Fun Fairy House Competition
The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park
The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park

Friday, September 25 from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm

The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park

Join Life and Whim and The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park for a Fun Fairy House Competition to celebrate the launch of the beautiful new Fairy Trails! Bring the magic back to the Fairy Trails and spread joy for kids in the community! As described below, we are having a fun, no-pressure competition to encourage fairy-house building, but if you’d prefer not to be in the competition we would still love for you to build a house for the trails. (Note this is not an in-person event - all houses will be made by the makers at their homes and placed on the fairy trails over the weekend of September 25-27th. We hope to do our Fairy Fest event next year!) DATE Please place your fairy house on the new trail by the weekend of September 25-27th. Houses will be judged by Life and Whim and The Botanic Garden the week of September 28th and results announced via the event page on Saturday, October 3rd. THEME The theme for the competition is “A Community in Bloom.” Show your passion for northern Michigan by showcasing an aspect of the area you love in your fairy house. Let’s build a magical community for the fairies! Some fairy house ideas are: a garden, the library, a barn/farm, an ice cream shop, sailboat/marina, pizza parlor, cottage, treehouse, music house, school house, art studio, biking club… your fairy house can be literal (i.e., closely modeled after a recognizable structure or landmark) or creatively inspired by something you love about our area. LOCATION The new Fairy Trails is located at The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park to the right of the Butterfly Garden and across from the Pavilion (you’ll see a sign indicating the trail). The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park 1490 Red Drive, Traverse City, MI REGISTER To see the fairy house building guidelines and to register for the event please click the link below and sign-up at the form at the bottom of the page and I've also listed the direct registration link as well. www.lifeandwhim.com/fairy-house-competiton www.lifeandwhim.com/register-fairy-house-competition

Harbor Springs Library

The Harbor Springs Library hosts a toddler storytime with Miss Linda every Thursday morning at 10:30am for children 3 and under.    Early childhood storytimes are a great way to introduce preliteracy and a love of reading. We sometimes sing songs or nursery rhymes along with reading short stories. Typically toddler storytime lasts 20-30 minutes. While we certainly don't expect toddlers to sit still with their hands in their laps and listen this is a great time for kids to learn library skills such as using their inside voice sitting for an extended period of time and taking turns. Young ones are free to wiggle and squirm though and will still soak up the benefits of reading aloud with friends.  This is also a great opportunity for parents of young children to meet each other and have a social outing each week.

Whitney Museum of American Art

Online via Zoom As Mexico emerged from its revolution in 1920 artists looked for ways to respond to new formations of public life. Seeking to connect native culture and art with a modernist sensibility new sometimes romanticized depictions of peasant life took center stage. This session will explore how the work of Diego Rivera José Clemente Orozco Frida Kahlo Alfredo Ramos Martinez and others sought to forge an art form responsive to the radical cultural transformations happening in Mexico at that time. Xin Wang is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum and a Ph.D. candidate in modern and contemporary art at the Institute of Fine Arts NYU. She is the curator of numerous exhibitions in the U.S. Europe and Asia and her latest writings have appeared in Art in America Art Agenda and Wallpaper (Chinese edition).

Spy Pilot: The Cold War Controversy
Oct 2
Fall for the Book
Online Event

Friday, October 2 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Fall for the Book

Gary Powers, Jr. revisits one of the most famous controversies of the Cold War - one that hits close to home - in this free, virtual event. About this Event In Gary Powers, Jr.’s book Spy Pilot: Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 Incident, and a Controversial Cold War Legacy, a son uses declassified documents to dispel misinformation about his father, the pilot famously shot down over the Soviet Union in May 1960 and captured by the KGB -- one of the most talked about events of the Cold War. Despite later being cleared of all charges, Powers’ apology at a televised Soviet show trial created a controversy that dogged him for the rest of his life. Vince Houghton, curator at the International Spy Museum says, “Spy Pilot is our chance to finally meet the man behind the legend.” Author Norman Polmar calls the book “a must-read for those interested in the Cold War, intelligence, and aviation.” Gary Francis Powers, Jr. is the Founder and Chairman Emeritus of The Cold War Museum. He co-wrote Spy Pilot with historian Keith Dunnavant. Sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. This talk is part of the virtual Fall for the Book festival. Events run from September - November 2020. Visit fallforthebook.org for more information. To Watch: 1. Click the Livestream link - https://www.crowdcast.io/e/fftb_spypilot 2. Click "Save my Spot" 3.

The Downtown Gaylord Farmers Market opening day is planned for Saturday May 23 2020 from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm under the Pavilion located in beautiful downtown Gaylord.Due to COVID-19 the Downtown Gaylord Farmers Market is taking all precautions deemed necessary by National and State guidelines to ensure the safety of both customers and vendors.  Because of the guidelines this market season will be a different one but the ability to purchase quality food products from people you know will remain unchanged.In an effort to create the proper social distancing standards and fulfill state guidelines on capacity we will be limiting the number of shoppers at a time to enter the market.  The layout of the market may be one that is different then in year’s past. Please stay 6 ft. away from other shoppers no congregating and if you have a mask please wear one.  Many vendors are encouraging “pre-orders” and “pre-paid” options for their customers.  Reach out to those vendors you are familiar with and inquire about that particular service.It is our hope that at some point in the season we will be able to relax some of the guidelines as mandated but at this point in time we will do what is necessary to create a safe market atmosphere. Should you have any questions please contact our Market Manager Dave Duffield at 989-350-9680 or check our Facebook page Downtown Gaylord Farmers Market for timely updates.
