...will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18th, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm at Emmanuel United Church, 203 Principale, Cowansville. The workshop presents 26 Brain Gym® movements and various learning applications.

Lisa Marcovici, the instructor, has been actively involved in her sons’ school bringing Brain Gym to the students, teachers and parents of her community for the last five years. Working both in English and in French, her goal is to make Brain Gym accessible to everyone in a fun and practical way. She is currently setting up her own practice as a licensed Brain Gym educator in Montreal, Quebec.
Two YLC members were recognized in the 2008 Canada Post Community Literacy Awards.
YLC student, Eric Savage won the Individual Achievement award which celebrates the achievements of adult learners who overcome social or economic barriers by improving their literacy skills.
Martha Shufelt, Eric’s tutor, was a finalist for the Educator award which honours educators, tutors, and advocates who have demonstrated a commitment to adult literacy. Congratulations to you both.
YLC is looking for music of any genre we can use to play during slide-show presentations at our display booths at Brome Fair, Townshippers’ Day, etc. Any lyrics that include allusions to literacy, She wrote me a letter or Bookends; or positive direction, I’m on my way - would be appreciated. Use your imagination - any suggestions would be appreciated and if you have it on a CD even better. Call me. Vicky
