DERRY BRIEFS

Taylor Library says ‘thank you’

Taylor Library invites everyone to an open house on June 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the library, 49 East Derry Road.

The event is to thank everyone who supported the library during the town budget season. Call 432-7186 for information.

Daisies are in bloom

Local Daisy Girls Scouts are helping a children’s garden grow at the Robert Frost Farm. The girls visited the farm recently to help with some planting duties and will return throughout the season to help with more gardening work, including helping plant bulbs in the fall.

The work will go to help support Scout badge requirements.

The Children’s Garden at the Frost Farm is a project under the watchful eye of the Derry Garden Club. The club’s members bring in youth every year to help tend the garden that is located at the side of the famed poet’s Derry farmhouse on Route 28.

Council approves Don Ball pavilion

At a meeting June 4, town councilors approved a plan for Derry Village Rotarians to build a pavilion at Don Ball Park off Humphrey Road.

The pavilion will offer a spot for families to rest out of the sun and enjoy the park. There will be no cost to the town as all services and materials will be donated.

Once finished, the pavilion will be then under the control of the Recreation Department.

Hyla Brook poetry series continues

The Robert Frost Farm’s Hyla Brook reading series continues June 13 at 6:30 p.m. with an appearance by the third annual Frost Farm poetry prize winner Caki Wilkinson of Sewanee, Tenn.

She will be joined by Hyla Brook member and poet Bob Moore.

The reading series is free and open to the public. An open mic event follows the reading. All are invited to share their works.
