JUNE 2024


Visit New Horizons today!

It’s June! By the calendar we’re nearly halfway through the year. By the seasons we’re about to enter summer — halfway through our journey around the Sun, on Planet Earth. This month marks the summer solstice — the longest day of the year. While it’s barely noticeable, that means the days will slowly — gradually — begin to grow shorter.

Change is inevitable. Sometimes it happens slowly and is only evident as it accumulates — like the days changing. Sometimes it happens quickly. At New Horizons, you may notice some of both kinds of change. We are seeing more members stop in or log on for programs as well as for lunch. The trends are positive. We are also seeing new members join our community. We continue to add new programs, new topics for lectures and new twists on older, already well-loved programs.

This month at New Horizons we celebrate our wonderful volunteers, without whom our work would be more challenging, if not, in many cases, impossible. We hope that you will celebrate with us on June 14. The next week, as a nation we stop to celebrate and give thanks for the end of slavery — Juneteenth.

We all have so much to give thanks for — not least, for each other. I hope you will stop by the Center and say hello soon. Please share our community.

Keep reading below and also refer to the calendar and our website for everything going on at the Center this month.

Can't make it in person? We will always try to welcome you via Zoom if we are able. That being said, not every program or activity works well online.

We are here for you!!

Our Community Depends on You

Donations can also be mailed to

Mother Earth has changed: her anger shows.

How much time left? Only she really knows!


We need to change our attitude

And show a little more gratitude


We need to be more ecologically-prone;

Start small, like recycling your own cell phone,


And planting trees, composting food scraps,

Buying organic and donating clothes, perhaps.


Using rags instead of towels from paper;

Eating lower on the food chain, a daily caper.

Ride a bike to the P.O. instead of a car

Return to using leftovers in a washable, glass jar.


Purchase fewer clothes, and make them organic.

Use both sides of white paper, no need to panic.

Find one thing each day that you can change,

Like planting a garden, on your patio to rearrange.


Make a list of all the changes you can do,

And add them to your daily routine; Yes, I mean YOU!


Check off each item as it becomes a habit,

Don’t run scared, like a small baby rabbit.

With list in hand you can proceed slowly or fast,

Just be sure the habit will last,


Until it becomes a change in your life,

Like eating your food with a fork and a knife.


Change is manageable in very small bites,

Until it becomes a true “passage of rites”


Just making small changes, one thing at a time

Is a perfect end note for this post-Earth Day rhyme.
