    United Nations’ Interfaith Harmony Week
    Four‐Part Series on Islam

    Thursday, February 4th at 6:00 P.M.
    GREENFIELD, MA – The United Nations has asked religious communities to dedicate the first week of February to learning about other religious traditions to promote awareness and understanding, tolerance and respect, cooperation and support. In light of the recent rise of intolerance and hatred and discrimination towards Muslims, many people are uncritically accepting the false claims of Islamophobia.

    We have all seen how the emotional appeals of leaders and politicians can easily manipulate people with distorted information and stereotypes.
    The United Nation’s Secretary ‐ General Ban Ki-moon says, “World Interfaith Harmony Week celebrates the principles of tolerance and respect for the other that are deeply rooted in the world’s major religions. The observance is also a summons to solidarity in the face of those who spread misunderstanding and mistrust.”

    The Rev. Corey J. Sanderson, minister of Second Congregational Church of Greenfield and President of the Interfaith Council of Franklin County, has spent a decade teaching world religions at the college level and working with a variety of religious communities on interfaith projects and programs.
    Rev. Sanderson says, “So often when we lack direct engagement with people of different faiths, traditions, or ethnicities, there is a gap that exists between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ All too often this gap gets filled with ignorance, fear, or stereotypes. In hosting this event, in partnership with the Islamic Center of Western Massachusetts, we can fill that gap with compassion, understanding, and solidarity.”

    On Thursday, February 4th Dr. Mohammad Saleem Bajwa, member of the Board of Directors at the Islamic Center of Western Massachusetts, will be speaking at Second Congregational Church of Greenfield about Islam’s long tradition of peace and social justice, interfaith harmony, and what it is like to a Muslim today.

    This Thursday night 6:00 PM event is one night in a larger four‐part series the church is holding on Islam. On Monday, February 1st and Tuesday, February 2nd, Rev. Sanderson will be showing a film with a Q&A guided discussion and teaching some of the foundations of Islam. Both Monday and Tuesday night classes will be in the downstairs Community Room of the church and will begin at 6:00 PM. On Friday, February 5th, Rev. Sanderson will be leading a group to the mosque in West Springfield for the Friday noon prayer service and then staying for lunch and meeting with the Imam. If you are interested in the Friday field trip to the mosque, please RSVP by Wednesday, February 3rd so they can plan for food and we can make sure to wait for you. For more information or to sign up, please contact office administrator Heather Strader at office@greenfieldsecondchurch.com or 413‐774-4355. These events are all free and open to any and all.

    Second Congregational Church is located in center of Greenfield, on the common next to Town Hall, at 16 Court Square, Greenfield, MA 01301.

    This is NOT the potato stamping project you did in kindergarten, I promise you that!! We will work with potatoes, an that is where the similarities end! Using exacto knives, sharp nails, and linoleum cutters we will carve our own designs into potato halves. Then, using acrylic paint and several different brushes, carefully paint each potato for a unique valentine!
    Due to the use of sharp tools, this project is best for children age 9 and up. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

By the end of the night, judges will choose three winners: First place will receive a grand prize of $250, 2nd place $100, and 3rd $50. The cost to enter will be $5.
    To enter the competition, we ask all who are interested to send in a video audition of them singing one song to valleyvoicecomp@gmail.com by February 15. $5 to enter, and a link to a PayPal will be sent to them within 24 hours where they can pay, or send us an email if you’d prefer a different payment method.

    Ski Butternut is one of 120 ski/snowboard resorts across the country that will host a Guinness Book of World Records event in hopes of setting a joint record for the Largest Ski or Snowboard lesson. Lessons take place at 10 a.m. on Friday January 8, 2016 and the event serves as the kick-off for the snow sports industry’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.

    No reservations are required but if you have questions you can call 413-528-2000 x150. The beginner lesson package includes rental equipment for the day, a first-timer 1.5hr lesson and a beginner’s area lift ticket.

    Plan to arrive at the Ski Butternut Rental building, conveniently located on the right side of the main parking lot, by 9AM at the latest. Dress warm and try to bring the following: (a warm base layer (upper and lower), warm winter jacket and pants, mittens or gloves and goggles or sunglasses). A helmet, if desired, can be rented for the day at the mountain. Wear a pair of medium weight wool socks – not cotton – during your time on the slopes. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will need to sign the rental form.”

    At the mountain, participants will fill out an online rental form and sign a participation enrollment form. They’ll then be issued ski or snowboard boots at the rental counter, then Rossignol ski equipment or a Burton Snowboard. Skiers can pick up poles as they exit the rental building. All equipment will be sized correctly for the participant’s height and ability. After getting their equipment and moving outside the guests will be assigned an instructor for their lesson, which starts at 10a.m. After the lesson the instructor will give the new skier or snowboarder directions on where to go to practice more and what to do next. They’ll also receive a “Return to Learn” envelope that gives them a discount on future lift, lesson and rental packages, valid the rest of this winter.

    You can’t have lollipops for breakfast! But today, Sylvie decides she’s going to break that rule, even if it means she has to make her own amazingly perfect lollipop from scratch. Come along as she and her trusty pet bird search for missing ingredients, wrestle with giant candy machines, and get lost in a magical pop-up cookbook.
