Diaper Drive hosted by Aeroflow Healthcare @ Aeroflow Healthcare
Apr 22 @ 8:30 am – Apr 26 @ 1:30 pm

We are teaming up with the Diaper Bank of North Carolina to give families in Western North Carolina the opportunity to have happy, healthy and DRY babies!

Unfortunately, not all moms are able to provide diapers at the amount their child needs. Some even have to decide between buying diapers or food for their child. Help moms in our community by donating a pack of diapers today!

Ask us how your company/organization can be involved!

Safety Has A Name – Name our Safety Around Water Mascot @ Reuter Family YMCA
Apr 23 @ 8:00 am – 8:00 pm

Parker, Paxton or Piper? What should the name of our new mascot be for our Safety Around Water (SAW) program at the Reuter Family YMCA? Donate to the Annual Campaign to push your name to the top. We will announce the name May 1 at our next SAW program. Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help make sure children learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely. Safety Around Water is not a traditional swim lesson. This eight-day course, taught by a certified instructor, teaches children two sets of skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water. Support giving children skills for a lifetime today. https://www.ymcawnc.org/programs/swimming/drowning-prevention

A Vanderbilt House Party – The Gilded Age (April) @ Biltmore
Apr 23 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Experience America’s Largest Home® in an Entirely New Way
February 8–May 27, 2019

For the first time, reproductions of clothing from the Vanderbilts’ own wardrobes are displayed in the settings in which they were originally worn: the elegant rooms of Biltmore House.

Guided by Biltmore curators, Oscar®-winning costumier John Bright and Cosprop, London meticulously recreated fashions favored by the Vanderbilts and their guests at turn-of-the-century celebrations known as house parties.

A new custom Exhibition Audio Guided Tour created for this exhibition combines realistic 360° sound techniques with stories told from the perspectives of those who lived and worked at Biltmore in the early 1900s; this special component is what makes this exhibition a unique, immersive audio-visual Biltmore experience. As you hear the stories and witness scenes previously seen only in century-old black-and-white photographs brought to vivid, colorful life, you will feel as though you were attending A Vanderbilt House Party.

Body Image Foudnations: Reclaim your body, time, energy & power @ A Simple Vibrant Life
Apr 23 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Foundations: Body Shapes, Sizes & Parts: love ’em, hate ’em, livin’ with ’em.

We are so much more than these bodies, and at the same time, these bodies are the alter of the temple of life. We have been taught to run negative tapes about our bodies, and it steals our time, energy, money and power. It’s time to reclaim our bodies, which might be one of the most radical acts we can do in changing the world.

In this class we will:

celebrate and appreciate the brilliance of these bodies
unpack the cultural and familial messages around bodies, shapes, sizes and parts.
release shame we hold around our bodies, learning to accept all of ourselves, even the part that might hate my thighs.
and make steady progress to give these bodies and our lives the attention and appreciation they deserve.

STARTS April
5 Mondays from 5:00 – 6:30 EST
Limited to 20 women per session
Run via Zoom Conference Video (phones are acceptable.)
Daily Group Dialogues and Support
$220 for 5 weeks.*

Sign up today. A better way to deal with the holidays!
