Turners Falls RiverCulture (TFRC): Press Releases

Adventure or Destiny? The Rendezvous!

There is a brand new addition to the downtown at 78 3rd Street. The new Rendezvous bar is a comfortable community hang-out with some extra added attractions, such as music, readings, knitting, board games, Ms. Pacman, and yummy yummy food. It looks pretty swank but they’’re hoping you’’ll stroll in just as you are - flip flops and tank tops or top hat and tails. Shoes, shirt: service. Dock your shuttle there!

To celebrate, check out the entertainment line up for the GRAND OPENING GALA week, 9/12-16
Grand opening festivities at the Rendezvous here.

Friday: Burgess Story Hour

Come hear stories about local wildlife, learn how the power of close observations and imagining how wildlife survives creates life-long connections with wildlife study. Over 170 books and 15,000 stories by Thornton Burgess chronicle the tales of Peter Rabbit and his animal friends, including Jimmy Skunk, Grandfather Frog, Johnny Chuck, Sammy Jay, Reddy Fox, Hooty Owl and many others. Through these engaging stories, generations of young people have learned about the natural world and have developed an understanding of the importance of conservation of our natural resources.
