Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport & Guide to Exploring Connecticut

~Every one of Connecticut's 169 towns has a story shaped by its geography and its people--the first inhabited the state more than 10,000 years ago, the Dutch traders, English settlers, and Africans--enslaved and free--who settled towns as one of the original 13 colonies, and successive waves of immigrants who moved its story forward. It's a small state with amazing variety that makes the 169 Club a fun and rewarding adventure. You'll experience historic town greens and new city centers, revitalized mills sprouting microbreweries and local farms offering local farm-to-table foods, and maritime villages and rural upland communities. Connecticut has it all! This guide, written by town historians and other local boosters, offers the backstory to your discovery of what makes Connecticut so special.

Author Martin Podskoch will present his book.  Copies will be available for sale.

Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life
 
Everyone has pain at some point in life. Some of us deal with chronic pain for years. Pain can be complicated, but there are some simple tools that can help relieve pain. Research shows that understanding how pain works can help us begin to get out of pain. Come learn small steps you can take to reduce and manage pain without drugs or surgery with Maggie Downie, author of Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life.

Once you understand how your body moves and why pain strikes the way it does, you can begin to reverse the pain, get out of the endless pain loop, and get your life back again.
