This past Saturday Ginette Despatie, an entertainer and harpist, put on a free show in the children’s section of the local library. Ginette played the harp and helped with the narration of a French story for children entitled “Stella Veut Des Ailes.”
Accompanying Ginette was a stilt walker who entertained and helped narrate the story. He came out after stilt walking to juggle various objects while moving the story along. Children and parents alike clapped after each of his mini performances.
On Dec. 12 at 11 a.m. there will be another event entitled “400 Ans d’Opera” (400 Years of Opera). It is billed as being for the whole family. If you look up the Municipal Library of Cowansville and click on events, you can then register for any of the free upcoming activities.
It is good to see the library open again, and it is well-attended and a hub for the community.
