An Evening with Mike Herz

  With an uncanny ability to turn a phrase and pen lyrics that rattle around in your head, Mike Herz has been gaining fans and recognition around the country for several years. He’s been an Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and a Showcase Finalist at the prestigious Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO.  He has released three albums, the latest being "The Acrobat" in 2017.  An aspiring poet long before picking up a guitar, Herz quickly made the transition to songwriting and hit the ground running.  Flash forward years and many miles later and Mike feels most comfortable on stage in front of complete strangers.  He continues to build a grassroots following around the nation the old fashioned way: one new believer at a time.

Mysteries revealed ~ Book Illustration: Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys

Jim McNamara got hooked on Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys when he tuned in to The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries on TV in the late 1970s. Soon after, he was reading the books on which the popular series was based and became more captivated.

In 1985, he became intrigued with the cover illustrations and started researching the artists and collecting the original artwork. Today, McNamara owns nearly 4,000 Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books, from the 1920s to now and written in several languages. He also collects memorabilia and cover artwork from each decade, dating back to the 1950s. McNamara now shares his collection with the public. 

His latest endeavor is "Book Illustration: Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys," an exhibit of original cover art from both series. Come enjoy this unique, nostalgic art show. The exhibit will run through June 8th.

Meditation Group

“Meditation” covers a variety of practices that designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy, and develop compassion. Benefits of meditation include calming and clarity of the mind, and decreased anxiety, stress, anger, fear, jealousy, and destructive thoughts. Over time, meditation can help us to better relate with others and become more empathetic in all situations.

Come and have a cup of tea to learn more, then try it for a few weeks and decide for yourself.
