Meditation Workshop with David Newcomb

Wednesday, June 17, 2015, 7 p.m.

We live in a fast paced world, filled with challenges and constant demands made on our precious time. Wouldn't it be nice if we could step back, take a little vacation from all the tension and find a place filled with joy, bliss and peace? When we learn how to meditate, we find such a place within our very selves. The practice of meditation contributes to a more positive, healthy lifestyle. It helps people reduce stress, gain a deeper sense of fulfillment in life as well as foster greater physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Classic Cinema Night

Thursday, June 18, 2015, 7 p.m.

In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, we will screen a film directed by one of Hollywood's first openly lesbian filmmakers, Dorothy Arzner. Arzner's Christopher Strong (1933) is the story of Lady Cynthia Darrington (Katharine Hepburn), an aviatrix who has historically put her career ahead of romantic pursuits. When she least expects to, she falls in love with family man Christopher Strong (Colin Clive), much to the chagrin of his wife Elaine (Billie Burke) and daugher Monica (Helen Chandler). But the Strong family has illicit secrets of their own.
