AMHERST – On New Years morning a number of people met to Run/Walk/jog in Amherst Village to assist Share of Milford. Share assists area towns with clothes, food and much more. This years PJ run was able to donate over a 100 pairs of PJ’s, some winter jackets, and cash donations to assist Share with their needs.  Runners were given hand made cookies, by Maggie Salvas. Thank You to everyone who donated and made this the most successful year yet.

Mediation in Nature

A Guide will lead the group through the forest offering skillfully crafted meditation invitations which will allow participants to open their senses and experience the forest in a new way, even if they’ve been hiking in the forest for years. The idea took birth in Japan in the 1980’s and proved to be a very effective tool to reduce the ill effects of a hectic life and stressful work environment.
