Santa Claus is Real. A lecture for adults by Dustin Pari. Tuesday, December 5, at 7:00 PM.  Flyer background is white with festive red ribbon, sprigs of evergreen, pinecones, and silver bells. A photo of Dustin Pari is in the top right corner. The event image is a photo of a Santa Claus hat on a table, highlighted by a spotlight in an otherwise unlit room.  Dustin Pari is welcomed to the Blackstone Public Library yet again! If his paranormal lectures haven’t interested you, don’t hesitate to come by for this festive Christmas lecture.  “The winter holidays and Santa Claus go mitten in mitten. Yet every Christmas season it seems more and more people lose their hope, lose their childlike innocence, and lose their belief. In this lecture for adults, Dustin discusses the history of jolly old Saint Nicholas- and if you’ll lend your ears this way, you will learn not just the backstory of Kris Kringle, but you may even find out there’s a little Santa in all of us.” – dustinpari.com  Dustin is well known for his time spent as part of ‘Ghost Hunters’ and ‘Ghost Hunters International,’ as well as his appearances on ‘Destination Truth’ and ‘Ghost Nation.’ Traveling the world in search of answers has given him years of experience and understanding of the unseen realm. Dustin has become sought after not only for his popular paranormal events, but for his motivational and spiritual lectures as well. We are thrilled to have him at our library again, so don’t miss out on this event!  Registration is required, see our events page. Call Blackstone Public Library at 508-883-1931 for more information.  This event is funded by Dean Bank.

Image at the top of the flyer is a photograph of Jeff Snow, wearing Celtic plaid and resting an autoharp against his shoulder.  Don't miss out on this beautiful gathering of Celtic and Christmas music!  "Growing up as the son of a drummer in a Bagpipe band and in a home where older Celtic songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff developed a love for the music of Scotland, England and Ireland.   The magical sounds from the instruments coupled with vocals and Jeff's love and knowledge of his Scottish heritage create a delightful program of traditional and original tunes and songs.  Much of the history of Scotland, England and Ireland is preserved in song. Hearing those stories along with the songs educate as well as entertain. You will see singing, laughing, lots of smiles and perhaps a few tears." - jeffsnow.net  Registration is required. Visit our Events Page.
