Monday evenings from 7-8 p.m.

March 16 - Fragrance in the Garden: The Nose Knows with Mary McKnight-Seltzer.

Enjoy sweet scents as you relax in your yard, and feel your mood lift. Dr. Mary McKnight-Seltzer will use PowerPoint slides to provide tips and tricks on how to incorporate scented plants into your existing garden or perhaps into a new garden bed. The presentation includes a question and answer session.

March 30 - Introduction to the World of Orchids with Leslie Smith.

Leslie Morris-Smith takes us around the world on a tour of the fascinating world of orchids. Leslie is a Penn State Master Gardener volunteer educator on orchids, a graduate of the Barnes Horticultural Program at the Barnes Arboretum, and a member of the Greater Philadelphia Orchid Society. She enjoys sharing what she has learned with other orchid growers. Bring your problem orchid to the lecture with any cultivation questions.

April 6 - Square Foot Gardening in Raised Beds with Wayne Brunt.

“Learn how to grow 100% of your harvest, in 20% of the space, using 10% of the water, 5% of the seeds, do 2% of the work, and have 0% of the weeds! 
No kidding!

April 20 - Rain Gardens for Everyone with Leslie Bass.

“Rain Gardens, a simple yet intentional gardening practice to manage rainwater on any property, will be explained with the residential home owner in mind. Learn about the concept and the process of creating your own rain garden this year. Plan to improve environmental quality, support beneficial wildlife, and beautify your property at the same time.”

September 28 - Planting Bulbs in the Fall for Spring Blooms, A Lesson in Patience with Betsy Nutt.

Learn how to plant bulbs in the fall so your garden becomes alive with colorful flowers in the spring. Find out exactly what is a bulb. Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.


Registration begins on Feb. 23. Sign up for the entire series or register for each program separately. Please call 215-886-9818, go online here, visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org to register.

April 1865 – The Civil War’s Last Month
Today everybody knows that the Civil War ended in April 1865, but the people who were living it did not.  For them April was filled with drama. This course will cover the war’s dramatic closing events: the break-through attack of the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg, the Confederate evacuation of Richmond, the Appomattox Campaign, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, the surrender of Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and the events surrounding the assassination of the President Abraham Lincoln followed by the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. 

A retired public school teacher from Pottstown, Pa., Michael T. Snyder has written more than one hundred feature articles on local history for the Pottstown Mercury. He is currently the president of the Pottstown Historical Society and has lectured at many of the area’s historical societies. His book Pottstown Remembered was published by the History Press in April 2010. Snyder, who also has a keen interest in Civil War history, teaches courses on the subject at Montgomery County Community College and has also appeared as a speaker at Civil War Round Tables throughout the country.

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

NEW 6 WEEK SPRING SESSION

BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 13

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. 

In this 6 week session, 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.

Class dates are Friday – March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17

$30 for entire session paid at first class - $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.

misc_lincoln 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM April 1865 - The Civil War's Last Month Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

April 1865 – The Civil War’s Last Month
Today everybody knows that the Civil War ended in April 1865, but the people who were living it did not.  For them April was filled with drama. This course will cover the war’s dramatic closing events: the break-through attack of the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg, the Confederate evacuation of Richmond, the Appomattox Campaign, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, the surrender of Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and the events surrounding the assassination of the President Abraham Lincoln followed by the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. 

A retired public school teacher from Pottstown, Pa., Michael T. Snyder has written more than one hundred feature articles on local history for the Pottstown Mercury. He is currently the president of the Pottstown Historical Society and has lectured at many of the area’s historical societies. His book Pottstown Remembered was published by the History Press in April 2010. Snyder, who also has a keen interest in Civil War history, teaches courses on the subject at Montgomery County Community College and has also appeared as a speaker at Civil War Round Tables throughout the country.

April 9 - Creating 3-D space on a 2-D sheet of paper - Using size, overlapping, 1- and 2-point perspective to create the illusion of depth in drawing

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

NEW 6 WEEK SPRING SESSION

BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 13

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. 

In this 6 week session, 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.

Class dates are Friday – March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17

$30 for entire session paid at first class - $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.

misc_lincoln 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM April 1865 - The Civil War's Last Month Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

April 1865 – The Civil War’s Last Month
Today everybody knows that the Civil War ended in April 1865, but the people who were living it did not.  For them April was filled with drama. This course will cover the war’s dramatic closing events: the break-through attack of the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg, the Confederate evacuation of Richmond, the Appomattox Campaign, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, the surrender of Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and the events surrounding the assassination of the President Abraham Lincoln followed by the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. 

A retired public school teacher from Pottstown, Pa., Michael T. Snyder has written more than one hundred feature articles on local history for the Pottstown Mercury. He is currently the president of the Pottstown Historical Society and has lectured at many of the area’s historical societies. His book Pottstown Remembered was published by the History Press in April 2010. Snyder, who also has a keen interest in Civil War history, teaches courses on the subject at Montgomery County Community College and has also appeared as a speaker at Civil War Round Tables throughout the country.

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

NEW 6 WEEK SPRING SESSION

BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 13

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. 

In this 6 week session, 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.

Class dates are Friday – March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17

$30 for entire session paid at first class - $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.

Master Gardener Programs

 

Vegetable Garden Design IdeasJoin us for a series of Master Gardener Programs at the Roslyn Branch Library.

Monday evenings from 7-8 p.m.

March 16 - Fragrance in the Garden: The Nose Knows with Mary McKnight-Seltzer.

Enjoy sweet scents as you relax in your yard, and feel your mood lift. Dr. Mary McKnight-Seltzer will use PowerPoint slides to provide tips and tricks on how to incorporate scented plants into your existing garden or perhaps into a new garden bed. The presentation includes a question and answer session.

March 30 - Introduction to the World of Orchids with Leslie Smith.

Leslie Morris-Smith takes us around the world on a tour of the fascinating world of orchids. Leslie is a Penn State Master Gardener volunteer educator on orchids, a graduate of the Barnes Horticultural Program at the Barnes Arboretum, and a member of the Greater Philadelphia Orchid Society. She enjoys sharing what she has learned with other orchid growers. Bring your problem orchid to the lecture with any cultivation questions.

April 6 - Square Foot Gardening in Raised Beds with Wayne Brunt.

“Learn how to grow 100% of your harvest, in 20% of the space, using 10% of the water, 5% of the seeds, do 2% of the work, and have 0% of the weeds! 
No kidding!

April 20 - Rain Gardens for Everyone with Leslie Bass.

“Rain Gardens, a simple yet intentional gardening practice to manage rainwater on any property, will be explained with the residential home owner in mind. Learn about the concept and the process of creating your own rain garden this year. Plan to improve environmental quality, support beneficial wildlife, and beautify your property at the same time.”

September 28 - Planting Bulbs in the Fall for Spring Blooms, A Lesson in Patience with Betsy Nutt.

Learn how to plant bulbs in the fall so your garden becomes alive with colorful flowers in the spring. Find out exactly what is a bulb. Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.


Registration begins on Feb. 23. Sign up for the entire series or register for each program separately. Please call 215-886-9818, go online here, visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org to register.

April 1865 – The Civil War’s Last Month
Today everybody knows that the Civil War ended in April 1865, but the people who were living it did not.  For them April was filled with drama. This course will cover the war’s dramatic closing events: the break-through attack of the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg, the Confederate evacuation of Richmond, the Appomattox Campaign, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, the surrender of Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and the events surrounding the assassination of the President Abraham Lincoln followed by the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. 

A retired public school teacher from Pottstown, Pa., Michael T. Snyder has written more than one hundred feature articles on local history for the Pottstown Mercury. He is currently the president of the Pottstown Historical Society and has lectured at many of the area’s historical societies. His book Pottstown Remembered was published by the History Press in April 2010. Snyder, who also has a keen interest in Civil War history, teaches courses on the subject at Montgomery County Community College and has also appeared as a speaker at Civil War Round Tables throughout the country.

Registration: $60.00 (covers 6 sessions)    Payable to : Pottstown Regional Public Library
