THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 
Love measures our stature: the more we love, the bigger we are. There is no smaller package in all the world than that of a man all wrapped up in himself. - 
William Sloane Coffin
 
TAI CHI RESUMES TODAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 4:30 PM
Come experience the slow, relaxing movements of the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi Chuan. Often called Meditation in Motion, this mind/body exercise is both relaxing and energizing. The Harvard Medical School cites over 170 randomized controlled research studies that show practicing Tai Chi can improve overall health while increasing strength, balance, and flexibility. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. For more information, contact Bob Wells wellscom @comcast.net
 
FALL IS STILL FOOD-TRUCK SEASON... It's popular with members, neighbors and friends on hectic school nights. Get out of the kitchen between 5 and 8 p.m. the fourth Thursday of the month (September 24 and October 22) to grab a bite from our selection of vendors and spend some social time.
