    down the rabbit hole and can’t believe her eyes: conversations with a caterpillar, races with dodos, and a picnic thrown by a mad court of playing cards turn Alice’s world on its head. Uncertain of her place in this foreign world of shrinking potions and never-ending tea parties, Alice confides in a wise Cheshire Cat, who helps her discover that it’s not where we go in the world, but the things we do there that define us. The program is available for students in 1st – 12th grade. For information about participating in the week-long script development
    program, please contact the Mitchell Opera House.

Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you. Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent. A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served. Space is limited.
