Hopkinton Celebrate yoga

Eagle NamasDay is an annual national event hosted by Team RWB to help connect veterans to their community through yoga. Our yogi will take us through some basic yoga poses that will help illustrate the physical and therapeutic benefits of yoga, which can be done almost anywhere with no special equipment. She will also integrate some of the poses with balance assistance using aerial silks, which she specializes in. So grab your yoga mat, thick beach towel, quilt, whatever and join us for a morning session of mind clearing muscle stretching fun and comaraderie. This event will be held at the Hopkinton Town Library, 61 Houston Drive, on Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. to noon, and will be led by Marcia Shell. Marcia specializes in warriorsatease.org, this is geared toward newcomers and beginners. It is specialized for veterans suffering from PTSD.

Wilmot Reducing waste at home

Elizabeth Harper, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Natural Sciences at New England College, chair of the Wilmot Conservation Commission, and member of the Wilmot Waste Reduction Committee, will share strategies to reduce waste at home. This presentation will take place at 7 p.m. on Feb. 20, as part of the Wilmot Public Library Lecture Series. As the amount of waste that we generate has increased, costs for recycling and waste disposal have also increased, presenting challenges for towns who are trying to balance their budgets. We can all make small changes to our daily habits that will reduce waste, cost less and benefit the environment. Please join us for a discussion of creative solutions. Come with ideas and suggestions. This program, being held in the library at 11 N. Wilmot Road and is free and open to the public. More information at wilmotlibrary.org or 526-6804.
