Piggy-backing on the success of the fall session of the Lunch for the Mind series, the Civic Engagement Education Team is hard at work to bring you exciting, new topics for the new year.   Note that the winter/spring series will start at a new time of 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm.   Please register by calling 860-844-5352.  The cost is $5.  Bring your brown bag lunch to class (beverage and dessert provided).  Except for Feb., the ongoing classes will be held on the second Wed. of the month.  Save these dates:  March 12, April 9, May 14 and June 11.

The first in the series will be held on Wed., Feb. 19 with Matt Ryan, Granby’s own cartoonist, who will look at “Life Through the Eyes of a Cartoonist”.  Matt gives an inside look at his cartoonist lifestyle and invites us to draw along with him!  He will teach working lines and simple shapes, creating the foundation of character design, form, gesture, expression and a couple sneaky “tricks” he’s learned along the way.

Program topics and information for the rest of the series are March 12 – “Lunch with Dylan Thomas” –  Glyn Dowden reprises his popular one man performance as Dylan Thomas, one of the most prominent and lauded poets of the twentieth century;  April 9 – “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui” – Tracy Boyce, a Feng Shui master practitioner, shares her expertise on this exciting concept;  May 14 – A Vietnam veteran’s look at that infamous war ; and finally on June 11 – “Stories in Stone –a look at Granby’s 14 smaller cemeteries” – Carol Laun from the Granby Historical Society tells the history of the smaller  cemeteries and what the gravestones can tell us about the life and death of Granby’s earlier residents.
