From January to May, a free monthly Community Dinner and Arts program takes place at the Library Community Room. Learning something new or diving into a creative endeavor in a group makes us healthier. Healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially; healthier as individuals, as families, as a community, and as a town. The data supports this.
At last month’s event, we both listened to and learned to tell stories. This month, we’ll get moving. We are going to learn to line dance to different kinds of music from various traditions. Country line dancing, three-quarter time–there will be something for everyone.
Think you can’t dance? That’s exactly why you should come! A big part of becoming healthier is pushing yourself out of your comfort zone and doing something that you don’t think you can do. If you can walk, you can dance–it’s that simple. But of course you’re also welcome to just watch and dance with your feet under the table.
The Lyons Den is providing dinner. We ask that you bring your own plates, cups, and utensils to reduce waste. During dinner, we sit around tables and talk. To make it easier for folks who find that difficult, there will be conversation starter cards scattered on the tables. Pick a question that sounds interesting and see where the conversation goes. (Anyone can pass on this, however–you won’t be forced to talk.)
The Lyons Community Foundation provided the Wide Spaces Community Initiative funding for these events. Every person who plans to attend is encouraged to invite someone who holds back or is often alone. Tell them you’ll make the reservation, bring their plate and utensils, and pick them up.
