We at the Stratford Public Library join in saluting the memories of two comics and humanitarians, people who not only made Americans laugh, but gave them cause to think, as well. Dick Gregory and Jerry Lewis both passed away the same day, Sunday August 20, but their shared legacies of laughter and philanthropy will live forever.

April 22: We celebrated National Poetry Month with an unforgettable reading from Therese Halscheid and Chris Bursk. Thirty-nine attendees gathered at the Whitman-Stafford Farmhouse, in Laurel Springs, to meet our poets upclose & personal and to have autographed copies of their books. Though it rained throughout the day, those gathered in the large gazebo enjoyed the poetry, fresh fruit & beverages and never complained about the weather. We all felt the warming spirit of Whitman who presided over the reading & blessed us all with his good vibes!
