Make a note on your calendar: Tuesday, April 20, at 7 p.m. at the Delmar Public Library, actor and teacher Joe Plummer will impersonate the great Victorian novelist Charles Dickens on his reading tour of America. He will bring some of Dickens’ most popular characters to life, including Scrooge, Oliver Twist and Mr. Micawber. He will read the scene containing the sensational murder of Nancy at the hands of Bill Sikes — the very scene Dickens’ physician begged him not to perform. This program is suitable for young adults and adults. It’s free to the public.

Happy birthday greetings to: Eleanor VanMeter, April 1; Vernon Collins, April 2; James L. Hearn III, Jim Brittingham and Ashley Carmine, April 4; Conner Alan Niblett and Philip Lee Cooper, April 5; Elizabeth Pegelow Messick and Elsie Jerman, April 6; Ross Smith, April 8; Anne Calloway, April 9; and Diane Litchford, April 11.
