Coming Up at Lapham Center
Registration for the summer classes is continuing at Lapham Center and will continue until all classes are filled. Anyone with questions about any of the programs described below should call 203-594-3620 for more information.
Among the summer programs being offered is a new program featuring TED Talks on Thursdays at 10:30 beginning June 6. These talks, which film notable speakers talking on one topic for a maximum of 18 minutes, have been viewed over a billion times as of November 2012. Past presenters include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Bill Gates and others who address global issues, design, entertainment, health history, education, science, business and more. We'll show three of the best talks each week, "riveting talks by remarkable people". There is no fee and all are welcome.
Jemetta Hunt will teach the first of two Balance classes on nine Mondays at 1:35 p.m. beginning June 3. She will show students exercises which improve strength, flexibility and joint range-of-motion. Students will also learn the causes of balance problems and have a chance to practice balance challenges in a safe and comfortable environment.
While the Supervised Bridge Play class taught by Judie Jacobson is filled and on wait list, her Review of the Basics class, offered on six Wednesdays at 12:30 beginning June 19, still has space. This is a class for those who have a basic knowledge of bridge and want to improve their game. It's also a good class for those who played years ago and need to get current with bidding and review basic play of the hand principles.
There have been issues in obtaining both tomorrow's, May 24 Free Friday Film at 1 p.m. and the Wednesday, May 29 film at the same time. Please call to find out what will be shown.
