Best Bets for Tuesday, Nov. 19

Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

The North Shore Community Development Coalition will hold a forum on the growth of poverty in America and how communities on the North Shore are responding to the growing crisis this morning at the Salem Five Community Room, 210 Essex St., Salem. Elizabeth Kneebone of the Brookings Institute and author of “Confronting Suburban Poverty in America,” will offer a national perspective. Metropolitan Area Planning Council’s findings on the changing geography of poverty in Metro Boston offer a regional perspective, and local antipoverty leaders will discuss their perspective and local strategies being implemented. This free forum is scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. Reserve your spot at jackie@northshorecdc.org.

Guest artist Ruth Mowder, president of the Peabody Art Association, will present an oil painting demonstration at 6:30 p.m. at the Middleton Senior Center, 38 Maple St., Middleton. Attendees may paint along and should bring a 5-by-7 or 8-by-10 inch canvas or canvas board. Acrylics can also be used. The demonstration is free and hosted by the Middleton Arts Association. Refreshments will be served and the center is handicapped-accessible. Call Beverley with questions at 978-740-3212.

Learn how to decorate naturally for the holidays with master gardener Betty Sanders. She'll create five arrangements primarily using materials that grow in the yard, showing you how to bring a little bit of your garden inside for the holiday season. Each arrangement is done for one holiday, including Thanksgiving, and after a few changes, made suitable for the next holiday and beyond. Attendees will have a chance to win one of Sanders' creations. "Holiday Arrangements From the Yard" begins at 7 p.m. at Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, 14 Union St., Hamilton, and is funded by the Friends of the Library. For more information, visit the library's website.
