Science in the Summer registration begins at 30 libraries across Montgomery County.  Please visit www.scienceinthesummer.com for dates and times.

Who:
Montgomery County students entering second through sixth grade are invited to register and attend GSK Science in the Summer™, a free, hands-on enrichment program that makes learning about science fun. Sponsored by GSK and administered by The Franklin Institute in partnership with local libraries, the experiment-oriented courses are taught by certified teachers to classes of 16 students in two age groups: children entering second and third grades (Level I), and children entering fourth through sixth grades (Level II).

What:
GSK Science in the Summer™ program will teach Montgomery County students the basics of Oceanography. Through hands-on activities, students will learn about the underwater environment and that it is teeming with life. Young scientists will observe microscopic sea life, such as plankton, using microviewers and magnifying glasses. Students will examine and touch seashells, sponges, corals, sea stars and other animals found in the ocean — even real shark teeth!

Why
GSK Science in the Summer™ opens young minds to the world of science and fosters a life-long appreciation of learning. Now in its 29th year, GSK Science in the Summer™ encourages elementary students to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning through hands-on activities and stimulating coursework. More than 125,000 students from the Greater Philadelphia Area have participated in GSK Science in the Summer since its inception.

Qi Gong with Ernest

Thursdays

12:15 -1:15 p.m. in the Community Room

Cost: $10 donation, payable to Ernest at each class

Qi Gong is a moving form of mediation, coordinating breath with a series of slow, gentle movements. It improves balance and energy, and promotes a sense of well being. When practiced regularly, Qi Gong has been found to strengthen the body's immune system and regenerate the body to sideline symptoms of many ailments, including Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, and MS. It may be practiced in a sitting or standing position.--Ernest

This group is open to all.  No registration required.

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

SPRING SESSION

Fridays: May 29, June 5, 12, 19, and 26

*THERE WILL BE NO TAI-CHI IN JULY*

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

We will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

$8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

Qi Gong is a moving form of mediation, coordinating breath with a series of slow, gentle movements. It improves balance and energy, and promotes a sense of well being. When practiced regularly, Qi Gong has been found to strengthen the body's immune system and regenerate the body to sideline symptoms of many ailments, including Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, and MS. It may be practiced in a sitting or standing position.--Ernest

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

SPRING SESSION

Fridays: May 29, June 5, 12, 19, and 26

*THERE WILL BE NO TAI-CHI IN JULY*

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

We will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

$8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

Why Rain Barrels?

Rain Barrel painted yellow with purple flowersPresented by the Abington Environmental Advisory Council

Learn how you can make a difference. Attend our workshop: Monday, June 8, from 7-8 pm
Registration begins May 18.

You will learn...

Why you need a Rain Barrel

  • You can help the environment by collecting the rain-water from your roof and gutters with a rain barrel.
  • Rain barrels help lessen flooding, pollution and erosion.
  • With less rain-water running-off the land, less pollution will flow into our creeks and rivers.
  • Collecting and using your rain-water can also save you money on your water and sewer bills.

To register for this free program, please call 215-886-9818, register online here, visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org.

Merchant Marine Survivors of World War II: Oral Histories of Cargo Carrying Under Fire, by Michael Gillen, Ph.D.

"Crewed by civilian seamen in peacetime and carrying much of the nation's ocean-borne commerce, the Merchant Marine became the 'fourth arm of defense' in wartime."

Join local author Michael Gillen, Ph.D., for a discussion of his career as a merchant seaman, the important role this group played in the maritime history of the United States, and to honor those who served, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Copies of the book will be available for sale.

A former merchant seaman, Michael Gillen was later a maritime labor reporter, an historic site curator, and a program director and professor of Asian history at Pace University in New York. He also served as director of the project that preserved the Liberty Ship John W. Brown as an operational World War II ship museum in Baltimore. He lives in Lafayette Hill, PA.

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

SPRING SESSION

Fridays: May 29, June 5, 12, 19, and 26

*THERE WILL BE NO TAI-CHI IN JULY*

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

We will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

$8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

Cost: $10 donation, payable to Ernest at each class

Qi Gong is a moving form of mediation, coordinating breath with a series of slow, gentle movements. It improves balance and energy, and promotes a sense of well being. When practiced regularly, Qi Gong has been found to strengthen the body's immune system and regenerate the body to sideline symptoms of many ailments, including Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, and MS. It may be practiced in a sitting or standing position.--Ernest

Qi Gong is a moving form of mediation, coordinating breath with a series of slow, gentle movements. It improves balance and energy, and promotes a sense of well being. When practiced regularly, Qi Gong has been found to strengthen the body's immune system and regenerate the body to sideline symptoms of many ailments, including Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, and MS. It may be practiced in a sitting or standing position.--Ernest

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

SPRING SESSION

Fridays: May 29, June 5, 12, 19, and 26

*THERE WILL BE NO TAI-CHI IN JULY*

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

We will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

$8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.
