This week at the Community Center!

The big news this week is that we got a much better coffee maker, so our coffee is super-delicious now! Hurray! And we have a display of art from the students of the Owl’s Nest, a local family preschool and childcare center. Come and take a look! It’ll be here for the whole of April, Month of the Young Child in Vermont.

Saturday we’ll have morning meditation at 7.45am. The Center will be open for our usual Saturday morning coffee, scones and chatting between 9 am and 12. This week our food will be a rather good graham cracker carrot cake with a cheesecake swirl, and chocolate chip-orange scones. We’ve also got a lentil-vegetable soup and homemade bread.

The Church will have their Easter Sunrise Service on Sunday at 6.30am, with a potluck breakfast afterwards. All are welcome to attend. The library will not be open on Sunday.

Monday we’ll be open 9 – 5pm, as usual. As well as Lauren’s Matzoh Ball Soup, we’ll also have brisket, as a Passover special. Celebrate Democracy will be meeting at 6.30pm, all political views are welcome to come and join in the discussion.

On Tuesday, Strong Living will be meeting at 4pm, then the first in a new series of classes from Kate. Relax, Balance, then Move! is a stretching and strength-building class focussing on muscle equilibrium. See our website for more details! $10 a class. 5 – 6pm.

The Film Club will be meeting at 7pm on Tuesday to show ‘Into the Wild’ from 2007. IMDB says “After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.”

Wednesday we’re open 12 – 5pm. Craft Night will be meeting in the library from 6.30 – 8pm. At 7pm, Marlboro Cares hosts an evening of short presentations ‘Getting Your Ducks in a Row; Planning for Life after 60’. A guide to estate planning; a short film by Andy Reichsman and a talk about how to create an advanced healthcare directive, with help to create your own!

Thursday we have Strong Living at 4pm, Tai Ji at 5pm and Yoga at 6.25pm.

Friday morning we’ll have Morning Yoga at 6.30am, and the Center will be open 12 – 5pm.

Save the date for Saturday, April 27. Jamie Schilling, local artist and teacher will be running an art workshop for children based around recycled materials. “Young participants and their grown-ups can play with basic printmaking techniques using materials that might otherwise end up in the trash or recycling bin. Explore line, form, texture, and color. Roll paint onto bubble wrap, turn bottle caps into stamps, cut up cereal boxes to make shapes. We will be using use non-toxic, washable paint. Please bring a willingness to get a little messy. This art-making opportunity will be drop-in with ongoing assistance and instruction. Aimed at ages 2 -5, older siblings are welcome too!”
