New Exhibition - 50 Years of Franklin - Schulz Museum

Charles Schulz introduced topical issues using humor as a vehicle for serious subjects. In 1968, shortly after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a LA Schoolteacher, Harriet Glickman, wrote to Schulz regarding the integration of Peanuts. She believed that the popular comic strip could help influence attitudes on race. As a result of their correspondence, Franklin was introduced to the cartoon & soon became a series regular.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES - 6th Street Playhouse

After 20 years of un-wedded bliss, Georges & Albin, 2 men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a 1-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the 'family business': Albin & Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the "star" performer 'Zaza'. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.

Breakthrough to Super Focus, Balance & Self-Care Workshop - Santa Rosa

10am–12:30pm - Many of us with great ideas & really intend to act on them, only to find ourselves stuck in the rut of procrastination & doubt, again. Confusion, frustration & judgment, from the inner critic & others, sets in and freezes the good intentions so that goals are unrealized & negative thinking is reinforced. We feel that we’ll never do it perfectly enough anyway, so we often fail before we’ve even begun.

This is a HUGE roadblock for many! But there is hope, tools & techniques to get you UNSTUCK.
Solution:
In Breaking Through to Super Focus, Balance & Self Care, Marjorie Favuzzi, CLC, will teach tools & techniques to break free of the barriers to turn your good intentions into real success. Using Marjorie’s signature Turning I Can’t into I CAN!™ process, you will become focused, let go of old stories & distinguish facts from FEAR. Right action & success follow!
