Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania's doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn't showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac's cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

The LEGO Club meets Saturdays in the Children’s Activities Room from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. The program allows children to come and explore the wonderful world of LEGOs with other interested children. A different theme is picked each session, and kids can build on that theme or build a creation of their own. After each club meeting, kids can put their LEGO creations on display at the Library for all to see until the next club. This program is geared for elementary school children (with an adult) but is open to kids of all ages.
Children may bring LEGOs from home.
|Talk by Rep. Steve Kulik|
The Future of Renewable Energy
State Representative Stephen Kulik
Saturday, February 27, at 2 PM
Representative Stephen Kulik (D-Worthington) will talk about the future of renewable energy in Massachusetts. He will discuss various legislative initiatives, such as the Omnibus Energy Bill, the legislation affecting the Net Metering Cap on solar photovoltaic hookups, how renewable energy impacts the proposed Kinder Morgan Northeast Energy Direct gas pipeline, and other matters affecting our energy future. Come and bring your questions!
Stephen Kulik was first elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in October, 1993. He is now in his 12th term representing the 19 towns in the First Franklin District, located in the western Massachusetts counties of Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin, and geographically the second largest House district in the state. Prior to entering the legislature, Steve served 11 years as a selectman in the town of Worthington, where he was active in many regional and statewide organizations promoting the interests of municipal government, especially small towns.
During his time in the legislature, Steve has been a leader on issues of importance to his district, including public education, the environment and energy, economic development, health care, food and agricultural policy, and municipal government. Steve is presently the Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means, an influential position with responsibilities that include helping to craft the state's annual budget. As Vice-Chair, he sits on the six-member conference committee of the House and Senate which reconciles the two versions of the budget for presentation to the full legislature.
Please join us for this important talk. This event is cosponsored by the Sunderland Energy Committee.
