Sharon Historical Society - Connecticut Towns: Iron and Ivory in Connecticut

02/23/2014

Sharon Congregational Church, Main St, Sharon, CT Phone: 860-364-5688.

Take a step back into the industrial days of Connecticut's past with two documentary films offering insight into two fascinating industries: the iron-making companies of Northwestern Connecticut, and the ivory-processing houses of Ivoryton, Connecticut. For two centuries Connecticut was a major center for making iron in America. Visions of Iron presents years of historical research on the rich iron region of the Salisbury Iron District. Then, travel down the Connecticut River with Legacies of White Gold to explore Ivoryton's unique history in the ivory trade. Did you know that combs, billiard balls, and piano keys were once produced here in Connecticut using ivory tusks? This industry was a boon for Connecticut, but wreaked devastation in Africa where elephants were slaughtered and men were enslaved. This will be a facilitated discussion, viewing time for the two films is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, discussion will follow. Partially funded by a grant from Connecticut Humanities, Connecticut at Work Initiative.

New Morning Market Walking With Ease and Power

02/23/2014

129 Main Street North, Woodbury, CT Phone: 203-263-4868.

23rd 11:00am Byron Eddy LMT, CMI Walking is the premier functional exercise of daily human life. Observe people walking and you will see many different forms. Why? It is a learned behavior and is not part of our autonomic nervous system. We learned to walk primarily through observation and experimentation. Using the functional pathways of CMI we can become aware of and change, in a positive way, our habitual patterns and come out better possibly avoiding hip, knee, and back trouble. In this two hour class you will be guided into new ways of walking from standing, lying, and sitting positions. This is not an exercise class and is beneficial to all people in all "walks" of life. Dress in comfortable clothing and be prepared to move. Bring a yoga mat or large bath towel. GET Tickets: $24.00.
