Author presents program
Peters Township Public Library will host Bethel Park native Walter Meyer via Zoom at 7 p.m. May 10 as he shares anecdotes and photos from his latest book, “If You Weren’t Here, This Would Not Be Happening.”
Written one story at a time on Facebook during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the book is a collection of dozens of humorous, tragic, and touching anecdotes from the author’s weird life. From his family’s relationship to the Pittsburgh Pirates, connections to the Battle of Gettysburg, stories of growing up in the South Hills, celebrity encounters (including fellow Pittsburgher Shirley Jones) to other odd jobs including working in Hollywood, all stories celebrate the underlying theme that life is an adventure if you choose to live it as one.
A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. Learn more at www.waltergmeyer.com.
Registration is required at http://tiny.cc/WalterMeyer. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Giant Oaks plant sale
The Giant Oaks Garden Club will sponsor its 20th annual plant sale and garden market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 15, rain or shine, at the Peters Township Public Library.
The plant sale will feature a large variety of quality potted perennial plants selected from members’ gardens. Also featured are herbs, annuals, hanging baskets and raffle baskets of gardening items.
Club members, many of whom are master gardeners, will provide assistance and answer individual gardening questions from the public.
This year, the sale features a twist to the annual flea market. Members will be cleaning out their sheds and garages to sell all things related to gardening for a garden market. You can expect gardening hand tools, shovels, rakes, hoses, planters and more.
