TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Friday at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

ONE EXTRA CLASS on Friday 6/3
$5.00

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So, come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

Olympic Journeys: Rowing for Gold

 

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James BrownTuesday, June 14, 7-8 p.m.
Shorday Room, Abington Free Library

A discussion about Olympic rowing for teens and adults with speakers

The Boys in the Boat

The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the forthcoming PBS documentary “Boys of ‘36”

For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.

It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler.

The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest. This book is the 2016 selection for One Book, One Montgomery County (montcolibraries.org).

Joanne Iverson

Joanne started rowing in 1959. When she aspired to row in the Olympics, she quickly learned that there were no rowing events for women. Why? Because the governing body for rowing in the United States viewed it as a man’s sport and they would not sanction U.S. women to compete in international competitions. 

When the International Olympic Committee considered the addition of women’s rowing to the Olympic program, the various countries were asked if they would send a women’s rowing team. The response from the U.S. governing body for rowing had always been “No” because the men thought that women not only could not, but should not row.

Joanne set out to change their minds, co-founding the National Women’s Rowing Association and introducing women’s rowing into the Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976, where she was a member of the initial United States Women’s Olympic Rowing Committee. She managed the first Olympic women’s rowing team, bringing home silver and bronze medals.

Joanne is the President of the Vesper Boat Club and is inducted into the National Rowing Hall of Fame.

Diane Burke

Diane Burke, daughter of Olympic bronze medalist in men’s single sculls, Daniel H. Barrow Jr., will bring memorabilia from her father’s visit to the 1936 Olympic competition in Berlin.

Daniel Barrow began his rowing career at West Catholic High School where the 8 oared crew won the first Stotesbury Cup, the world’s oldest and one of the largest high school rowing competitions.

He then rowed for Penn Athletic Club where his eight man team, dubbed the “Big Eight” by Philadelphia sportscasters, was the first American crew to win the World Championship in Liege, Belgium, in 1930. That Penn Athletic Club crew won 31 consecutive victories between 1929 and 1931, including the US and Canadian championships in 1931.

In 1933, Dan Barrow switched to sculling and won the 1934 and 1935 national titles in the doubles. His singles championships came in 1936, and qualified him for his Olympic appearance in Berlin where he won the bronze medal.

Hey teens,

Come out to the library to watch Race, starring Stephan James as Jesse Owens. Enjoy some popcorn and drinks as well.

Here is a short synopsis about the film:

Based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. "Race" is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man's fight to become an Olympic legend.

Race is rated PG-13 for thematic elements and language.

All attendees will receive a raffle ticket for the Teen Summer Reading Program.

Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring this program.

          *Social-emotional (cooperation, self-confidence, initiative)
          *Physical development (eye-hand coordination, hand manipulation)
          *Mathematics (shape, classification, order, size, space)

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

July Session

7/1, 7/8, 7/15, and 7/22 (no class 7/29)

$20 for the session/ or $8 per class drop-in

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com
