Back-to-School Organizing Skills
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Whether you have one child or a dozen, family life is busy and we are inundated with schedules and activities and stuff. Lots of stuff. This is the perfect time to learn how to corral the chaos!

Children need books (of course!); toys and games; baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer, and hockey gear; musical instruments; school supplies and paperwork; and clothing for all four seasons. 

Why should you get it all organized? Because if you do, then you spend less time looking for things and more time enjoying those activities...and studies show that order creates peace and harmony. The added bonus is that children will learn how to be organized, too!

Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and teachers will want to attend!

Fifty Years After: 1969 in Song and History
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

 

Motown, Sunshine, Gospel, County, Soul, Rock, Blues, Movie Soundtrack songs and more were all part of the mix of popular music in the pre-digital olden days of 1969.  Nixon, Vietnam, the space race, cold war, men on the moon, the Beatles' final live concert, and Woodstock were among the events of the year.  We are very pleased to welcome back Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle, who will present their arrangements of songs that were on the pop charts or presented at Woodstock in 1969.  They also discuss some of the major events of a year that was historically and culturally very rich.  

Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle develop and present a series of theme-based music and history programs.  They present songs that give cultural insight into interesting times, places and events in American History.  Rick and Dawn carefully craft their vocals and accompanient to sound as true to a song's era or style as possible.  Their vast repertoire includes music from the Colonil era to the present day.  Rick and Dawn use these songs to illustrate the evolution of our nation's culture and history in an informative and entertaining way.
