Bigfoot, UFO presentation coming to Vandergrift library

Mary Ann Thomas
The Vandergrift Public Library will host a Bigfoot and UFO presentation 11 a.m., March 30, 2019.

Bigfoot, UFOs and other strange occurrences in the region?

You betcha, according to Stan Gordon, author and paranormal investigator, who will speak for a free presentation at 11 a.m., March 30 at the Vandergrift Public Library.

Although Gordon’s presentation isn’t typical library fare, it’s a “spine-tingling program” that is interesting and a good way to bring adults into the library, according to Vanessa Groholski, library director.

Groholski declined to make a ruling on whether Gordon’s presentation was fiction or non-fiction. But she said, “We would love to see more adults and want to bring in a variety of programs.”

The library does offer book discussions for adults, which can be lacking in attendance, she added.

Gordon makes appearances at a number of venues discussing his research on Bigfoot, UFOs and other strange occurrences.

Gordon will cover the alleged 1965 UFO crash-landing near Kecksburg, Pa., the massive wave of UFO and Bigfoot activity in 1973, low level UFO encounters, mini-UFOs, and strange creature reports, according to the library.

He will also provide an update on more recent strange encounters from 2017-2019.

Seating is limited so those interested in attending should call to register: 724-568-2212.

The library is located at 128 Washington Ave. in Vandergrift.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
