Tonight, Friday, June 6, the Roberts Creek Legion features its Friday dinner and live music.

This week Matt Diamond, talented son of renowned children’s songwriter Charlotte Diamond, will sing a variety of popular “grown up” songs from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  Dinner specials are from 4:30 to 8 p.m. There is no cover, and tips greatly appreciated.

Don’t forget the super first Saturday of the month book sale at the Roberts Creek Library this Saturday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Our library is also starting a new venture — a seed library. All you have to do is sign out up to three packets of seeds of your choice, grow them and (if possible) bring back some of the new growth seeds for someone else to grow next year.

This Saturday, June 7 is DJ night at the Legion featuring Deano, Soulstik and Senor Blanco. Starting at 9 p.m. Admission is $6 for members and $12 for guests with members.

An introduction to easy-to-identify wild and weedy plants that do not require complicated cooking methods is this Sunday, June 8 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Easter Egg Farm at 2546 Miles Road.

In this class you will snack on several wild edibles and sip some nutrient-rick and medicinal tea brewed from your finds. Call 604-886-1712 for more details.

Ten years was the last community photo in front of the Roberts Creek Hall.

As it is the Hall’s 80th birthday this year, we will mark the event with another community photo and are calling all Creekers to gather this Sunday, June 8 at 11:30 a.m.

Enjoy your week, and don’t forget to submit your group information or news by Monday at 6 p.m. via email or call me at 604-885-2282.
