2021 Mid-year virtual ald 1:  based on the book, "girl wash your face..."

Registration Full

March 31-April 1, 2021
11:00 am - 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Based on the book, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be, by Rachel Hollis.
Facilitated by Stephanie Dee Smith

“Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that’s a lie.

If you have ever said any of these things to yourself . . .

Something else will make me happy.
I’m not a good mom.
I will never get past this.
I am defined by my weight.
 I should be further along by now.

 . . . then you could benefit from the unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity Rachel Hollis has in store for you. In this challenging but conversational book, Rachel exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often we don’t even hear them anymore.

Rachel is real and talks about real issues. More than that, she reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be. Because you really can live with passion and hustle – and give yourself grace without giving up.” (Amazon)

2021 Mid-year virtual ald 2:  based on the book, "the boys in the boat"

Registration Full

April 2, 2021
9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Based on the book, The Boys in the Boat, by Daniel James Brown.
Facilitated by Peggy Hawker, MMC, City Recorder/Special Projects Director, for the City of Newport.

“Out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West (the Pacific Northwest to be exact) showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.

 It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.” (Amazon)
