The movie matinee on
Wednesday, August 22 at the Epsom Library is “Molly’s Game.”
Directed by Aaron Sorkin and based on the book by Molly Bloom, the
film is based on a true story of a world-class Olympic skier who ran
an exclusive high stakes poker game for 10 years before being
arrested in the middle of the night by FBI agents. Unbeknownst
to her, the Russian mob was one of her biggest players and of much
interest to the FBI. Her defense lawyer became her only ally.
Please note that this is a change in schedule from the library’s
Wednesday evening, the
22nd at 7:00 PM, sit back and enjoy “Music from the Woods.”
Jimbo Pero, an Epsom native, will play a variety of music on his
fiddle, including French Canadian and New England style fiddle
music. He has been well-received at other musical events and
we look forward to hearing him. Please join us.

Artisan of the Month
Over twenty years ago, Jan Hoadley of Epsom, heard about a
local master basket weaver who was offering classes. Finding this
activity to be quite enjoyable and a great way to relax from a busy
teaching schedule, it soon became a passion for her. Retirement has
given Jan a greater opportunity to devote more time and energy to
developing this skill through further classes and personal
Jan’s baskets are made
from quality reed, using a variety of different techniques. Some are
simply decorative, most are functional, handcrafted in various
styles, shapes and sizes. She particularly enjoys using colored reed
to add interest and impact. It is exciting for Jan to create
different designs and patterns, and to watch the shape of the basket
unfold. Each basket has its own unique personality.
Jan’s goal is to present
a quality product that will be a welcome addition to any home and
bring pleasure and enjoyment for many years to come.
Jan has donated one of
her unique baskets for Valley Artisans’ August drawing. Jan
and all of us at Valley Artisans welcomes you to stop by the shop at
10 Goboro Road in Epsom and enter the drawing and check out our
three rooms of locally crafted items.
Valley Artisans is open
Wednesday thru Sunday from 10AM - 6 PM
