ANNOUNCEMENTS

YOGA RESUMES – NEWCOMERS WELCOME

We meet at 5:30 PM on Tuesdays upstairs in the CEC in the High School/Jr. High Room at the top of the stairs. This is a beginner’s class, but generally all levels can be accommodated. The style of yoga taught is Iyengar, so props are used (blocks, blankets, straps, bolsters, chairs) to make the poses more accessible. Emphasis is also on proper alignment to make the poses safe. We have a few extra mats but prefer that you bring your own. The class is canceled occasionally when there is a conflict on the church calendar. Please feel free to join in. Contact Brenda Lyons, the teacher, with questions.

STAR OF BETHLEHEM COSTUMES

Please note that if you were assigned a role in Star of Bethlehem, your costume needs to be washed and returned to the Church by Christmas. About 20 people did not take their costumes home with them.  The smoked filled costumes to be cleaned are in the hallway on the way to the Heritage Room (formerly Library) in the main building of the Church.  Racks for the cleaned costumes are located in the reception area in both the Church and the CEC. The costume committee thanks everyone for washing and returning the costumes in a timely manner.
