As the Sachem community still tries to move forward from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, everyone can use a little respite. The past week and a half of long gas lines, crashing ATMs, power outages and cooped up children can take its toll on the mind. Why not get away from the phone calls to LIPA or the insurance company and enjoy some free events being offered in the area?
Here's a short list of some free events for the whole family to enjoy
Foreign Film: The White Ribbon
This afternoon at 2 p.m., the Sachem Public Library will be screening the foreign film "The White Ribbon" in Community Room A. This German film captures a village just prior to the outbreak of WWI. "Strange events, accidents, and deaths are occurring. After the schoolteacher starts to unravel the mystery, he discovers that the children of the town may be guilty of the crimes and have formed a secret society led by local pastor's daughter," according to the library's description. The film stars Christian Friedel, Leonie Benesch and Ulrich Tukur. German with English subtitles.
Long Island Blues Masters
On Sunday, November 11 at 2 p.m. head over to the Sachem Public Library again for renowned blues musicians Tommy Keys, MOTU and Ken "The Rocket" Korb in Community Room A & B. "These three Long Island Blues Masters will share the stage to perform the classics and discuss the rich history and technique of this uniquely American musical genre," the event description states.
