BRING a small pillow and/or large towel if possible. Two standing postures will begin class focusing on muscle action and alignment.

Ann Broder Memorial @ Beaver Island Community School
Jun 28 @ 11:00 am

Life-long summer resident Ann Broder will be memorialized on Wednesday, June 28 at 11AM at the Beaver Island Community School. Refreshments to follow.

Ann played many roles in her long life: precocious Indiana farm girl; gifted University of Chicago student; spouse of political reporter and columnist David S. Broder, mother to four sons; Arlington County political activist; Arlington County Board of Education member and leader; world traveler, artist and patron of the arts; philanthropist; and political mentor. It was a life fully-lived.
She left her mark on Arlington County over six decades of activism, first through her leadership roles in Arlingtonians for a Better County, and later through eight years of service on the Arlington County Board of Education, including two terms as Board Chairman.
In later years, Ann was an active supporter of the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN) and the Arlington Arts Center. She continued her political volunteer work well into her 80’s, serving most recently as the Democratic Precinct Captain for The Jefferson, the high-rise apartment building where she lived in Arlington.
Ann never lost touch with her Midwestern roots. She spent virtually every summer of her life at a rustic wood cottage on Beaver Island, Michigan, that had been built by her grandfather before World War I. She was deeply attached to Beaver Island, and her ashes will be interred there next summer, not far from the family cottage.
Survivors include her four sons, George, Josh (Karen Leiner), Matthew (Susan Neitlich), and Michael (Robin); seven grandchildren; and a wide circle of friends. She was predeceased by her husband and her brother, William.

Seminar: Patterns of Fish Distribution in Lake Michigan Drowned River Mouths @ CMU Biological Station
Jun 28 @ 7:00 pm

During extremely low water levels, thousands of years ago, rivers eroded broad ravines at their confluence with the Great Lakes. As water levels rose, these eroded areas back filled and flooded with water creating coastal lakes between tributaries and Lake Michigan along its eastern shore. These drowned river mouth lakes are extremely fertile and are influenced by water levels and conditions occurring in Lake Michigan, providing unique habitat for fish communities. Dr. Carl Ruetz, of Grand Valley State University, will demonstrate spatial and temporal patterns in fish distribution throughout these systems.

You can learn more about Dr. Ruetz and his research here: http://www.gvsu.edu/wri/ruetz/

Dave Bennett Quartet, Cabaret-style! @ Beaver Island Community Center
Jun 30 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dave Bennett Quartet on Beaver Island
Dave Bennett performs on Beaver Island!

This show will not only showcase Dave’s incredible clarinet, but his fine voice, as well as his famous “barrelhouse boogie-woogie” piano. Backed by their full repertoire of Swing, Dixieland and Benny Goodman standards, the Quartet will also branch out. “I play swing, gospel, blues and rock. People who don’t usually listen to jazz will still like it and relate to it,” Benett said. “I want it to be accessible.”

The multi-instrumentalist, most known for mastering the clarinet, began playing at age 10, around the time he fell for Benny Goodman’s tunes. But he also plays music that “might not spring into your mind as traditional jazz,” he said. “When people think about jazz, they have one idea that pops into their head,” he added. “There’s more to it.”

The Dave Bennet Quartet will be featured ‘Cabaret-style’ with a cash bar (starting at 7pm)—and limited seating—so reserve your table-seat early!

Due to the availability of alcoholic beverages, admittance is restricted to those 21 years of age and older.

Please Note: A Combo ticket price of $60 is available for those also purchasing tickets to the August 18th performance of Terry Lower with special guests Edie Evans Hyde and Martha Guth.
