Calling all Croakers! We are once again sponsoring an adult summer reading club and it’s not too late to sign up. This is relatively painless. You read what you want and circle activities on a grid. No meetings! For every 5 grid activities you receive a ticket which can be spent on chances to win prizes. On August 10th we will have a Potluck Picnic at 6 PM and award the prizes.

Here are some of the fantastic prizes I’ve received so far:

Heinz History Center – 4 free admissions
Erie Maritime Museum – 2 passes
Oil Creek and Titusville Railroad – 2 rail passes
Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh – One-time admit 4 pass
Campbell Pottery – Vase
Pittsburgh Playhouse – 2 tickets

Join our new group, OFF STAGE: Drama Exercises for Fun, Focus, and Relaxation. This group starts January 11 at 6:30 and will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays through the end of March. Our instructor will be Beth Wilcox, retired CHS Speech and Drama teacher. These informal sessions are designed for students age 16 and up and adults of all ages. Some of the activities planned include body and voice warm-ups, improvisational skits, and various drama games. These activities help participants improve focus and concentration, control nervousness in front of an audience, and learn to work with a partner or in teams. Another objective is to provide some mid-winter fun and entertainment
