They all need our help ~ Please be generous!

Even if you can’t make it to class … stop by anyway!

11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 
Enjoy hot apple cider and deeee-licious sweet treats. And, maybe some savory things, too. (The Peaceful Hands Test Kitchen is still working on the menu … )

Enter to win a PEACEFUL HANDS HOLIDAY BASKET, filled with some of my favorite things and a few other surprises, too!

Take a Book, because it’s our third annual FREE Yoga book giveaway! 

Visit with The Wildlife Center’s Executive Vice President Randy Huwa who will be there to thank you for your support and to tell you about the wild patients you have helped — from bear cubs to hummingbirds.

Bring a friend. You don’t have to do Yoga to come by. And, please let others know about this Open House — it’s a great way to introduce new folks to our Yoga studio and to the work of the Wildlife Center.

I hope you’ll stop by. (I can’t eat all these cookies by myself, you know … plus, I want to see you!)  

Here are just a couple of things the Peaceful Hands family has done to help support The Wildlife Center and its patients this year.

You gathered clover, garden greens, and acorns through our “Team Bunny” program, provided lots of brown paper bags for the daily feeding of the bear cubs, and saved an orphaned squirrel in our parking lot before the 4:30 class this summer. (That squirrel, by the way, made it through a-ok and just last week was released in Madison County at the Beier’s farm.)

Thank you, as always, for your boundless kindnesses.
