Wednesdays, Aug. 9 and 16 (10 a.m.) Kindergarten Readiness – Ages 5-6: Entering kindergarten in a few weeks?

Tuesdays, Aug. 8 and 29 (7 p.m.) It's All About You – This three-part series led by Nicholette Leanza will empower participants to live more fully as they take control over their mental and emotional health and wellbeing. Topics will include letting go of emotional baggage, mastering your anxiety, dealing with emotional vampires, overcoming depression, maintaining happy relationships and rewiring your brain for a new you.
Saturday, Aug. 12 (1 p.m.) Blackout Poetry – Calling all poets! Armed with just a Sharpie and your own creative instincts, find hidden meaning and create new works of art with blackout poetry. Combining poetry, art and recycling, blackout poetry is created by blacking out a body of existing text, leaving only a few select words. When only these words are visible, a brand new story is created.
