Tonight, Nov. 18, from 4 to 6 p.m., join the staff at the Cheshire Public Library, 104 Main St., for a reception to honor Assistant Director Maria Poirier Brandriff. After 36 years of planning and hosting fabulous concerts and other quality adult programs at the Cheshire Library, Maria has decided to retire to spend more time traveling, pursuing her food-related interests and visiting friends and family. Many residents know Maria from the Sunday concert series. Although she did not initiate the series, she rechristened it Sunday Showcase, moved it to a better time slot, gave it more variety, engaged quality acts and increased the attendance from an average of 20 to an average of 100 within the first year.
