Genetic Roulette: Health Risks of Engineered Foods
Presented by GMO Free CT
Tuesday, May 21st , 6:30 to 9:0
Since the introduction two decades ago of GMO (genetically modified organism) crops into our environment and food supply, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock and pets that have been fed genetically modified foods are now on the rise in the U.S. population. There is compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children. Join us to discuss this important issue. We will help you understand what you can do to avoid GMOs and answer any questions you may have. You're welcome to come at the last minute even if you haven't signed in!

"It Gets Better"
With Amber Wright
Thursday, May 23 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM
In the Meeting Room
Amber Wright is a Columbine survivor, elementary school teacher, and mother who wrote 'It Gets Better' specifically for the children of Newtown. She raised funds to have the book printed and to bring donated copies to our community. The book offers words of hope and encouragement to help kids cope with the difficult emotions related to post-traumatic stress. It is beautifully illustrated with photographs by Sarah Wood.
“I wanted to give the children something they could hold in their hands, something meaningful that they could understand,” said Wright.
While 'It Gets Better' is a children's book, this evening talk is geared toward adults. We hope you can join us! Free copies of the book will be available for participants to bring home and share with their young ones. We expect this program to fill fast, so please register here to ensure that you get a seat!
