Virtual Creative Writing and Core Strength & Balance Continue through May!

Two of our popular collaborations with the Hudson Senior Center continue through May virtually on Zoom.

Creative Writing w/ Maureen McNeil, Thursdays 2:30-4pm. This class, focusing the power of the inner self through the practice of daily writing, has been a touchstone for students during the pandemic crisis and the writing coming out of it shows the depth of thought and feeling in the people attending. Mandy Beckley, Library Assistant, facilitates the Zoom sessions while Maureen McNeil conducts class.

 

Core Strength & Balance w/ Dr. Paul Spector, Saturdays 1:30-2:30pm. This class, featuring exercises that improve postural stability, core strength, spatial body awareness, sensory integration, agility, and coordination, has become an important space for community and healthy connection, breathing, and encouragement.

To register for these classes email programs@hudsonarealibrary.org and you will be sent a Zoom invitation.
