Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. The Toastmasters Education Program is based on a proven curriculum that enables you to develop your communication and leadership skills one step at a time. The program is built on four guiding principles that have been in place since Toastmasters was founded in 1924:
  • Experiential Learning–we learn by doing; by giving speeches and fulfilling leadership roles, we practice and improve
  • Self-paced Program–we learn best at our own pace and comfort level
  • Peer Feedback–through honest and supportive peer evaluation, we grow and improve
  • Mentoring–experienced members encourage, guide and support us in our goals and help us to achieve more than we thought possible

How do taxes fit into your retirement planning? Learn how to reduce the effect taxes can have on your retirement income. Retirement isn’t what it used to be—especially with people living longer and spending more of their lives as retirees. With fewer companies offering pensions, and Social Security facing an uncertain future, the way we fund our retirement is changing, too. And tax rates? While they may be at historic lows now, there’s no telling where they’ll be in the future and how they’ll impact your retirement income. So how can you keep more of the savings you’ve worked a lifetime to enjoy? In this seminar, you’ll learn:

·         Why you should tax diversify your retirement portfolio

·         Where your retirement income may come from

·         What impact taxes can have on your retirement lifestyle

·         How nontraditional options can supplement your retirement income using permanent life insurance, while providing valuable life insurance protection during your working years

Registration is suggested, though walk-ins are welcome. Registration begins on March 22; call 609-799-0462 with questions or to make an appointment.

Our relationships are meant to be a source of joy and comfort, but too often they bring us pain and sorrow. Whether at work or in our personal lives, we encounter adverse relationships.

In this insight session, let’s understand how some of our beliefs about relationships and patterns of connecting with others, entangle and limit us. Through short activities and discussions we will explore practical solutions to help us maintain a peaceful mind and create healthy relationships. It’s time to heal our relationships!

The Hickory Corner Branch is pleased to announce a dynamic art show called Allegories by local artists Joy Sacalis and Susan Winter. The display will run from May 1 through June 27, 2017 during regular library hours. 

A reception will be held from 7 pm to 9 pm at the library on May 4, 2017 to celebrate the new display. All are welcome to attend and browse the display.

Joy and Susan are storytellers through their art, with very different styles. Susan tells stories through touching reality while Joy tells them through abstraction. Their works produce an interesting contrast. Ms. Sacalis states, “I like to paint intuitively, in an exploration of imaginary worlds and ideas” while Ms. Winter “likes to paint reality with abstract qualities, using the freedom of abstraction to express depth.”
