Baltimore Happiness Club
The Baltimore Happiness Club (BHC), a drop-in support group for anyone who wishes to increase their level of happiness, has been meeting weekly for 1.5 years.
BHC is based on Gateway to Happiness, by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin, and on the premise that happiness is a skill that can be learned. Whereas some people are “born happy,” most of us are not always naturally happy, but we can learn to be.
BHC is an interactive, lively group that uses Rabbi Pliskin and other happiness teachers as sources. Through simple exercises, discussion, and sharing real-life situations, we learn to increase and improve our happiness skills and equip ourselves to be more resilient and, through taking charge of our happiness, to take charge of our lives.

GOLDA’S BALCONY
April 10-27, 2014

Voices From A Changing Middle East Festival

By William Gibson
Starring Tovah Feldshuh
Broadway Production supervised by Scott Schwartz

A riveting portrait of one of the great women of our time, Golda Meir, Golda’s Balcony is the final work from Tony® Award-winning playwright William Gibson (The Miracle Worker, Two for the Seesaw), and an award-winning smash that, in 15 sold-out months on Broadway, set the record for the longest one-woman show in Broadway history.

From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of the Knesset, the story of Golda Meir is the story of the state of Israel in the 20th century. Starring four-time Tony® and two-time Emmy® Award-nominated TOVAH FELDSHUH, this one-woman tour de force promises to be a thrilling, deeply moving and unforgettable night of theatre.

“An incisive, powerfully-varied portrait of a remarkable woman!” – Time Out NY

Alzheimer’s Association Annual Dementia Conference: Making Connections

As the Baltimore area’s premier dementia conference for healthcare professionals, caregivers and those living with early-stage dementia, this comprehensive event will feature expert speakers on research and practical information on Alzheimer’s care.

Keynote speaker will be Gerry Sandusky – long-time play-by-play voice of the Baltimore Ravens, sports director at WBAL-TV and noted authority on communication, motivation, perception and change — whose compelling book, Forgotten Sundays, will be released Apr. 22.

“My father, John Sandusky, a long-time NFL coach, suffered from Alzheimer’s at the end of his life. The book, published by Running Press, deals with the value of a name, the personal side of life in sports, and the impact Alzheimer’s disease has on millions of people and their families,” Sandusky said. “There are universal themes that are woven throughout that everyone can relate to.”

After sharing lessons he learned from experiences with his father, Sandusky will sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase.

His presentation will be followed by a plenary session with Judah Ronch, PH. D. – dean of the Erickson School at University of Maryland Baltimore County and a nationally renowned expert on improving the treatment and mental well-being of elders.

Admission to Making Connections is $35 for caregivers and $95 for professionals. For more information about the event or to register, visit alz.org/maryland, call 1.800.272.3900 or email jsample@alz.org.

The conference’s afternoon sessions will include a caregiver panel, as well as presentations on family conflict, advocating for your loved one, research and public policy, among other topics related to Alzheimer’s disease, which now affects 5.4 million people.
