Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

As 2019 winds to a close we’ll gather to pause and reminisce. What blessings did the year present? How did they help you to unwrap the gift of life that sits within you? How will you choose to share that gift with others?

Must register at least 24hrs prior to session. Contact Education Director Erin Thomas at ethomas@crma.org or 319.366.7503 ext. 203 to register. This program is for ages 13 and up. Fee: $10 payable to Noelle Holmes.

 

Theatre Production: The Wolves @ Armstrong Hall: Plumb-Flemming Black Box Theatre
Dec 12 @ 7:30 pm

By Sarah DeLappe, directed by Katy Hahn. Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

“The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” — The New York Times

“The Wolves is a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer … DeLappe’s dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain […] She offers us ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world. It’s a patch of Astroturf I would gladly set foot on again.” — The Village Voice

Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis @ Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis
Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As Dickens wrote, the ghosts of Christmas are really the past, present and future, swirling around us in the dead of the year. They’re a reminder that we’re all haunted, all the time, by good ghosts and bad, and that they all have something to tell us. Winter may seem like a quiet time, but it is actually filled with bizarre tales and stories of cannibalistic spirits, Krampus the anti-Santa Claus, stories of little people, werewolves, witches, people being buried alive, and numerous other Holiday traditions for the darkest days of the year. Sip a cup of cocoa or cider and join us for chilling and mysterious folklore perfect for this time of year, sponsored in part by the Hiawatha Public Library.

 

For over two decades Chad Lewis has traveled the back roads of the world in search of the strange and unusual. From tracking Vampires in Transylvania and searching for the elusive monster of Loch Ness to trailing the dangerous Tata Duende through remote villages of Belize and searching for ghosts in Ireland’s castles, Chad has scoured the earth in search of the paranormal. Chad has been featured on the Discovery Channel’s A Haunting, William Shatner’s Weird or What, ABC’s World’s Scariest Places, Monsters and Mysteries in America, along with being a frequent contributor to Ripley’s Believe it or Not Radio. With a Master’s Degree in Psychology, Chad has authored over 20 books on the supernatural and extensively lectures on his fascinating findings.
