Intergenerational Program

Community Drumming Circle
Join us in building a healthy community through engaging activities
One Thursday per month from September to December (Sept. 12, Oct. 10, Nov. 14 and Dec. TBA) Time: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Vicky Mulligan and Linda Bagdon, LIFE Center Stage
This program is brought to you by Butler Municipal Alliance and The Friends of the Butler Public Library.
Community drumming offers a physical activity that promotes relaxation and the use of fine motor skills. It helps to build a sense of group identity and a feeling of belonging and provides an opportunity for active participation in a music experience. We will introduce the Butler community and families to the power of traditional drumming and help create positive memories. In addition to learning how to play a djembe, this group course will give tools to encourage social interaction and reduce stress while having fun. Materials will be shared with participants relating to the prevention of substance use disorder in the community. The last class in this series will culminate in a fun-filled event in which all are welcome to attend. This program is free of charge but limited to 25 people ages 5 and up. Please call 973-838-3262 to sign up in advance.
