Lapham Center calendar
Published 1:04 am, Thursday, March 4, 2010
Spring classes are in full swing at Lapham Center. This is a good time to try out a class or other activity as the flight of the snowbirds to warmer climes has left space in many programs. Stop by to pick up a newsletter or check out the newsletter online at www.laphamcenter.org. Call 203-594-3620 for more information about any of the activities listed below.
Tomorrow's Free Friday Film at 1 p.m., "Up" (8.5), is a very highly rated animated film about a 78 year-old man who sets out to fulfill a lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. It is narrated by Ed Asner and Christopher Plummer. At 1 p.m. on Wednesday "Into the Storm" (7.0) will be shown.
