The Spring 2012 edition of the Friends of the Falmouth Public Newsletter is out! This is great news, except for the fact that the date of the Annual Meeting on the Front Page is incorrect. The correct date is Saturday, April 21st at 11:00 AM. And this is one Annual Meeting you won’t want to miss! Laurie Heineman is returning with her program Playing with Shakespeare. Come be a player of Shakespeare. Join the Magic! All Fun! No Stress! No Experience Necessary! For kids of all ages! Great for families! Laurie Heineman is an Emmy Award winning actress, and experienced Shakespearean, who loves to have fun. She will introduce, explain, and lead the Friends in a role playing version of Hamlet!
