Going to bat for bats!

At 6:30 on Tuesday, Oct. 29, the Gloucester Garden Club Speaker Series goes to bat for bats in a special, free, Halloween talk about our helpful little friends. Tom French, of Massachusetts Fisheries and Wildlife, tells us how bats vastly improve the quality of our lives by eating half their weight in insects nightly! We may be dangerously in the dark, so come to the Sawyer Free Library and get enlightened about things like white nose syndrome, a fungal infection that’s killing millions of these underappreciated critters across New England.

Margaret Fuller forum

On Wednesday, Oct. 23, Gloucester UU minister Rev. Jenny Rankin kicks-off a three part series of learning ‘salons’ focusing on the brief but trailblazing life of Margaret Fuller. A 19th century woman with a 21st century mind, Fuller was America’s first female foreign correspondent. A literary critic, writer, champion of women’s education and frontline feminist, she was a transcendentalist and confidant of Emerson, serving as editor on his influential publication, “The Dial.” The series is free, and continues Wednesdays, Oct. 30, and Nov. 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the UU Church, Middle Street. To register, contact Karen Rembert at 978-283-3410 or gloucesteruu@earthlink.net
