The Harry Potter Hogwarts Academy Training is a fully-interactive program that prepares participants to become wizards themselves! Professor Jungle-Flick teaches children how to perform their own magic, play some Quidditch and even learn Defense Against the Dark Arts! Over a dozen volunteers participate in this performance, and the whole show is a lot of fun. Get your camera ready, because you’ll be catching some great shots of participants laughing, smiling and having the best time of their lives!

Craftsman Exploration – Thursday
Thursday evenings 5 to 7 pm.
This group will explore the arts and the crafts through peer teaching. Many people have unfinished projects at home and materials which need to be dusted off and used again. These will be drop in workshops. Observers are welcome. You can even bring another activity, like knitting, to do while interacting with the group, but participants are responsible for supplies. When possible, tools will be provided and shared, depending on the activity and the number of participants.
Cook Book Club – Are you interested? When shall we meet?
The Paige has a good collection of cookbooks. Let’s explore them and kitchen test the recipes. Come help us develop this group which will meet at the Paige … participants will choose when to meet and what the topics will be. Each session might have a theme. We may plan an ethnic meal or perhaps try cookie recipes. Should we compile a cookbook?
Sharing with others in groups reduces anxiety, improves self-esteem, and helps members’ sense of overall well-being. Where else can you accomplish that, enjoy the company of some very interesting people, and learn something new?
