Ron Kolek  is the Emmy-winning founder and lead investigator of the New England Ghost Project.

At the Kick-Off Meeting, Susan Kirby from SLS Fitness will introduce you to the benfits of developing a walking practice, including tips on form, safety and motivation.

Find out why you should walk but NOT diet to lose weight. Why is walking the easiest and most beneficial conditioning and weight loss option?  How much walking do you need to do to notice a difference?  Questions will be answered about proper footwear, etc.  We will program our Step Counters, ...and there will be time for Q&A!

Each Wednesday evening in May and June at 6pm, we will gather at the Library and walk to the paths at Veteran's Park to begin our practice.  (May 15; 22; 29 and June 5;12;19 and 26.)  Commit to one kick-off meeting and seven short evening walks and see if a walking group is right for you!  Make some new friends, enjoy the spring weather.  You'll be amazed at how quickly change occurs!  All adults are welcome.

Sponsored by The Friends of The Dracut Library, The Dracut Recreation Department and SLS Fitness.

NOTE:  Registration for the Kick-Off Program secures your place in our Wednesday evening walks through June.  No other registration is required!

At first, it looks like an accident, but when the body of eighteen-year-old Daniel Gingerich is found inside--burned alive--Kate suspects murder. Who would want a well-liked, hardworking young Amish man dead?"

Children entering grades 1-5 are invited to learn the art of "Spool Knitting".  Everyone will make a bracelet first.  After that they can make other things like a necklace or a snake.
