October 2018 Events at Moore Free Library

Newfane’s Moore Free Library and Newbrook Elementary School are partnering with the Vermont Department of Libraries and Rooted in Vermont, a grassroots campaign celebrating how all Vermonters enjoy local food, to explore all of the great food that Vermonters can find right in their backyard. Moore Free Library will be hosting two events as part of this program. On Wednesday, October 3rd, the public can have lunch with the students at Newbrook Elementary, prepared by Chef Chris Parker. Learn about the school’s award-winning Farm to School Table project, and participate in a reading together program with the kids. You don’t have to be related to anyone at Newbrook to participate, but if you are, the times are 11:55 seating for grades K – 3 and 12:15 for grades 4-6.Suggested donation of $3.75 per adult.

Then on Thursday, October 4th, at 6:00 PM Chef Chris Parker and Kate Venne from School Food Connects will be presenting a program on their award-winning Farm to School Table program at the Moore Free Library. Food tasting will be involved with ingredients from Dutton’s Farm as well as from Amazing Planet, a farm run by descendants of Robert Crowell, one of Moore Free Library’s chief benefactors.

Breathing—your most important daily activity simply happens, without much forethought. So why do you need a book about how to breathe? Come and hear what the author, Betsy Thomason, has to say about breathing on Thursday, October 25th at 6:00 PM at the Moore Free Library, 23 West Street, in Newfane.

Perhaps you’re tired and seeking more energy. Or maybe you’re looking for relief from stress, anxiety, or pain; or even looking for a way to prevent stress, anxiety, or pain?

Respiratory Therapist Betsy Thomason introduces the world to the BreatheOutDynamic system (BODs) with three powerful words—Just Breathe Out. Nothing mystifying or beyond your reach. BODs, the amazingly effective breathing practice developed by Olympic cycling coach Ian Jackson, focuses on the powerful and relaxing outbreath, a tidbit of ancient yoga wisdom seldom remembered or used. In this how-to book, Betsy explains everything clearly in lay terms so you, the reader, can easily experience the benefits of BODs. You’ll discover how your very own outbreath can maximize your ability to create a new, healthier you..
