ADULT PROGRAMS WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS

**********
MONDAY 
JOBSEEKER BUDDY GROUP
Theresa Howe, Tom Neel, Ed Yee, 9:30-11am, Library

The jobseeker buddy group is a support group for people that are looking for a new job or to transition into a different job. We typically go around the room and review the activities from the prior week, provide support and ideas for what could be done in our respective job searches, provide each other with referrals, tips, resume critiques, etc. It is a great way to keep the momentum up during a job search and relate to others in a similar situation.

MEDITATION
James Hencke, 8-9 p.m., Classroom #5

In meditation practice, we allow ourselves to dwell in the present moment. We find that by developing our awareness and compassion we can open ourselves, relax into situations, and enjoy our life!
