The Spoon Man wants to spoon you. He is an interactive musical family comedian. In 1986, he performed to Mikhail Gorbachev while in Russia. He also performed for former U.S. President Gerald Ford and Mr. Rogers. His totally clean act (never uses dirty silverware) with audience participation is ideal for libraries. The first thing your patrons will do after seeing his performance, is run to the kitchen and grab a pair of spoons. He also offers for tweens, teens and adults a BYOS (bring your own spoons) workshop. His book Spoon Boy was published in 2008. Read about his book on his website. COLORED posters are provided for advertising your event. Cruise invites you to join his growing list of the Spooned.

Life Skills- Other,
Other
Do you want to dream of the life you want or do you want to live the life of your dreams? Do you frequently fantasize about the life you always wanted but never seem to enjoy? Does “the grass look greener on the other side”? Do you often wonder “what if this, or that, had happened”? Do you question “why, or why not, me”? We are, for the most part, conductors of our own life’s symphony, choreographers of our own life’s dance, authors of our own life’s story line. During this seminar, motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan provides insight on how to begin living a fulfilled life by incorporating awareness, acknowledgment and action into our daily lives.

(Or,alternatively, a chickadee box with a smaller entrance hole for those who do not have good bluebird habitat.) The nest box building program includes a PowerPoint presentation on bluebirds and other birds with John Rogers. This dynamic and colorful PowerPoint presentation will educate the audience on bluebirds, other birds, and how to properly place their box, etc. The slide program will add about 45 minutes, making the total time up to 90 minutes. Customized as needed. (Please refer to the other listing for a description of the full length, stand alone PowerPoint presentation.) Children, adults, and families love this hands-on activity, and it provides an opportunity to help bluebirds, other birds, and the environment, too. Materials include pre-cut wood, nails, and inside plastic strip. Tools include hammers and safety glasses. Mr. Rogers cuts and drills the wood himself in his garage.

Other
Whatever your boss calls it, you’ve been fired. Instead of holding the infamous “pity party,” try hosting a celebration bash. After all, you are now FREE to explore new possibilities, perhaps find a job you really could love, finish that screenplay you started in college, join the Peace Corp, or follow your passion into a self-employment venture. Consider the statistic: The unemployment rate ranges between 8 and 9% and that does not include those whose unemployment benefits have run out, those who have not held a job long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits, and the seniors who have stopped looking after being beaten down by ageism. Your chance of finding employment in the current economy is not good. With the assistance of career counselor Constance Hallinan Lagan, this seminar may enable you to transition into the life you have always dreamt about.
