Friday Night Film Crew - Me, Drew, Stephanie, and Jane
It is very late, but I just wouldn't feel right if I didn't take the time to talk about what a special night we just had at the Library. Just a few short hours ago, we showed The Secret Life of Bees, the fourth film in our Friday Film Series. The house was packed for this wonderfully rich and well-told story. Every drop of coffee and every sweet morsel were consumed, as we have come to expect...what was unexpected, however, was the delightful and generous effort of our good friend, neighbor, and beekeeper(!) Kathy Hammell (shown at right). Earlier in the day, she stopped by the Library to drop off her beekeeping suit and a hive (empty, of course) and Stephanie (always ready to make a fashion statement) couldn't resist wearing it when it came time to draw for the door prize (a jar of Kathy's own honey!). When the film was over, Kathy gave a great talk about bees and beekeeping and she answered lots of questions from a truly engaged audience. (Thank you, Kathy!)
The movie was a hit. The talk was a hit. What a great start to the weekend!
