Meet on the lawn of the Central Library for a showing of Back to the Future!  In case you're unfamiliar with the amazing story of Marty McFly, here's a brief synopsis: It's the mid-80's and Marty is your average 17-year-old slacker who happens to be friends with an inventor, Doc Brown.  Doc's latest invention is a time machine that ends up transporting Marty back to 1955.  Now Marty has to make sure that his parents meet and fall in love, or he won't exist when he gets back to his own time!

The movie will start at dusk, but feel free to come early, and bring some chairs or a blanket to sit on, and a picnic dinner or some snacks if you want to.  And moviegoers are encouraged to come in costume - "dress to impress" as your favorite Back to the Future character!  Will you be Marty?  Doc?  Biff?  We can't wait to see!  In case of bad weather this event will have to be cancelled – so keep your fingers crossed for a beautiful evening!

This event is free and all are welcome!

Join us for a free meditation workshop with Dr. Alan Post.

Inside us is an energy that can make us whole, physically, mentally, and spiritually. By learning to meditate accurately, we tap into this energy and heal our physical illnesses, emotional stress, and spiritual isolation--from within.

We seek peace and understanding in our busy lives. For many, there is a deep sense of yearning for greater satisfaction, fulfillment, and enjoyment. You may have heard about meditation, and that it can be helpful for physical health, stress reduction, and peace of mind. It has helped many find purpose in their lives, access creativity, and improve performance. Perhaps you've heard that meditation has aided others in times pain, anxiety, and confusion. This lively and practical workshop is designed to give an introduction into the multi-faceted aspects of meditation.  Dr. Post, contributing author to Meditation as Medication for the Soul, will clarify the many benefits of accurate meditation and will provide every participant a personal, instructed demonstration of meditation.

This workshop is free and all are welcome!
