Tips and Tricks for Tidying Up Your HomeFree Presentation
Monday, December 5th from 7-8:30 p.m. Have you had it with clutter? Do you walk into your home and feel overwhelmed by all your stuff? This crash course will introduce participants to the KonMari Method, a revolutionary approach to de cluttering from the bestselling book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Learn the six basic principles of tidying up and the benefits to doing so and watch a live demonstration on how to fold clothes in a way that transforms dresser drawers. Afterwards there will be time for questions from the audience. Taught by Adaena Tray, a “Konvert” who has decluttered her house from top to bottom and helped others to simplify their lives too, the class will run about 1.5 hours and is open to all adults.

Viewing Pleasure-The Film Club
Join us on December 17th at 5:15 PM for a pizza dinner and screening of Florence Foster Jenkins.
Florence (Meryl Streep) dreams of becoming a great opera singer. Unfortunately, her ambition far exceeds her talent. The voice Florence hears in her head is beautiful, but to everyone else it is quite lousy.
Her husband, played with charm and great care by Hugh Grant, goes to extreme lengths to make sure his wife never finds out how awful she truly is. When Florence announces her plans for a concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair soon realizes that he’s facing his greatest challenge yet!
