Week of November 16th-20th, 2015

More local programming on a TV near you!

November is flying by fast. Upcoming events near you include the Beaver Moon Gathering at  the Great Falls Discovery Center on Nov. 21st (noon-3pm) and the annual Thanksgiving football game between Turners Falls High School and Greenfield High School on Nov. 23rd at 10:30 am. Hosted by the Nolumbeka Project, the Beaver Moon Gathering is named in honor of the full moon on the 25th which traditionally marked the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Doors open at 11:30. It will feature a half-hour of "Giving Thanks," an hour in which Billy "lahteho:tas" Myers of the Kanien' ke'ha (Mohawk) Bear Clan will speak about the challenges faced by American Indians in the 21st Century, and a period for discussion and a reflection. Raffle drawing & refreshments, suggested donation of $2-5.
