Please inform library staff of any allergies your child(ren) might have. Registration is limited and required. The class is for children ages five and up, with caregivers. Please dress for messes or bring an apron or smock.
  3. Learn about the Power of Silence at the Orchard House (17 Orchard St.) from 7 - 9 p.m. Silence is the absence of unnecessary distractions, not just noise. It allows the Inner Voice to come through to our awareness, bringing insights, healing, and focus to our lives. The purpose of this four-week course is to introduce participants to silence in a planned manner, to provide a safe environment in which to grow and share the experience, and to explore the greater implications of it. Participants will be following a program during the week. Classes are open to all, and cost is $80 payable upon arrival. Please contact janis Dadonna by phone (203-242-6755) or e-mail (jan@­janisda­ddona.­com) to register.
