The book for Tuesday, May 30, at 2 pm is “A Stranger in the Kingdom” by Howard Frank Mosher. Mosher has earned both critical acclaim and a wide readership for his vivid portraits of northern New England residents in fictional Kingdom County, Vermont. A Stranger in the Kingdom tells the unforgettable story of a brutal murder in a small town and the devastating events that follow. The town’s new preacher, a black man, finds himself on trial more for who he is than for what he might have done in this powerful drama of passion, prejudice, and innocence suddenly lost…and perhaps found again.

Meditation for Your Life

with Brian Salmanson on Thursday mornings at 11am. Meditation creates the ability for improving all of our daily challenges.  It has been determined that meditation will have a substantial benefit to people of all ages and their desire to be healthier, more productive, and happier.  Meditation makes you aware that your inner attitude determines your happiness.  Meditation for Your Life is easy to learn and easy to practice.  Meditation happens naturally and is a state of being, no different than being in a state of sleep.  We teach you how to allow this to happen.  We believe that meditation will be beneficial to seniors and we will gear our classes to accomplishing a healthy attitude and spirit for all.  It should be noted that all participants will be sitting on a chair rather than a mat on the floor.  We look forward to meeting you and teaching you about Meditation for Your Life! Please register in advance by stopping into the office or calling       773-1853.
