Not Just Horsing Around- How horses can help reduce stress and improve personal development.
How cool is it that two of our WBC members have experience in working with horses? Come to the July meeting to hear from Martha Clipp and Brittney McVey explain this unique learning experience for personal growth.
Martha's talk will focus on Equine Facilitated Learning and she will share how working with horses helps us to recognize and enforce our personal boundaries, as well as recognizing and respecting other people's boundaries. This skill is the foundation for mutual respect.
Brittney' work specializes in Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy, or EAP. EAP uses the power of herd behavior to teach, educate, and treat a variety of life stressors and mental illness through the genuine and honest nature of the horse.
We are following the Phase 4 guidelines. *Seating will be set for social distancing. *The food will be set up differently.
* Please wear masks except when eating.
*Prepaid luncheons do not need to RSVP.
*You must sign up ahead of time by Monday July 20. No exceptions! We cannot allow walk ins due to the need to set up for social distancing.
We understand if you do not feel comfortable attending. We will do our best to be safe.

Cooking with Leah Bodine from Blue Dragonfly Catering - schedule your choice between 2 days!
Because I know many of you were looking forward to another cooking event, but also want to stay safe, we are scheduling 2 days of cooking with Leah! Each day will allow up to 8 people... Sign up for which day you prefer! Can sign up a guest too!
I know many of you will be ready to get out there again, and we want to help you do that while following social distancing guidelines! (Please bring a mask for entering the building... And for times you may not be eating/drinking).
We know how much you enjoyed Grovestone last year, so this year, we are cooking in Leah's Kitchen! For $20, you can cook a meal that is good for 2 portions... And since we are interested in supporting women owned businesses, you have an opportunity to donate additional money to support her during these difficult times. I also know some want to support her, but may not be able to make either day... We are giving you a chance to also just donate!
But... Hoping to see you one of the days for some cooking fun!!
We have created the following Mediterranean Meal!
