Basic Yoga with Diane Sutrick

Join us for an all-levels basic yoga class! We will spend time focusing on the breath and becoming more centered and mindful. Next, we will move slowly through postures that will improve strength, flexibility, and stability within the body. Then we will strive to connect the breath to our movement. Finally, we will come to a resting pose to close the class. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring your own yoga mat. Beginners are welcome! Limited to 15 participants.

Historic Fussville with Carole McGibany

What is Fussville?  Is it a magical place like Brigadoon or Camelot?  No!  It used to be a separate community southeast of Menomonee Falls before it was annexed by the Village in 1958.  Carole McGibany, a local historian and author of Glimpses and A Second Glimpse, will speak about the founding, growth, and eventual demise of this once-thriving community.
