Drop-In Groups

  • Coloring Group. Dianne Richardson. Fridays, 1:30-3pm. Adult coloring is a relaxing and fun activity for calming one’s mind. It also enhances listening by keeping the creative part of the brain busy while leaving the language part of the brain free. By focusing on mindful coloring your thoughts become uncluttered, allowing more valuable thoughts to emerge. How can coloring brighten your life? Join and find out! A variety of materials will be provided for free, but you can also bring your own.
  • Crafters Group. Joan Barrett. Wednesdays 12-2. Group meets to sew and craft together for good causes. Bring your own projects too!
