And if you don’t like the idea, you can take a hike!

Matinee in the Cafe!
1:15 PM

Stop by the Second Chapter Cafe and join other adults to watch a different film each week!  No registration required.

This week's selection is Youth in Oregon.  When 79-year-old curmudgeon Raymond (Frank Langella) makes arrangements to be euthanized in Oregon, his family refuses to accept his decision. But when another family emergency arises, Raymond's daughter turns to her husband, Brian (Billy Crudup), for a little help. So Brian reluctantly volunteers to drive the cantankerous Raymond and his wine-loving wife Estelle (Mary Kay Place) three thousand miles to Oregon. Determined to change the old man's mind before they reach the Beaver State, it becomes quickly apparent to Brian that convincing your father-in-law to keep living when he's ready to check out is no simple task.

Run time: 99 minutes

Kits offer free admissions to the sites as well as educational background information and information on other things to do in the area. There are even games and music for the car trip, all in one handy tote bag.

This week's selection is Table 19.  Ex-maid of honor Eloise --having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text-- decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend's wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the 'random' table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets. As everyone's secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. Friendships - and even a little romance - can happen under the most unlikely circumstances.

Side Walks with Brandon
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

You don’t have to run a marathon to be healthy. Sometimes all you want is a short stroll “on the side” – a side walk!

Join the library for a two-mile jaunt along the streets of Whitehall.

We’ll stay stress-free while thinking about all of the calories we’re burning and the heads we’re turning!

And if you don’t like the idea, you can take a hike!

Water and snacks will be provided.

 

Bio: Brandon has been a walker almost his entire life. He walks to and from his car every day.

Matinee in the Cafe!
1:15 PM

Stop by the Second Chapter Cafe and join other adults to watch a different film each week!  No registration required.

This week's selection is The Last Word.  Shirley MacLaine is Harriet Lauler, a once successful businesswoman in tight control of every aspect of her life. As she reflects upon her accomplishments, she's suddenly inspired to engage a young local writer, Anne Sherman (Amanda Seyfried), to pen her life's story. When the initial result doesn't meet Harriet's high expectations, she sets out to reshape the way she is remembered, with Anne dragged along as an unwilling accomplice. As the journey unfolds, the two women develop a unique bond which alters not only Harriet's legacy, but also Anne's future.

Run time: 107 minutes

Extracting Health from Nature: A Talk About Essential Oils
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes, essential oils are now found in everything ranging from aromatherapy and household cleaning products to personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments.

The particles in essential oils come from distilling the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels.

Jen Wittkopp is trained in French Aromatherapy and will teach you how to incorporate therapeutic grade essential oils into your and your family’s routine. Topics will include: essential oil history, safety, uses for children and pets, aromatic use, internal use, and even cooking! You needn’t be an aromatherapist to use essential oils in your home.

Discover the root causes of newfound health!
