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!

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.
