Please look for the new summer program as an insert in the next issue of The Charlotte News.

Note that the Center will be closed on Monday, May 29, in celebration of Memorial Day.

Save the date! Our annual Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, May 27, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. You will find lots of buds, blossoms and bargains! Seedling or plant donations will be accepted at the Center through Friday, May 20. Hope to see you there.

The Birding Expedition scheduled for May 24 has been canceled, but mark your calendars for June 7 at 8:00 a.m. when Hank will treat you to the early birds of summer through his “Oh My God” telescope.

Getting Ready for an Active Summer? Ginger Lambert will help you achieve that goal on Tuesday mornings from 9:15 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Using timed intervals and a series of stations this class will incorporate body weight, light weights and other cardio/strength building tools to boost strength, cardiovascular fitness, agility and flexibility. Joint and ligament issues will be taken into account. Every exercise can be modified for any ability or level of fitness. If you have been looking for a class that challenges you but doesn’t leave you in the dust, then this is for you. Registration necessary. Limit 10. Fee: $10 per class.

The last after luncheon program of the season will be pianist, Annemieke Spoelstra McLane. Originally from the Netherlands and having played throughout Europe winning awards and praise, Annemieka made her way to Vermont in 2004. She takes a break from her current work as pianist for the Handel Society of Dartmouth College to share selections from her new program “Gardentours…Birds and Bees and Flowers and…” with Couperin, Debussy, Grieg, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov and more. Please join us for this special performance Wednesday, May 24, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
