From Good to Great: Poetry Techniques

NISA’s writer-in-residence, Natalie Morrill, is leading a 6-week poetry class on Wednesdays from 1:00-2:30 p.m. beginning January 6, 2016. Writers who have been writing for pleasure (or pain!) and who are ready to take their writing to a new level can join the class to learn more about poetic devices and how they are used to make poetry great. Missed a few classes but want to join this class? Join next Wednesday at 1pm!

Quilting & Mitt-Making Blitz!

Calling all Quilters! We need your help to make as many quilts as possible for our annual donation to a street outreach program in the winter. NISA will be holding a Quilting Blitz in our Warm Hearts / Warm Bodies program from December 7th to the 10th. Members are welcome to come any time from 8:30am-4pm to cut squares and assemble the quilts and help spread the warmth in our community. And, on the 11th, we'll have a special mitt-making blitz.

Dynamic Minds Programming

We've increased our active living programming, including YMCA groups, to help reduce the low energies that we sometimes feel associated with the colder weather and darker skies of the winter months. Remember, for all the dynamic minds classes you attend each month, your name will be entered into a draw to win some great prizes!

Creative Wellness Month Events

November is creative wellness month at NISA, and we have a great schedule of programs to get your imaginations flowing and to bring your artistic energies to life. Check it out!
