    Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children® is a 2.5-hour interactive training program providing participants with 5 steps to better protect children from sexual abuse. It gives adults tools for recognizing the signs of sexual abuse, responding to suspicions, and gives simple ways to minimize opportunities for abuse in organizations and in our community. This training is ideal for any adult in our community who has interactions with children.

    KIDS Center is a medical model Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) providing child abuse evaluations that include a head-to-toe medical exam, child-friendly forensic interview, family advocacy, and mental health services to children and families impacted by abuse. In addition, our services include prevention programs to help teach adults in our community how to better protect children from abuse.

    Children are referred for a KIDS Center evaluation by one of four community partners including law enforcement, DHS Child Welfare, medical providers, and licensed mental health professionals. Children and families can engage in KIDS Center advocacy and mental health services without participating in an evaluation. All of KIDS Center services are provided at no cost.

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    For more information about early literacy and how to talk, read, rhyme, play and write with your child, visit: https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/kids/literacy

    Enjoy beautiful harp music performed by Rebecca Smith.

    On March 17 2020 I dressed in green, loaded up my harp in my station wagon and hit the road ... and never performed the programs I had planned, because that was the day the state shut down due to what we now know as the Covid-19 Pandemic. In this program I would like to share some of my favorite Irish tunes that I didn't get to play that day: some O'Carolan airs, jigs and slip jigs, and a hornpipe. This music, performed on solo harp, can be melancholy or toe-tapping-- or sometimes both! So pull up a chair and enjoy with me.

    Rebecca Smith went to grade school in Sisters, high school in Redmond, began college in Bend at COCC and completed her music degree at the University of Oregon in Eugene. She began playing the harp classically while studying there, and branched out into other genres since. Her entire career has been dedicated to music as a teacher and performer, both publicly and privately. She is on the faculty of the Cascade School of Music, teaches privately at her Sisters studio, and lives in Sisters with her husband. *oo*

    Learn about meditation and mindfulness and how these practices can support you during the holiday season.

    Join Liz Skarvelis, Yoga Teacher and owner of Love Bird Yoga, to learn about meditation and mindfulness and how these practices can support you during the holiday season. Meditation and mindfulness both have proven health benefits and are, at their core, self-care practices. You will learn the difference between these two practices, experience both guided and silent meditation, and leave with tools to live a more mindful life.

    Liz Skarvalis: I have practiced yoga for over half my life and have studied and taught yoga for the past 12 years. Yoga has taught me to breathe, move, and live intentionally through presence, awareness, and focus. Through practices of movement, meditation, and mindfulness I have learned to be more compassionate with myself and others. It is my honor to share the practices of yoga with Redmond and the world at Love Bird Yoga. Find out more at www.lovebirdyoga.com. *zm*
