Meditation has become increasingly popular and can provide many life transforming benefits. By learning and practicing a simple yet profound meditation technique, we become relaxed and calm as we come in contact with a state of inner peace and wellbeing. Adding gratitude into our lives along with meditation can create a winning combination. Join Umesh Bhatia, longtime meditator and national speaker, for this transformational virtual workshop. Umesh will guide attendees through a short meditation sitting. When you register for this online program, please include a valid email address. The day before the event, we’ll email a link to join via Zoom on your phone, tablet or computer.

Umesh Bhatia, MS, is an accomplished Franchising and IT entrepreneur. For over 30 years, he has successfully developed franchising and information technology businesses in the USA, the UK, India, China, Japan and the Middle East. He is a longtime meditation practitioner and currently provides workshops and training to groups throughout North America and internationally where he connects meditation and spiritual development to important aspects of our daily lives. He and his wife live in New Jersey and have raised two adult children.

Wednesday, Jul. 20, 6:00 p.m.

Lemuel Parker's beautiful photographs depict scenes of rural life in the Williamson County communities of Bingham and Leiper's Fork during the 1910s. These photos might have been lost forever, but luckily, the glass plate negatives found their way to Rick Warwick. Rick was able to develop them, identify the people in the photographs, and discover the story they told. Please join us on Wednesday, July 20, and enjoy Rick's presentation of Lemuel Parker and his photographs. 

His newest book, Lemuel Parker, Bingham Photographer, will be on sale for $20 a copy, cash or check. 

The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. with book sales and autographs afterward. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but as a courtesy, we would appreciate knowing you're coming.

As summer enters its final months, it's time to think about collecting and saving seeds from your garden. Let's get started by learning what seeds to select for harvesting and how to properly collect, store and save those seeds. You'll also learn about the wonderful Williamson County Public Library's Seed Exchange and how it works. Maybe you'll become a seed saver and donate a few seeds to the Exchange this fall.
