Sun. Nov. 10 ~ Dan Tinen ~ "Sharpening the Saw" Sometimes we're so busy doing things, fulfilling our purpose, that we neglect doing the things that make us truly effective and keep us healthy. You may be very busy cutting wood, but if you don't take time out to take care of the saw, you'll have poor results in the long term. We'll share some personal maintenance tips this morning.
Fri. Nov. 15 ~ 6-8pm Jewelry Party! ~ Bernardston Women's Group and Meetinghouse Artists are hosting a jewelry party for our friend and colleague Mary Jo Hauri. MJ's one of a kind jewelry makes a perfect gift. Bring a finger food for the party and get a special purchase coupon. RSVP email@example.com.
