First Friday Art Walk Featuring Jaana Hatton
Jaana Hatton‘s photographs will be featured in the Pybus Boardroom in the month of October. Stop in and see her photos on Friday, October 2nd from 5-7pm for the First Friday Art Walk.   Bio: Jaana grew up playing in the woodlands of Finland. She spent most of her adult life as a global nomad, living in various countries of the world for 25 years due to her husband’s work with the US Government. Now, having left the big cities behind and happily residing in Wenatchee with her husband and younger son, she is again playing in the woods and along the river. As a freelance journalist and photographer, Jaana finds inspiration in sharing experiences and sceneries around us. According to her, nature offers neither pity nor pretense, but reality as it arrives moment by moment. You are invited to share my happy outdoor moments through these photos. Prints are available on request, $30 for the 11×14 size posters which are on display. Other sizes can be ordered, as well.

Pybus University: Supporting our Youth: The 4 Essential Elements of Positive Youth Development
Class Description Youth development professionals, parents, teachers, and coaches often will do whatever it takes to see youth succeed and grow into confident, competent, contributing adults. However, even the most skilled parents and professionals may sometimes feel lost and struggle to know what’s best when it comes to raising healthy youth. Decades of research on positive youth development have studied and observed thousands of youth and their life experiences, and hundreds of educational and youth organizations to identify what the core concepts – or essential elements are – to create environments that optimize youth mental, emotional, and behavioral health. Come learn how we as teachers, parents, coaches, and other youth development professionals can enhance program efforts to make a difference in the lives of youth in our community.   Instructor Bio Stephanie Smith is the 4-H Regional Specialist for Chelan, Douglas, and Grant Counties and is in the process of completing her PhD in Prevention Science, an interdisciplinary degree that applies basic research on individuals, families, and their communities to develop, evaluate, and disseminate scientifically based programs that promote the physical, social, and psychological well-being of individuals and their families. In this class Stephanie will give an overview of 4 Essential Elements that top researchers in the field know make youth development programs effective, and how parents, teachers, and youth program facilitators can best support positive youth development.

Pybus University: The Magic of Poetry
Oct 13 @ 7:00 pm
Pybus University: The Magic of Poetry
Class Description Discover the magic of poetry with Perri the Poetry Fairy! In this introductory session, we’ll explore: what makes a poem a poem? How does it differ from prose? What can a poem do? You will learn some terminology, such as line breaks, stanzas, enjambment, rhyme and rhyme scheme. We will discuss examples of haiku, limericks, sonnets,story poems and free verse. You’ll get your feet wet with some fun rhyming poems by Jack Prelutsky, Shel Silverstein and A.A. Milne, as well as a few of Peri’s poems for kids. We will also read some very accessible poems by Mary Oliver, Billy Collins and Robert Frost. Handouts will be provided with the poems we read plus additional recommended reading and online resources. For more insight into Perri/Susan Blair, please visit perrithepoetryfairy.com and shrubsteppepoetry.org. Instructor Bio Susan Blair has always had a passion for poetry in any shape or form. For many years she volunteered as a reading assistant in local schools. Until one day, an idea came to her to create a character, Perri the Poetry Fairy. Susan could dress in costume, appear in costume and create a lively and engaging way for children (and adults) to enjoy poetry. An early introduction to poetry helps children not only enhance their reading and listening skills, but will also nurture an interest in poetry they can carry with them through life. Susan has written five collections of poems for children, illustrated by her late sister Donna. In her sister’s honor, all the proceeds of Susan’s books will be donated to the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in New York where Donna was treated. This class will be held virtually.

Pybus University: Learn about the Traditions & History of the Day of the Dead
Class Description Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions associated with the holiday include creating altars decorated with sugar skulls, marigolds and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. In Brazil, the holiday is known as Dia de Finados and is marked by visits to cemeteries and churches. In Spain, the day is marked by festivals and parades, graveside observances and prayer for dead loved ones. In the past the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center, has invited members of our community to either create their own Día de los Muertos altar or to bring photographs in honor of lost loved ones to the Museum on the day of the event to display on a Community Altar. Things may look a little different this year so Ashley will be introducing community members who will give a lesson on Altars and tell about the significance and meaning behind them. They will walk you through how to build one of your own at home. The night will include a chance to ask questions and comment and chat about this special holiday. Instructor Bio This class will be presented by Ashley Sinner, the Outreach & Public relations Coordinator at the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center and members of the Wenatchee Valley community.

Pybus University: Putting Your Dahilas to Bed
Class Description Dahlias grow from tubers that are planted a few inches below the surface of the garden. Because of this, tubers rarely survive our harsh winters if they are left in the ground at the end of the season. Although some growers purchase new tubers each year, most people prefer to dig up this year’s crop in the fall, saving the tubers for the next year. Tubers can easily be successfully stored in a cool dry place over the winter, giving you healthy roots to plant next spring. Visit our website for information on NCW Dahlia Society, https://www.ncwdahlias.org/ and the American Dahlia Society webpage for information on growing dahlias: https://www.dahlia.org/tubers-2/ Instructor Bio Two or three sentences. Why are you teaching this class? This is what will be read as your intro unless you prefer otherwise. Members of the North Central Washington Dahlia Society have all been growing dahlias for years. It has been a labor of love for all of us, and we are committed to encouraging and assisting community members who want to learn more about growing dahlias in their gardens. We enjoy sharing ideas with anyone who is interested, and we learn a lot from you and from each other. Pybus has been a wonderful partner for the NCW Dahlia Society.
