FEATURED SONGS AT PRESENT EVENT :: TBA
Music is the international language, and every culture every people uses music to share its story. Folk music, in particular, unites us not only across cultures, but it also tells us something about our own culture --- how people think, interact and live in the village or the city, in the new world or the old. And the only thing better than listening to music is making music.

Join us as we share American cultural heritage by singing American folk songs together. It’s a fun way to learn the language and understand the culture. We’ll have music available, but if you have a song you’d like to sing or learn – bring it and we’ll sing it together. If you play an instrument, bring that too, and we’ll enjoy the accompaniment.

Environmentalism and the advancement of environmental issues can often seem intangible and out of reach for the general public. What can we, as individuals do to protect our environment? Is there more to civil action than deplugging our chargers and washing the dishes with cold water? These questions are illuminated in Daniel Goleman's book titled Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything which will serve as the focus point of our discussion. The unique insights offered by this book will help us explore a more accessible area of life -- shopping -- where ordinary people can do a lot to help our environment.usic is the international language, and every culture every people uses music to share its story.
