SOLD OUT Drew Mathieson Greenhouse and Manchester Craftsman Guild Lunch Bus Trip

THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT

Join us for a bus trip to the Drew Mathieson Center for Horticultural and Agricultural Technology to tour its amazing facility and spring flower producation.The Drew Mathieson Center for Horticultural and Agricultural Technology  is one of Western Pennsylvania’s premier educational greenhouses. The daily operation and production of specialty crops — including the greenhouse’s signature plant, the Phalaenopsis orchid, hydroponically grown vegetables, and other seasonal crops — not only contributes to our unique combination of education and enterprise but to the diverse learning experiences afforded to our adult career training students.

The students learn in a real “green industry” environment that grows boutique quality Phalaenopsis orchids year-round. They also seasonally produce Poinsettias, Hydrangeas, perennial Hibiscus, and a variety of annuals, ferns, and herbs for wholesale in Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities. Proceeds from these sales support Manchester Bidwell’s programs. http://manchesterbidwell.org/social-enterprise/drew-mathieson-center/

The tour will be lead by Greenhouse Representative, Carol Kenney Martin. Immediately following the tour we will have lunch at the Manchester Craftsman Guild Cafe. Our lunch will be prepared by the exceptional Manchester Craftsman Guild Culinary Arts students.

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

History of Rug Braiding for National Lumpy Rug Day!

According to nationalcalendar.com, National Lumpy Rug Day is observed each year on May 3. Some people view National Lumpy Rug day as a day to appreciate a good, clean rug and incorporate that into spring cleaning (but who wants to clean?). Others enjoy old lumpy rugs and the simple comfort they bring to our homes. And still others want to learn their history and how they are made!  Nationally recognized author and rug braider Christine Manges (Combining Rug Hooking & Braiding: Basics, Borders, and Beyond) will introduce you to this uniquely American art form with a lecture on the history of rug braiding followed by a demonstration of her craft.  Those who would like to learn rug braiding are invited to register for an introductory workshop with Christine (kit provided) on May 17th.

Ikebana Workshop

Join Ikebana artist, Reiko Nakajima to learn the basics of the art of Japanese flower arranging in the Sogetsu School style. Ikebana which translates as the "living flowers" is an ancient art form that dates back to the 7th century. In 1927, when everybody believed practicing Ikebana meant following established forms, Sofu Teshigahara recognized ikebana as a creative art and founded the Sogetsu School. Anyone can enjoy Sogetsu Ikebana anytime, anywhere, using any material. You can place Sogetsu Ikebana at your door, in you living room or on your kitchen table. Sogetsu Ikebana enhances any hotel lobby or banquet room, shop windows and huge public spaces. It will suit any kind of space, Japanese or Western and enrich its atmosphere.

Reiko will be demonstrating Ikebana techniques and attendees will have the opportunity to create their own arrangement. Registration is required.

Reiko Nakajima Born in Tokyo, Japan, Reiko Nakajima began studying Sogetsu School of Ikebana in 1980, and became an instructor of the form in 1984. Shortly thereafter, she immigrated to the United States and started teaching in 1989. She earned the first degree Instructor of Sogetsu School in 1990 and was one of the founders of Pittsburgh Sogetsu Study Group, which was established that same year. From September 1996 to August 1998, she served as president of Ikebana International Pittsburgh Chapter. Currently she is the chairman of Pittsburgh Sogetsu Study Group. In March 2007 and April 2017, she received the “Overseas Honor Award” from the Sogetsu School Head Quarter.

AARP Drivers Safety Class

THIS IS A TWO-DAY CLASS

For Questions about the class, call the instructor, John Spavaro, at 412-531-5690

Space is limited!
$15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers (payable at the first class)

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day, yet some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license.
By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. In addition, you'll learn:

 

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

About the course

The AARP Smart Driver Course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Over 15 million participants have gone through AARP Driver Safety classroom and online courses, taught by more than 4,000 AARP Driver Safety volunteers.

YOU may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course, so consult your insurance agent for details.

AARP membership is not required to take the course and there are no tests to pass.

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
