1:00 PM - 2:30 PM    Our Smile Club


Location:  Dede Ewald Room
Contact:   / /
Description:  Our Smile Club (OSC) is a grassroots movement created by one woman, Madaline Weber, who had a thought to doodle, created a design, and had another thought to share it with the world. So, she made copies of her famous SMILE cards, and with random acts of kindness she invited individuals to join Our Smile Club. The only rule of the team is to smile at others in order to assist in healing our world one smile at a time.
 
Since April of 2014 over 8,000 copies have been circulated and live in windows, on dressers, in cars, on refrigerators and offices all around the world. The responses to these cards, these acts of bravery and kindness have spread. In Cottonwood, Arizona, these cards live in most business windows and Madaline is famous in her home town as the Smile Lady and the Great Hugger.
 
Conscious communication can be defined as a way of talking and listening that is focused on growing strong, mutually enriching relationships. Our Smile Club is a new discussion group focusing on conscious communication that will meet at the library every Friday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. starting on January 4. OSC is about discovering your personal foundation where one can find certainty in relationships with self and others.

Location:  The Dede Ewald Room
Contact:  Susan / (928) 274-6289 / susankayejones@gmail.com

Description:  Humanity is only now beginning to see itself as an international community in need of a world order and internationally regulated justice. It would be perhaps impossible to find a nation or people not in a state of crisis today. The materialism, the lack of true religion and the consequent baser forces in human nature which are being released, have brought the whole world to the brink of probably the greatest crisis it has ever faced or will have to face.
