There are some interesting upcoming events at the Lake Oswego Public Library this month.
The library is located in Lake Oswego’s First Addition neighborhood and is quite an asset to our community!
Home Swapping: Of particular interest and note to me is the fascinating idea of home swapping by Sara Tetreault. At first, I was thinking it was a new way to buy a house, but it is actually a quite brilliant way to go on vacation. According to the write up on Ms. Tetreault, she has complated 10 home exchanges in 9 years! That is crafty! She is speaking at the library about home swapping basics and providing information about using home swapping as a way of travel.
Steve Hale is back and the featured performer for this November’s First Tuesday Music Series. Catch him playing guitar and singing original soul inspired ballads at this encore performance.
Gideon Freudmann, a cello innovator, has created his own style of music called CelloBop – a fusion of blues, jazz, folk and much more.A classical musician by training, Freudmann earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Cello Performance from the University of Connecticut. Since that time, Freudmann has distinguished himself as one of New England’s finest solo cross-genre cellists, performing in literally hundreds of venues throughout the United States, including a featured performance at the New Directions Cello Festival in New York.
Why should you attend this presentation? Take it from the back cover of Corson’s book: “Think about where you are right now. How well would you and your family fare if today, right now, you were suddenly faced with an enormous disaster – a massive earthquake, a sudden flood, a horrific hurricane, tornado, super storm, or other catastrophic event?”In an interactive presentation and demonstration with plenty of time for questions, Corson will discuss shelter, fire, safe drinking water, and the myths and facts of emergency survival. He will bring a “Bug Out Bag” to show what the critical items every person and every household should have on hand in the event of an emergency. He will also discuss what a person needs to carry in their car whenever they leave home (always).Corson served as a drill sergeant in the US military, instructing new soldiers in basic combat training. After earning a master’s degree in judicial administration from Sangamon State University in Illinois, he spent 25 years with the Oregon State Police. As an OSP detective, Corson was responsible for successfully investigating several high-profile homicides. He served on the Oregon State Police SWAT Team as the team sniper for eight years. He currently lives with his wife in Tualatin.
