Book GroupBook lovers, join us for our Wednesday Night Book Group, a.k.a. Page Turners. We discuss a wide range of titles: a combination of the newest, popular, lesser-known, and everything in between. All are welcome, whether you've read the book or not. This month's read is Hidden Figures : The American Dream And the Untold Story Of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Take your mind to another place and find peace, happiness, and bliss. This local meditation group in the Conifer/Bailey/Evergreen area is open to anyone interested in meditating regularly in a group setting. No previous meditation experience is required. We don't focus on a particular meditation format, but instead sample a variety of methods as different group members lead a 20-30 minute group meditation at each gathering. Please bring a cushion, mat or pillow if you don't want to sit on a chair. Anyone present can start the session and awaken the group at the end
