You being prepared could make all the difference to your pet in this situation. The goals of the cat and dog first aid presentation are to teach participants how to be prepared for emergencies that involve a cat or dog and how to protect themselves and the animal from further harm, injury or suffering during the emergencies by teaching prompt, effective first aid actions and care.

Building Great Stories

This class is divided into two parts.  Part one consists of three sessions devoted to Plot.  In sessions one through three students will discuss the plot elements that make up Acts I, II, & III: scenes, themes, the hook, introduction of protagonist, antagonist, and other characters, the protagonist’s goal, problem, story question, and the first act turning point or climax.  In session two, students will discuss escalation of emotion, tension, and conflict, obstacles and complications confronting the hero.  Action and suspense bring our story to its midpoint where the protagonist learns of a surprise or twist in the story.  We’ll also see our hero to his or her lowest point, and ends with the second climax or turning point.  In session three, students discuss raising escalation and stakes for the hero, a second twist or revelation, leading to the final climax between hero and villain, denouement, and resolution.  Part two of the course consists of three sessions devoted to a study of characters through three acts.  In session four students will discuss how to create characters: their traits, flaws, and psychological trauma.  Session five will focus on character webs, character arcs (change) through three acts for the protagonist, antagonist, and any romantic interest.  In session six students will discuss building character sympathy, creating characters your readers have to root for.  The instructor invites you to begin the journey.  The students should bring writing utensils and a notebook to class. 

Morris Gibely will be in instructor.  The class will begin Tuesday, February 24th and will run for 6 weeks from 6:00 - 7:30 pm.  The class will be held at the New Suncook School.  The fee is $39.00.

Full Body Workout with Stability/Fitness Ball and Stretch Bands

When you combine the stability fitness ball with resistance bands for exercising, you will target major muscle groups for effective toning, strengthening, and flexibility. At the same time, you’ll be improving your posture, balance and coordination, all the while zeroing in on your core, the power center of the body where all movement originates.  Working out on the ball also helps you to strengthen those small, intricate muscles in the lower abdomen and pelvic girdle, important for flattening and firming your tummy.  Exclusive to this program, easy to follow review exercise print-outs are available at each class session.  With additional mini home workouts on the ball, you’ll be amazed how your energy heightens, and overall fitness and well being tops the scale.  Students should bring their own stability ball (see size chart below), and a full-body floor mat. A yoga style mat is fine. 

Norma King will be the instructor.  The class will begin on Saturday, March 28th and will run for 6 weeks from 9:00 - 10:00 am.  The class will be held at the New Suncook School.  The fee is $39.00. 

Ball sizes:      

Your Height    Ball Size Diameter

4’11”  -  5’ 4”        21” – 22”

5’5”    -  5’11”       25” – 26”

6’  and up            29” – 30”

It is best that the ball inflation be so that you can sit on the ball with your feet on the floor and knees bent at 90 degrees.  It is also best to wear light weight secure sneakers with non slip soles while exercising on the ball.

Forgiveness Class

Forgiveness, what is it?  If I forgive someone does that mean I condone what they’ve done?  Do forgiveness and forgetting always go together?  What is forgiveness anyway?  These may be some of the questions that you find yourself asking.  We will spend our time together seeking the answers to these questions and more while also learning about the true capacity for forgiveness and the benefits associated with it.  Please bring a journal/notebook and something to write with.

Joy Clark, MA Peace and Reconciliation Studies will be the instructor.  The class will begin on Wednesday, March 4th and will run for 3 weeks from 6:00 - 7:30 pm.  The class will be held at the Molly Ockett Middle School.  The fee is $29.00.  

eBook Readers for Beginners      Please note the 5 different sessions below.

Student Intervention and Reintegration Program (SIRP)

STUDENT INTERVENTION AND REINTEGRATION PROGRAM (SIRP)

SIRP is an educational, risk-reduction program for high school aged youth who have had experiences with tobacco, alcohol or drugs, and who may not qualify for treatment.  The primary goal of SIRP is to reduce or eliminate use of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs and associated problems, such as absenteeism, car crashes, fights, risky sexual behaviors, and health problems.  SIRP is based on the Prime for Life evidence-based curriculum, which focuses on reducing students’ resistance and increasing awareness of their use, while educating them on alcohol and drug use.  Students must be referred to the program for participation, which may come from any concerned individual, including parents, school staff and/or administrators, law enforcement, courts, or the youth themselves.  Classes are held for 12 hours over the course of 3 days, with an accompanying parent meeting held during the first hour of day one of classes.  Classes are free and students are provided with all course materials.

To obtain a referral form, please contact: Heather Drake, Substance Abuse Prevention Program Coordinator, The Opportunity Alliance; 207-553-5836 or heather.drake@opportunityalliance.org

Classes are scheduled for the following dates, from 3:00-7:00 pm daily:

 January 20th, 21st, 22nd

 March 17th, 18th, 19th

 May 19th, 20th, 21st
