---- — KINGSTON — Ever wondered about Hawaiian Hula? Ever wanted to try it? Now’s your chance! Nancy Griffin will lead a free class on Sat., June 22, from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Hula is one of the last remaining narrative cultural dances. It is storytelling through body, hands, and heart, a common communication, celebration, or prayer for all Hawaiians. All ages 6-120 are welcome, male or female; children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Nancy Griffin, Director of Hui `O Aloha Dance Troupe, has been studying, dancing, and exploring the culture and history of Polynesia for over twenty five years. Advance sign up is requested.
Join the Youngsters at Heart Club on Wed., June 12, from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The group is designed for individuals 55+ for coffee, refreshments, and socializing. Come hang out, watch the news, play cards, or board games, or simply just chat.
If you’ve read “Harry Potter” or “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”, then the “Kane Chronicles” by Rick Riordan, is probably the next book series you should read. It’s got magic, ancient Egyptian gods, and adventure! Join Miss Sue on alternate Tuesdays during the Summer Reading Program to dig into the Kane Chronicles! Signup is required! Please do so by June 11 (because we need to order books). Pick up the first book on Tues., June 25.
