Adult Coloring Group
Wednesday, Mar. 27, 10:30-11:30am
Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group!

No passport is needed for this trip, where we speed off to Peru and Ecuador! With Suanne Williams-Lindgren as our guide, we will visit Machu Piccchu and see what Hiram Bingham revealed to the world, and learn a bit about Inca architecture and what amazing builders and stewards of the land they were. We will visit a local weaver high in the Andes, see what a special dinner looks like in Urumbambsa (guinea pig, anyone?), and take a boat ride to the Galapagos. While there, we'll learn a bit about the Darwin Center and visit islands where sea lions abound, and frigatebirds are striving to attract a mate. Suanne will pull back the curtain and help our armchair travelers sense the true richness of these fascinating areas.

Note: this event was originally scheduled for March 18 and rescheduled to April 1.
