LARGE AUDIENCE ENJOYS JEFF WARNER

A large group of Henniker residents gathered on Sunday, January 26th to hear Jeff Warner perform old folk songs.  Little did they know that they would be singing along, playing the spoons, as well as enjoying Jeff''s tales of olden days.  The crowd remarked upon the conclusion of the NHHC program, "that was the fastest hour,"  "I could have sat and listened for several more hours," and my favorite, "time flies when you are having fun"" 
TED TALKS @ TFL
February meeting of the White Birch Senior TED Talk was enjoyed by 12 Henniker residents.  Our next TED Talk and discussion will be on the BIG BANG THEORY.

TED Who?

 

What in the world is TED Talks, How many  of us know?

Beth Ann says not just the Spirit, to the library we must go.

 

It was a very cold morning, but many of us were there,

I got myself comfortable in a nice cozy chair.

 

Now I’m thinking this is going to be boring,

Sure hope I don’t get caught sitting here snoring.

 

As I listened and related I felt myself begin to smile,

This Billy writes poetry that really is my style.

 

We know we will forget the poetry that was read to all us here,

No problem it will happen, there is nothing for us to fear.

 

Now we know about TED Talks and the many programs we can view,

Next month its all about magic, maybe we can learn a trick or two.
