Nick Lund from Maine Audubon Society returns to talk about winter feeding of birds: what you might need as a feeder and food and what you might plant to feed birds in the winter. Nick was a crowd pleaser in 2018 when he spoke to us about bird houses and attracting birds to our yards. His presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.
You do not need to be a member of the Garden Club to attend. All are welcome.

Senior Tech meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
We’re here to help in any way we can with your tech questions. We work together as a group to answer similar questions, and break out into smaller groups to answer individual questions.
If you have a question, we will help you find an answer. You wouldn’t believe some of the things we’ve been able to help solve!

Please join us for our new discussion group. While aging is familiar to us, the concept of “Eldering” may be new. Our Eldering group is a place to talk, to share, or to just listen to what neighbors, friends, and members of our community have to say about their experiences as we grow older. The group has already come up with a great list of resources.
This month we’ll talk about unexpected moments in your life. You can choose to share, or just come listen.
This group meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 1:00-2:30. All are welcome. We hope you’ll join us for a great conversation!

No prior experience is needed for this experience of gentle, mindful movement and deep breathing to calm the nervous system and focus the mind. Led by yoga expert Martha Williams, you’ll stretch and move while sitting in your chair with a handful of standing and balancing postures accessible to all. We’ll finish with a guided body scan that invites you to relax into the present moment, that place where true power lies.
Yoga offers many benefits, including lower blood pressure, greater strength and flexibility, improved balance, and a calmer mind. You’ll learn why yoga is more than the physical postures you see in pictures and commercials, and how you can incorporate it into your life in a way that works for you. Chair yoga can be practiced at any age. No prior experience, mats, or towels are needed. Just wear comfortable clothing, sneakers or flat shoes, and bring water to drink.
When you tap into this ancient practice you’ll learn many ways to find a more peaceful, powerful you.
