For children ages 18-months- to 3-years-old: Join us for one of three identical sessions to learn about the parts of a flower and what different kinds look like. Learn about why they're important for wildlife. Then we'll take a nature walk, complete a craft to take home, and read a story.
Class is held outdoors, weather permitting, and is limited to 15 children.
Registration opens on the first Monday of the month: May 2, at 9 a.m.
What brings a poem from a first-person narrative, to what has been termed Confessional poetry? Looking at poems by groundbreaking poets Sylvia Plath, Ann Sexton, and Ai, we will explore how these women poets broke through barriers of sex and language, how they shaped their work, and, using their examples, we will break through our own boundaries. A packet will be sent to participants before the workshop, with poems from each of the poets and background information of their eras, along with suggestions for our own writing. Each participant will write 3 poems, inspired by each of these Confessional poets, and poems by participants will be read carefully and discussed.
Recreational dancing to recorded music from various countries and cultures. Dances are taught as needed so that all can participate. No partner or experience is necessary. Dress casual, wear comfortable shoes (no high heels, no metal on shoe soles or heels). Masks are currently mandatory for dancers. Masks are optional for visitors (non dancers). The mask mandate is self imposed and may change as the dancers decide.

Derek LaBranch and Bereavement Coordinator Barbara Duffield of Christus VNA Hospice. Together, we’ll cover:
• The physical, emotional, spiritual and social implications of grief
• The process of grief
• Memories and how to use them to heal
• How to take care of ourselves while we grieve
• Holidays and anniversary dates
• Planning for the future

Everyone will receive the newest edition of The Caregiver HelpBook, 292 pages filled with insights and resources on all sorts of topics we caregivers encounter every day.
It's so important to take better care of ourselves – especially if we're responsible for taking care of others.

• Reduce stress
• Improve self-confidence

• Communicate better
• Make tough decisions
• Reduce anger, anxiety and depression
