Tai Chi @ Greenbelt Nature Center (in Blood Root Valley) 

Mar 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation thru movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.

About “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies”: It seems that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies — all but the Teen Titans. Robin is bound and determined to remedy that situation by becoming a star instead of a sidekick. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their hearts, the Teen Titans head to Hollywood to fulfill their dreams. Things soon go awry, however, when a supervillain plans to take over the planet — putting the very fate of the young heroes on the line. Rated PG | Running Time: 1h 24min

This program is made possible, in part, by support with public funds from the New York City Department of Small Business Services through its Neighborhood 360 program, created to identify, develop and launch commercial revitalization projects in partnership with local stakeholders; the New York State Regional Economic Development Council through the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council. Staten Island Arts also receives support through the generosity of the Lily Auchincloss Foundation and its individual and member donors. #cinemaconnex #film #connectingculturesi #Neighborhood360

Guyon Tavern Benefit Concert @ Historic Richmond Town 

Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

March 16, 2019 7:30-10:00PM
Located at the Third County Courthouse
Tickets: $40/person

Historic Richmond Town’s Guyon Tavern, located along Richmond Road, has been a cornerstone of the Staten Island community for nearly two hundred years. It’s home to the renowned Tavern Concert Series. In past years, performers and audience members praised the acoustics and the ambiance of the candle-lit building and the cozy wood stove.

This year an automobile accident left the Guyon Tavern badly damaged. All programming, including the Tavern Concert Series, has been postponed until the necessary $60,000 is raised and repairs made. While the organization is actively pursuing an insurance claim, we are eager to commence the restoration of our beloved building.

To help bring back this community asset, a benefit concert will be held at Historic Richmond Town in the Third County Courthouse on Saturday, March 16, 2019, featuring the music of Irish Stout. All tickets sales from this event will enable Historic Richmond Town to make the crucial repairs to the Tavern.

We look forward to restoring the building in time for the 2020 Tavern Concert Series.
_________________________________________________________________

Built as a grocery store around 1819, the Guyon Tavern has served the village of Richmond as countless businesses, most recently Puntillo’s Barber Shop. Acquired by Borough Historian Loring McMillen and the Staten Island Historical Society in the early 1950s, this historic structure has undergone two waves of restoration and has been used as an educational tool during thousands of school and public programs.
