Shipwrecks: A Story of Sorrow and Loss - Saturday, July 14th, 1:00 p.m.

We all know the classic story of a terrible shipwreck. The Captain must go down with the ship. Women and children first. All the men must be heroes, except for those cowards who must be shot by stern officers because they attempted to rush to boats over the bodies of the women and children. The Captain must be a superhero, a magnificent seaman, cool, brave, facing death and danger, and a living guarantee that the wreck was nobody’s fault. In an absorbing account, Gillespie tells the story of shipwrecks—their types, their causes, their states of preservation, the salvage attempts, and related legal aspects.  

 Yoga Class Thursdays, July 19th - August 30th, 11:00 a.m.

No previous yoga experience is required. Please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and bring a mat or large towel. Kathleen Shannon is an adjunct professor at Ramapo College and is certified at the 500-hour level in the Krishnamacharya Tradition of yoga.
