When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners - and boy are they square! For the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth. 

As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down.  When Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.

The Sanderson Centre and the James Hillier Foundation present An Evening With Dr. Jane Goodall

Thu Sep 27 7:00 PM

Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot in what is now known as Gombe Stream National Park in 1960 when she launched her pioneering research with wild chimpanzees. She was only 26 years old. Her research project was unlike any other and has taught us so much about our closest cousins in the animal kingdom. In 1977, Jane founded the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues to support the research at Gombe.  In 1991, after meeting with a group of Tanzanian teenagers to discuss community problems, Jane created Roots & Shoots.  This program is dedicated to inspiring and supporting young people to take action for sustainable communities. Roots & Shoots groups are active in nearly 100 countries with approximately 150,000 youth participating.
