Grover Cleveland by Henry F. Graff

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

    Contact: Stacy Schuttler   9785971714   sschuttler@cwmars.org
   

How did two fifties-era Iowan housewives, who performed songs by the Andrews Sisters and were married on the same day, become two of the most influential advice columnists of all time? "Ann and Abby", a live 3-person comedy, examines how chutzpah, hard work and a bit of luck propelled the twins into becoming two of the most beloved and respected women of the 20th century. 

Image result for ann and abby landers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With humor, snappy one-lines and a whole lot of love, Abby and Ann will dole out advice to the audience on the proper way to hang toilet paper, how to stop your husband from wearing a Tarzan suit and how not to be a lovelorn teen. The twins will also provide insights into how they, as children of immigrant parents, remained the world's most popular advisers for over 50 years. Discussion with the audience will follow the performance.

An edutainment production, the show will feature Lynne Moulton, Fran Baron and Joseph Zamparelli.

    Contact: Stacy Schuttler   9785971714   sschuttler@cwmars.org
   

The ABCs of DNA

DNA testing has become increasingly popular among genealogists, yet many people don’t really understand what to do with their test results or how to use them to verify and extend their family trees. After a brief overview of the different kinds of DNA tests available (autosomal, mitochondrial, y-DNA) and their applications in research, Julie will focus on autosomal DNA testing. She'll help you understand your ethnicity estimates and why they might vary from what you expect, suggest resources for evaluating and analyzing your DNA matches, and demonstrate the use of chromosome browsers, GEDmatch, and DNA Painter.

Presented by: Julie Roberts Szczepankiewicz is a genealogist, writer, and speaker with 20 years of experience in researching her family's origins in Poland, Germany, the U.S. and Canada. Her passion for genealogical research started when she was a graduate student, after she was given a copy of her great-grandparents' marriage record as a gift. After reading the names of a previously unknown generation of ancestors on that document, she was hooked. She currently volunteers as administrator and regular contributor to a number of genealogy-related Facebook groups, and serves on the board of directors for the Polish Genealogical Society of Massachusetts. Her articles have been published in the journals of the Polish Genealogical Society of America and the Polish Genealogical Society of Massachusetts, and she is also the author of a genealogy blog, From Shepherds and Shoemakers. Julie currently resides in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, with her husband and their youngest daughter.

What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Instructor: Jeff Cote. Cost: $5.00 per session. Just drop in.

Join our walking group, with planned routes and optional circuit training.  We'll walk outside when weather permits, and the indoor route is available in inclement weather or for those who prefer it.  Canes and walkers welcome!  No charge, drop in.
