SCIENCE PUB AT FAIR HAVEN INN
“Love Your (Snake and Lizard) Neighbors,” with Jim Andrews, herpetologist and developer of Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas. Snakes and lizards lack the charisma of deer or the beauty of birds, and may even inspire fear and loathing. But Jim Andrews preaches the gospel of our fascinating and beautiful local reptiles, whose diversity is highest right here in western Rutland County.
Come join your neighbors for an intelligent, eye-opening discussion. Have a drink, stay for dinner (or not), meet new people, and be part of the devoted Science Pub community. March 3, 4 p.m. at Fair Haven Inn.

CSJ PRESENTS HOLLYWOOD TALES WITH JONATHAN GOLDSMITH
The man who portrays “The Most Interesting Man in the World” has come to the aid of the College of St. Joseph.

Proceeds from the event will benefit CSJ as well as the Congregational Church of Rupert.
Goldsmith will share some of his most interesting and memorable stories from an acting career that spans over fifty years. Goldsmith has appeared in more than 300 television shows including “Charlie’s Angels,” “Knight Rider,” and “MacGyver.” He starred alongside Burt Lancaster in the 1978 drama “Go Tell the Spartans,” which chronicled a unit of American military advisers in Vietnam. But his role in the Dos Equis commercials made him into a cultural icon in what was one of the longest-running and best-received ad campaigns in U.S. history. He is now the face of the new ad campaign for Astral Tequila and recently had a cameo in a new Super Bowl commercial.
