rec_aerobics 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Zumba Class     Tell a Friend
   

Dance party! Are you interested in a fun workout for everybody and every body? Zumba instructor Kelley Brophy will lead this free Zumba class for teens-seniors. 

This is one of three summer classes--join us for one, two or all three! No registration required. 

How Zumba® works: We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

holiday_ghost 6:30 PM The Gravestone Girls--Welcome to the Graveyard!     Tell a Friend
   

Join us for a personalized virtual tour of the cemeteries of Norton! The Gravestone Girls' mission is to "Keep Our Dead Alive!" Brenda Sullivan will present a lecture on cemetery art, history & symbolism in a 90 minute Powerpoint format. The 'virtual tour', called "Welcome to The Graveyard", takes us from colonial burial grounds into 21st century locations, examining the evolution of cemeteries & gravestones. The Girls will photograph the cemeteries of Norton to build the presentation with as much local content as possibleBrenda Sullivan leads the Gravestone Girls with vast experience studying & presenting the folk art history of gravestones. In addition to lectures, Brenda leads tours, teaches gravestone rubbing classes, and has designed a casting technique for creating sculpted art pieces to commemorate this special history. Brenda's work revolves around keeping this rich history alive, preserving local history, and inspiring community service projects. We hope the information given in the program will inspire graveyard clean ups, documentation projects and other fun and educational cemetery experiences as a result of this learning experience.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Norton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and the Friends of the Norton Public Library.

On the heels of the 2016 Presidential Election, Gary Hylander will take us back to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, where the office of the President and the Electoral College were created. As Connecticut Governor Samuel Huntington stated it was a "new event" in human history. Unanimously elected the nation’s first president, Washington was well aware of his unique position: “I walk,” he wrote, “on untrodden ground.” Gary Hylander is a scholar and professor who has taught at Stonehill College and Framingham State University and lectured for many cultural and educational forums including the Norton Institute for Continuing Education (NICE).
