Fit and Fun for Free at People Plus in January

If you made a New Year’s resolution to “pick up the pace” of your personal fitness, or try a new activity, why not come to People Plus and start something new at no cost? Try any one (or more) of our offerings during January for Free!

Executive Director Stacy Frizzle explains, “this is more about getting new folks into new experiences,” she said, “we’re confident if they try it, they’ll like it!” The Center routinely offers more than a dozen fitness classes each week, varying from Table Tennis (free all the time!) to Tai Chi. All of our instructor led courses are available to members for a cost of only $5 a session. And the Center has over a dozen clubs that meet regularly to write, play a game, converse in a different language and more!
“The goal is to get folks engaged,” Frizzle explained, “This offer is for new attendees to try classes/clubs and see if they like it. We’re confident they will. There is no better investment than the one we all make in our own personal health. What a way to start the New Year!”

Memory Enhancment Class

People Plus and Mid Coast–Parkview Health have partnered to offer a new Memory Enhancement Class focused on early stage memory loss.

The five-week Saturday class is limited to eight participants and their support person. It will run from Saturday, Jan. 11 – Feb. 15, 2020 (no class Feb. 1) from 9:30 – 11:30 am at the People Plus Center, 35 Union Street. Cost is $10 per participant/support person totaling $50 for each pair.

People Plus Acoustic Music Club - NEW

We be “jammin” at People Plus! If you play an instrument at an intermediate or better level and want to jam with some new friends come join the fun at People Plus with this new club!

Bring your own instrument, be able to share a few songs and know basic chords. The club will be playing mostly folk, blues, bluegrass and other acoustic music in a song circle format where everyone gets a turn to share a song, with others joining in.

Open to current People Plus members and community members 18 years or older and graduated high school. (People Plus membership is not required for your first few visits, but you will need to eventually become a member, only $30/year for Brunswick residents, $35 all others)!

This fun music club will be coordinated by Brunswick resident Jim Ru who plays a variety of instruments and has played in small informal groups, open mikes and house jams. Jim enjoys live acoustic music, especially when people just pull up a chair and share a song or two.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: TRICKY BRITCHES

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: Tricky Britches

Tricky Britches will bring their high-energy string band to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on Saturday January 11 at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for local charities.From their roots of playing heel-stomping old-time fiddle tunes on the streets of Portland, Tricky Britches has progressed into a fusion of original material, classic bluegrass, country, and folk rock. The band consists of Tyler Lienhardt on fiddle, Seth Doyle on mandolin, Jed Bresette on bass, and Ryan “Bear” Wilkinson on banjo. The story of the band begins in the spring of 2009 when three longtime friends from Gorham decided to take the songs from their back-porch jam sessions and Portland street corner busking to the next step. They produced a CD of old-time tunes and started playing for weddings, parties, and contradances.

As time went by, the band added a banjo player, started writing their own songs and produced 2 more CD’s featuring their original material. Their influences include John Hartford, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers, The Grateful Dead, The Everly Brothers, and American traditional folk music.

Before the boys knew it, Tricky Britches was playing concerts and music festivals all over Maine, the US, Hawaii and Europe, but their favorite show is still on a crowded street corner at midnight.

Click here for a sample of their music, Jackson Square.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, Students/Children: $5. Available on December 1st at the church office, Gulf of Maine Books, or online at https://britches.brownpapertickets.com/.

Two-thirds of the proceeds from this concert will benefit TEDFORD HOUSING (providing housing and services for the homeless) and OASIS FREE CLINICS (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can’t afford insurance)
