Canton Response to Hate Crime Coalition

The Canton Response to Hate Crime Coalition is committed to working to secure the right of every person in Canton to be free from hate crimes and bias-motivated incidents. What is a hate crime? Who are its victims? How do we prevent hate crimes? Come hear the answers and get ideas about how to guide your children in a tolerant, non-violent, non-bullying life. Bring your questions and concerns on Thursday, September 8 at 7:00 PM in the Community Room to Officer Dale Waltz of the Canton Public Safety Department and library director Eva Davis, Coalition co-chair.

Laughter, Meditation and Gratitude

It is rare that we get the opportunity to learn from a meditation master, but on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00PM, we will have that opportunity. Swami Satya Niranjan, popularily known as respected Bagmarji, and Om Johari will discuss the healthy, psychological and spiritual benefits of laughter. While using laughter as an example of meditation, the pair will show how and why to meditate, to show gratitude and be happy all the time.
No registration is needed.
