If you play the Ukulele, are learning, or are just curious what the international Uke phenomenon is all about, join us for our twice-monthly meet-up at the Waterville Public Library.
Our group is informal, we learn from each other and enjoy strumming and singing all kinds of music.
Coaching is available and there are instruments to try if you don't have your own.
We use a common songbook, but continue to glean songs from other sources. We use the songbook preferred by many other Uke groups in Maine and elsewhere: "The Daily Uke, 365 Songs for Better Living" by Liz and Jim Beloff.
The Library has copies has of both Liz and Jim's books to check out: http://minerva.maine.edu/search~S41?/abeloff/abeloff/1%2C2%2C5%2CB/exact&FF=abeloff+liz&1%2C2%2C The book is also available for sale locally at Downhome Music in Fairfield http://downhomemusicshop.com/db/index.php Bull Moose http://www.bullmoose.com/ Or, through the authors' website http://www.dailyukulele.com/ or various online retailers.

On Thursday, March 22nd at 3:00 pm, The Grand projects on the Coastal Eye Care Screen a live, high-definition simulcast of the NT Live presentation of Shakespeare's classic tale of political treachery and justice in Ancient Rome “Julius Caesar”, staged at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas. Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake. Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $15 for Adults & Seniors, $12 for Grand Members & Military, $10 for Students (College) and $7 for Youth (12&under). For more information on this or other Grand events, please call the box office at 207-667-9500 or visit The Grand website at www.grandonline.org or follow us on Facebook.

The Grand presents a weekend of two of the best of the recent PG-rated films all playing on the Coastal Eye Care Screen beginning on Thursday, March 22nd at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 24th at 11:00am with the hit film adapted from one of this past year's Young Adult best-sellers “Wonder!” Based on the New York Times bestseller, the film tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. At the Thursday and Saturday screenings, there'll be copies of the book “Wonder” on sale in the lobby from Blue Hill Books. With Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin and Sonia Braga. (2017. US 1hr, 53min. Directed by Stephen Chbosky. PG.)

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures.
