We are asking for each contestant to make 2 gallons of chili. Staff will supply you with 3 pounds of cooked ground beef to use in your recipe. You will be responsible for the other ingredients. There will be a sign up in the free binder to enter the contest and to sign up for your kitchen time. To attend this event buy your $5 ticket at the front desk in advance. In addition to tasting 8 different chili recipes there will also be bread, beer, wine, sodas and desserts served. Avon will be doing a fundraiser all day Friday, November 15. It’s a great time to do some holiday shopping and support the center.
Veteran’s Day Events
Veteran’s Day Breakfast ***open to all - Wednesday, November 6 anytime from 8:30 - 9:30 am.
Breakfast is being prepared and served by Ed Konig, Council Vice President and his team of volunteers. He will be making creamed chipped beef. Come anytime during the hour. Pay in advance at the front desk. This breakfast is just $2 for non vets and free for veterans. It is open to all members.
TED Talk - Wednesday, November 6 at 9:30 am (following the breakfast)
Join Jim Lightner for this TED talk and a lively discussion afterwards. We Train Soldiers for War. Let’s Train Them to Come Home Too - Before soldiers are sent into combat, they're trained on how to function in an immensely dangerous environment. But they also need training on how to return from the
battlefield to civilian life, says psychologist Hector Garcia. Applying the same principles used to prepare soldiers for war, Garcia is helping veterans suffering from PTSD get their lives back.
Veteran’s Day Luncheon - Tuesday, November 12 at 12:45 pm. Join us for lunch with music by Bruce Thomas honoring our Veterans. On the menu: hero sandwiches, Yankee Doodle soup and dessert from Canella’s. $6 advance tickets required. This event is free for Veterans but they still need to sign up at the desk and let us know what branch of service. Sponsored by The Cottages of Perry Hall.

The Feldenkrais Method®
Coming to Seven Oaks!
A 3 week session will be held on Thursdays, November 7, 14 & 21 from 12:50-1:50 pm. Cost is $5 for the 3 week session.
The Feldendrais Method is a somatic educational system, teaches people to learn how to move the body out of pain, improve balance, posture and increase flexibility. This movement based system explores easy, slow, gentle, non habitual movement patterns combined with focused
attention. Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons facilitate the development of new neurological pathways that expand the options for easier, more functional movement in daily life. Join Marika Hicks, certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®, for a 50 minutes Introduction Workshop. Students need to be able to get up and down from the floor. Chairs will be available to help you. Bring a mat, a large towel and a large pillow. Additional
mini-sessions will be offered throughout the new year.
Join us every Friday from 9:30-10:30 am and enjoy a cup of coffee and a baked goodie. Mingle with new and long time members and get to know each other a little better. See Betsy Eisbart if you're interested in being a hostess.
