    - April 29th, 2017 - 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
    In the Historic Woodstock Square
    112 N. Benton St.
    Woodstock, IL. 60098

    World Tai Chi & QiGong Day began in Kansas City, Missouri in 1998 and is now in its 17th year with over 70 nations participating. On the last Saturday of April each year, this multi-national “healing wave” of people moving and breathing in harmony begins at 10 AM in New Zealand and spreads from time zone to time zone, finally concluding in Hawaii.

    MoonWillow Tai Chi, The Woodstock Wellness Team and Young Masters Martial Arts & Fitness Studio will join this wave on April 29th, 2017, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM in the historic Woodstock Square. This event will offer, demonstrations, information and a free Tai Chi class for all participants.

    The celebration will end with a Healing Circle then conclude in Young Masters studios in the Woodstock Square Mall for tours and refreshments.

    Members of the Wellness team will be on hand with demonstrations and educational exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public. (In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to MoonWillow Tai Chi’s studios indoors)

    Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese health exercise that combines focused breath and slow martial arts movements. It is considered “healing movement for every body” because it is a gentle and relaxing experience that is accessible to most people regardless of physical condition (there are even classes especially adapted to individuals in wheelchairs). Benefits of Tai Chi include improved balance, posture, bone density, blood pressure, sleep, digestion, and immunity. It also reduces chronic pain and improves cardiovascular and nervous system disorders.

    For more information on Tai Chi and the World Tai Chi & QiGong Day event, contact Allison Deputy of MoonWillow at (847) 458-0377 or moonwillowtc@gmail.com or visit click for details. You may also wish to visit click for details and click for details

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    - The McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society hosts Diana Kenney who will present "Over Here& Over There: She Served Our Country." WW1 was a time of great patriotism in the United States. When the U.S. entered the war in April 1917, men rushed to register their names for the first selective service in United States history. And the women of our country were eager to do their part too.

    Across our nation, and across McHenry County, women participated in the war effort domestically “Over Here” as well as near the European battlefields that were “Over There”.

    Join Crystal Lake Historical Society president, Diana Kenney, as she shares the stories and sacrifices of women from McHenry County and how they served our nation during WW1

    The meeting will be held at The Pointe, 5650 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake, IL 60014 (next to Target) at 7 pm Thursday, May 11, 2017.

    - Wine has been around for centuries, and there are some health benefits to drinking a glass! Moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL.

    And a glass of wine won’t add to your waist line. According to Delish.com, a five ounce glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free.

    So...Raise your glass and celebrate the day!

    GET READY GURNEE, IL, BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO BE AMAZED! CIRQUE ITALIA IS COMING WITH A BRAND NEW SHOW AND TONS OF EXCITEMENT!

    Cirque Italia is a unique show in every sense. After five years of consolidation, a rigorous casting selection, and over 1,000 performances nationwide; this spectacular production has become the greatest version of a “traveling circus”. Cirque Italia is proud to have developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most innovative shows to be staged in the US.

    Conceived by Mr. Manuel Rebecchi, and meticulously directed and produced by Chanté DeMoustes, Cirque Italia is a creative mix of the best elements of entertainment and technology. A “never-seen-before” production that combines acrobatics, dance, contortion, and even high-performance BMX and roller-skating. All performances are done in ways that push the physical boundaries of human abilities, which leaves audiences amazed and astonished.

    Performers from all over the world are united under the magic spiral of the white and blue big top. They merge their extraordinary selection of skills and put together a stimulating spin on the industry by embracing the element of water. Cirque Italia has managed to find a delicate balance between the poetic and expressive power of the human body and the versatility and fluidity of water as an artistic scenario.

    With a magnetism that draws you into your deepest fantasies, the water circus offers two hours of high-end entertainment. Mermaids and dinosaurs make dreamy appearances while awakening the inner child within you. Laser lights and bubbles act as interdimensional movers. Aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists take the human body to the next level – one you never thought possible!

    You may think that such a sophisticated production is out of your budget, but Cirque Italia is committed to bringing Las Vegas to your own hometown. They bring an experience and make it not only memorable, but affordable with very competitive prices and special offers.

    Cirque Italia also contributes to the modernization of the performing arts and the circus industry by abiding by a strict animal free policy. The company takes a leading stance in offering quality entertainment beyond the use of animals.

    For more information visit click for details and make sure to check all our social media accounts. Tickets can be purchased now starting at $10.00-$70.00 depending on availability. Cirque Italia offers one free child admission with every full priced paying adult ticket in levels 2 or 3. This offer cannot be combined with any other offers, discounts or deals.
