Snakes are probably some of the most feared, hated and misunderstood animals around. Some people even believe that, “the only good snake is a dead one!” Snakes actually play an important role in our backyards, so to help correct some myths and misconceptions, the McCormick Library will offer a free program about snakes on Thursday, April 13th at 6:30 pm.
Attendees will learn how snakes contribute to our environment, about common snakes found in South Carolina, how to distinguish between venomous and harmless snakes and about general snake safety tips. The program will be conducted by Carol Mavity, a local master gardener who was once a city girl (Indianapolis), but now enjoys frogs in her pond, bluebirds in her birdhouses and, most of all, snakes in her yard.
On Thursday, March 16th at 6:30 pm at the McCormick County Library, local author Jim Willis will talk about his new book: Ancient Gods: Lost Histories, Hidden Truths, and the Conspiracy of Silence. Mr. Willis is a retired minister, musician and college professor who has written eight books dealing with religion and spirituality. His new book asks the questions, “Where do we come from? What are the origins of modern civilization? Do the world’s pyramids, the Nazca Lines, Easter Island statues, and other enigmatic structures, archaeological wonders, and geographic anomalies contain evidence of ancient gods?”
The program is free and all are welcome to attend. A book signing and refreshments will follow.
