Dancing Catfish: Poetry Writers Workshop @ Ideation Station
Jul 9 @ 6:30 pm – Aug 13 @ 8:30 pm

“Write a poem — any poem!” At Dancing Catfish we do just that. We know that poems come in all shapes and sizes, all sorts of moods, up and down (and sideways), and we get together for a full evening each week to share what we are doing, and help one another figure out what will make our poems bounce, tap dance and sing (if that’s what they want to do), or change the world (if they can). Under the guidance of prize-winning poet Peter Anderson, we aim to figure out together how to make each poem as strong and effective as it can be. Which is exactly what our poems want us to do.

This is a five-week long, poetry writers workshop held Tuesday evenings from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Workshops are held at Ideation Station led by Dr. Peter Anderson, an award-winning poet. Peter has over twenty years’ experience running writers’ workshops, formal and informal, both in South Africa and the United States.

Dinosaurs and Meteorites: A Flash from the Past @ The Sherman Museum
Jul 10 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Sherman Museum’s annual “Dino Days” is open and T-Rex (Bill) is back!! This year we have expanded our Dinosaur exhibit to include meteorites. Our theme this year is Dinosaurs and Meteorites: A Blast from the Past.

Why include meteorites?
65 million years ago, a major galactic event triggered a massive reaction on earth – a monstrous meteorite (falling star) hit the earth. Possibly, this event led to the demise of the dinosaurs. The search continues to find more clues as to what happened to end their time on the planet. Was it meteorites? What are meteorites? How do we find them? What happened to cause their extinction? Where did it happen?

Two well-known experts — Geoffrey Notkin, CEO Aerolite Meteorites & President of the National Space Society, and John Bennitt, owner Dinosaur Brokers & PaleoBOND, — have loaned their collections to the Museum so the public can understand how space and time touched the earth and changed the future of the dinosaurs forever!

More information about Geoffrey Notkin can be found on his websites: www.geoffnotkin.com and www.aerolite.org. John’s website: www.dinosaurbrokers.com.

The Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday, 10 am – 4pm. Please call 903-893-7623 for more information or buy tickets online at https://theshermanmuseum.org/tickets/
