Book Club to Discuss ‘The Immigrant Advantage’

Our Book Club will meet on July 24 to discuss The Immigrant Advantage: What We Can Learn from Newcomers to America about Health, Happiness and Hope by Claudia Kolker. Journalist Kolker investigates the imported traditions and attitudes toward health, hard work, and education that give newcomers an edge over the native-born. Her explorations teach and entertain with their curiosity, can-do spirit, and vibrant bouquet of cultures and customs. For information about location, call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden, 315-633-2817.

Sycamore Hill Gardens Tour May 21

We enjoyed beautiful May flowers at Sycamore Hill Gardens on Sunday, May 21. This is an amazing private family garden located  west of the village of Marcellus. We explored nearly 40 acres of breathtaking views: 500 varieties of trees, 200 varieties of flowering shrubs and perennials, ceremonial bells, and sculptures. Bonnie Shoultz from the Zen Center of Syracuse led a Buddhist meditation and Ann Pia guided a series of Tai Chi Chih movements.

Discussion of Death and Dying Concludes Life Cycle Series

The theme of our April 23 Life Cycles program was “Death and Dying.” We had panelists from Buddhist, Methodist, Quaker, Muslim, and Jewish faith communities who shared their experiences, addressing two questions: how death and dying have affected their life personally and professionally, and the principal thoughts, teachings, and rituals of their community about death and dying.
