We eat with our eyes first If you have ever wondered how food bloggers and celebrity chefs make dishes look perfect on Instagram, and you are between 12 and 15, then “Instaworthy” is the class for you. This new class will explore and create fun desserts and dishes, and students will learn to Quenelle, create tuiles, and other fun techniques to take dishes up a notch and create beautiful plates! Check it out on page 48.

Did you ever want to get in on a SCRUM? Join us for the first Montgomery County Middle School Girls’ Rugby Program! This program is for middle school girls, ages 12 to 15 in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area to come have fun and learn to play rugby. Don’t know anything about rugby, but think it looks/sounds like fun? No experience is necessary. All participants will receive player registration with USA Rugby. See page 76.

Pickles are not just for sandwiches anymore Pickleball is the new sport that’s literally sweeping the nation and gaining particular popularity among active older adults. We supply rackets, balls and net. All abilities welcome. Locations and times are on pages 93.

Carol Bessette, a renowned tour guide and retired Air Force Intelligence Officer, will narrate the tour as you pass spy drops and homes of notorious players in the spy business.

Using Mindfulness to Increase Happiness

Ages 18 & Up: For most of us, happiness is dependent on outside conditions. We suffer from the “if only” disease and never have enough to be satisfied. Possessions, jobs or relationships - we’re always looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy. Eventually we realize that approach doesn’t work. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools to create a lasting happiness that doesn’t rely on others. We’ll explore how clinging to our attitudes and possessions create dissatisfaction, and how loving kindness, generosity and gratitude can help change your outlook on life.

5/19 Poison Ivy: Be Aware, not Afraid

Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans; PI) is widespread and toxic, with exposure causing an uncomfortable blistering and itching rash in many people that can be severe. Properly identifying poison ivy can be difficult. Uncertainty about successfully recognizing poison ivy and fear or anxiety about the rash leads many people to avoid the outdoors. The best method for learning to live with it and to prevent poison ivy contact or rash is to learn the facts about it and actually go outside and practice recognizing it. We will share and learn from others' personal PI experiences, dispel some myths about PI, take a hike to learn to recognize some of its local forms and favorite places, and explore some of the options available to ease the itch if you ever do get into it.

Register online at ActiveMONTGOMERY.org Tennis Stroke of the Week

Limited to 4 players at PBA and 6 players at WIT. The 3.0 player is fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but is not comfortable with all strokes and lacks execution when trying for directional control, depth, pace or altering distance of shots. First half of class focuses on needed drills and skills and finishes with a session of supervised match play. Instructor reserves the right to transfer you up or down a level if you are not closely matched in skill level.

NEW CLASS! Designed for players of all levels, each one-hour clinic provides intensive instruction on a specific tennis stroke. Fun drills and exercises help you sharpen fundamentals to improve your form, consistency, and overall game.

Class is led by our trained instructors and every participant is paired with an adult volunteer.
