Signs from Heathens: ASL Study Group

CJ's House

Join us as we learn American Sign Language together! DESCRIPTIVE WORDS We will be learning signs for emotions, feelings, and other descriptive words. ACTION WORDS We will review signs for verbs and action words. NEW TO ASL No problem! Several of us are new beginners, we're learning together. WHY LEARN ASL Nearly 28 Million Americans have some form of hearing loss. Currently, a small percentage of those can only communicate via sign language, and are forced to stick within the deaf community. One great advantage of learning sign is expanding the social networking of those people, allowing them to further participate in society more easily. Other reasons to learn sign language: Become more expressive: Sign language is the key to create vivid and lasting imagery. Anyone who enjoys story telling, or making jokes can incorporate sign language to better captivate audiences. Pick up on body language: Given that sign language is a visual language, it's no surprise that you can also learn to better understand body language. Hold silent conversations with friends: Communicate in secret! Whether it be clubs, movie theaters or libraries, you don't need to whisper or yell to talk to your friends in sticky situations. Learning is fun!

Heathens in Nature: Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Art Fair w COR's Nina Dusa

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

Update: Due to a special art show occurring this month which will feature one of our own, Nina Dusa, I am changing the location of our hike to Pyramid Hill. Join your fellow heathens for our monthly walk in nature and take in some amazing art sculptures and local artist works. Pyramid Hill is a local gem that has been features on many traveling shows and in many travel guides. In 1987, local Harry Wilkes, a lover of art, bought a parcel of land in Hamilton for his home. Once there, he began collecting sculptures which eventually led to the creation of the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park. This hike will be the most unique hike you've experienced and I assure you that you will love the place; beautiful sculptures, carefully crafted landscaping and gorgeous views abound. After the hike, we can check out the art fair and visit our fellow COR member, Nina Dusa at her booth. There is a $7 admission fee per carload for entering the park. I have 3 available tickets for $4.50 for the first three who rsvp. We can purchase additional discounted tickets if needed. Meet at the main visitor's center at 9am. As always, my hikes are kid and fur kid friendly. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring water for yourself and any kiddos. After we can grab lunch nearby.
