Yoga on the beach!

Friends of Sears Island is hosting a yoga program led by Missy Hatch on Wednesday, July 20, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.  Missy will take advantage of the beach environment to explore relaxing movement and stretching. The class is geared for adults and attentive children If you can walk on the beach, you can do it! Missy has been teaching yoga since 1989 and enjoys being outdoors. The program is free to all. What a nice way to start the day!

Painted rock art

If you’re at the Waterfall Arts Market on Friday, July 15, check out the PMM booth! The market opens at 9:30 a.m.

Fresh produce

Nothing better than fresh produce this time of year and I want to mention a new stand over at 174 Old County Road to try. It’s called Angel Wings, where owners Raylene and Ray Rogers replenish goods from their farm every day. Stop by and see what they’ve got!

July 4 recap

What a nice Fourth of July weekend! Thanks to the event committee, the Recreation Department and James Gillway for organizing it. The fireworks were outstanding, the parade was loud and boisterous and the food was great. Best of all, it was a treat to see old friends and neighbors out and about. Those who were a part of the Historic Poker “Walk” around the Elm Street and Water Street neighborhoods, whether a host or a participant, enjoyed the history of our town in a fun way. Winners were Janice Webber with a royal flush, Joe Paul with a straight flush, and Jams Porter with four of a kind.
