May Classics Book Club

Join us May 28th at 2:00 p.m. when we discuss The Transit of Venus by Shirley Hazzard

The Transit of Venus follows Caroline and Grace Bell as they leave Australia to begin a new life in post-war England. From Sydney to London, New York, and Stockholm, and from the 1950s to the 1980s, the two sisters experience seduction and abandonment, marriage and widowhood, love and betrayal. With exquisite, breathtaking prose, Australian novelist Shirley Hazzard tells the story of the displacements and absurdities of modern life. The result is at once an intricately plotted Greek tragedy, a sweeping family saga, and a desperate love story.

Bellevue Memorial Day Service

On June 6, 1944, Allied troops landed along the beaches of Normandy.  Over 150,000 soldiers arrived by land, sea, and air and helped reclaim the Western front turning the tide of World War II.  On May 27, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. please join Bellevue Mayor Val Pennington and former Mayor Paul Cusick in Bayne Park as we commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day and honor all Veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice.
