Peace Trust, Route 165, 539 Beach Pond Road, Voluntown, CT

Presented by Partners in Healthy Communities
“Sustainability” has become a buzzword in recent years as communities try to avoid continuing drains on their citizen's time, energy, and resources. But achieving the perfect balance of supply and consumption has proven hard to do in practice, as personalities clash and entrenched positions slow down the routes to resolution.
To assist cities, towns, and organizations to come to grips with these elusive issues, Partners in Healthy Communities will present a seminar on Three Key Skills for Building Sustainable Communities.Programming will run from 9:30 to 12:30 on Saturday, July 26, at the Voluntown Peace Trust (539 Beach Pond Road, Voluntown). There is no fee but donations to Partners in Healthy Communities are welcome.

Featured speakers will address the following skill areas:

Compassionate Communication with Mark Roberts will review the basics of non-violent communication techniques pioneered by Marshall Rosenberg. These skills are highly effective at resolving often intractable conflicts through understanding each other's feelings and searching for common solutions which satisfy each party's needs.

Holistic Mental Health Treatments with author and TV host Gracelyn Guyol. Gracelyn will outline the benefits of a nutrient-dense diet, exercise, and other simple methods to reduce symptoms of mental illness. Gracelyn, author of Healing Depression & Bipolar Disorder Without Drugs and Who's Crazy Here and host of the popular TV series Restoring Health Holistically, was appointed to serve on the Connecticut Children's Mental Health Task Force as Complementary and Alternative Medicine Expert in September of 2013.

LEAN Optimization with Dr. David Cooper will present the benefits of employing LEAN techniques on a community-wide basis. For example, the food distribution system typically includes farmers, processors, transporters, warehouses and grocers. Applying LEAN techniques across all participants commonly results in double-digit reductions in waste and cost. Involvement by companies and workers is pivotal, requiring collaborative and coordinated efforts, with significant economic benefits for all stakeholders.

These introductory talks will be followed by more in-depth future programming in response to public interest.

To reserve a ticket to this program (suggested donation $20.00) go to: www.3skills2014.eventbrite.com; or, go to Facebook: Partners in Healthy Communities; email jonpersson7@gmail.com; or call 860-857-2687.

Summer Shovin':  Roller Derby Doubleheader & Food Drive;

Sports

Galaxy Roller Rink, 210 Bridge St., Groton, CT

After two doubleheader events of rocking, rollicking derby fun, Shoreline Roller Derby is asking its fans to help them fight hunger in the community. Their next roller derby doubleheader, Summer Shovin’ will also be a food drive to benefit the Gemma E. Moran Food Center. All of the food donated will be picked up by the United Way Food Center and distributed through their various programs in New London County. The Food Center provides food to soup kitchens, child care centers, and programs for the elderly with an emphasis on nutrition and fresh produce.
Shoreline Roller Derby has been making an effort to get out into the community lately. Besides events like the Spring Food Stroll and area parades, they’ve been volunteering at Fairview Retirement Home, the New London Community Meal Center and the Gemma E. Moran Food Center. On their initial visit to the Food Center, skaters prepped 550 pounds of potatoes that went out on the Mobile Food Pantry the next day and they’ll be back in July to prep and sort more food.
As far as the action goes, Shoreline will be meeting one team for the first time and have a rematch against another. The Salty Broads will play Western Massachusetts Roller Derby and the BellaDonnas will bout against the Upper Valley Vixens. The doors open at 5 on July 26th, the first game is at 6 and the second one starts at 8:30. It all happens at Galaxy Roller Rink in Groton. Tickets are $10 ahead of time, $12 at the door or $10 for Military with an ID. Everyone who brings a food donation will be entered into a special raffle for a free ticket to the next bout and perhaps some other extras. If you would like to donate to the food drive or to the raffle for the food drive, email communityrelations.slrd@gmail.com. Bring a chair and be ready to cheer because Summer Shovin’ is going to be a blast!
