and at the
Currier Museum of Art. Her custom wire jewelry has a unique and
distinctive style. The sensitive integration of form, texture and
color plays an integral part in her fresh jewelry designs. Her use
of wire is inspired by her love and appreciation of nature and its
flowing lines found throughout. Her signature style piece was
featured in the November 2007 issue of Living Well Magazine. One of
her styles is named in honor of the famous elephant, Modoc, whose
story inspired her to reach out to help orphaned baby elephants. As
a result, a percentage of her sales are donated to a non-profit, The
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, located in Kenya, Africa. She has
scaled back her business and now currently only sells at Valley
Artisans in Epsom, where she has been a member since 2008.
Deborah has donated a lovely pair of earrings for this month’s
drawing at the shop.
All of us at Valley Artisans invite you to
stop by and see other items made by Deborah and all the many fine
items made by our other numerous local crafters.
Valley Artisans is located in Epsom and is
open Wednesday thru Sunday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
