227051 - Forest Bathing (Shinrin-Yoku)
Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is the experience
of immersing oneself in the sensory gifts
of nature. This can be done in a forest setting,
but also in gardens and parks. The benefits are
not only a greater sense of well-being, but a
boost in immune function and ready access
to lower stress hormones and boosts in serotonin
levels. This is not your regular walk in the
park, but a series of invitations using the senses
to rediscover your inner child and your connection
with the natural world. Being relaxed,
revitalized, and better equipped to handle the
stresses of daily living are the goals of this forest
bathing walk. Instructor Christy Thomson is
a life-long resident of northeast IN. She is the
only certified forest therapy guide in Indiana
and is thrilled to share this opportunity with
the Fort Wayne community. Registration deadlines:

that only you can share. Let author Linda Wade

Rag rug making is just one of many “forgotten
skills of self-sufficiency” used by pioneers on

They are a great way to use fabric scraps and, as
the pioneers can attest, they make great rugs.

pairs of worn out jeans. For the Rag Rug you will
need to bring old clothes, sheets or long scraps
of fabric. If you have a portable sewing machine,

Why give up your comfortable chair when a new

242903 - Chair Seat Caning
It is very common for a cane chair to start losing
its caning long before the frame itself begins
to deteriorate. If you have a chair that's in good
shape structurally, you can replace the cane
yourself and return the chair to its former glory.
Painting or varnishing the frame should be done
in advance, if needed, and your chair must be
stripped of cane and have holes around the seat
area. We'll provide the cane and the instruction
necessary to complete your chair seat by the
end of the 5 week class. (Please note: This class
overlaps with the Chair Recovery class for an
hour.) A supply list will be provided when you
register and can also be found on our website
at www.fortwayneparks.org. Instructor Larry
Brooks has been reupholstering furniture for

at Water Tower Place where we will gather at
the Mity Nice Grill to enjoy American dishes,
served family style for lunch (included). Then
it's a short ride to the Private Bank Theatre in
Chicago's “Loop” for a matinee performance of
“Hamilton,” the story of founding father Alexander
Hamilton told on stage like you’ve never
seen before. Combining a historically accurate
plot with hip-hop and R&B songs, the Hamilton
musical has fast become one of the most innovative
productions ever to hit the theater world.
Inspired by the 2004 book “Alexander Hamilton”
by Ron Chernow, the musical recounts the
story of Hamilton’s life beginning as a child and
all the way through to the tragic end. Among the
historical figures appearing in supporting roles
are Hamilton’s wife, Eliza Schuyler Hamilton,
Aaron Burr, George Washington, James Madison,
King George III and more.
