- FUN FEATURES
Okay, so the weather outside is expected to be frightful the next few days. Well, maybe not frightful, but compared to the mild winter the region has experienced, any snow seems like an event right now.
However, the roads will still be cleared and people will be looking for something to do. If that sounds like you, and you haven't filled up your appointment book for the weekend just yet, check out some of these local happenings:
*Friday, Feb. 10, and Saturday, Feb. 11
Marriage Conference with the Marriage Doctor
1146 Waterbury Road
Friday, 7 to 9 p.m.
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
If you're interested in getting some professional advice on how to cultivate a more committed and loving marriage, then this weekend might be for you. Dr. Douglas Weiss, a nationally-known clinical psychologist who has appeared on Oprah, Dr. Phil, Good Morning America, and other shows, will be at Cornerstone Church Friday and Saturday offering advice for couple. If interested in attending, call (203) 272-5083.

Origami Basics Workshop

If your little one is looking for a way to indulge his or her artistic side, check out Artsplaces this weekend where instructors will teach eager young students origami.

Sunday Showcase Featuring "Something Extra"

If you want to hear women’s a capella at its best, then head to the Library this weekend.

All ages are welcome to attend this free concert.
