Special Guests Spotlight Partnership at Trustee Meeting Feb. 6
How much do you know about the many partnerships that make Deerfield Township a great place to live? At this month's regular meeting of the township trustees, we'll welcome special guests from four organizations that showcase how unique collaborations can help enhance the quality of life for residents in our area. Representatives from Duke Energy, the Arts Alliance, Warren County Parks and the Humane Association of Warren County will be on hand to share details about their initiatives and some exciting upcoming events.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. and will take place at the Deerfield Township Administration Building at 4900 Parkway Drive. Everyone is welcome. Video and minutes also will be posted online afterward. To find out more, visit our website.
Deerfield Township once again has partnered with the Warren County Sheriff's Office to offer a self-defense workshop for women. In addition to building confidence and gaining an increased awareness of your surroundings, you'll learn practical tips on ways to avoid becoming the victim of a crime and get hands-on practice of techniques you can use to protect yourself against an attack.
The three-hour workshop is free for township residents ages 14 and up. There is a $5 fee for non-residents. Registration for the spring class opens TODAY, and spots are limited. To reserve your place, visit our website.
Looking for a thoughtful way to show a special loved one you care this Valentine's Day? Join the Arts Alliance on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at Snyder House in Cottell Park for the latest Art Bar event. Guest instructor Therese Holt will teach participants how to make dry, felted hearts to give as brooches, ornaments or other decorations. Your loved ones won't be able to resist your handmade, heartfelt (get it?) gift.
Art Bar events take place from 7 to 9 p.m. The cost is $25 per person, which includes snacks and all of your art supplies. You'll find more details online.
