Laugh Free and Live!

Join us at the Library on Thursday, January 18th, at 7pm

for lots of laughter to help brighten up your winter!

The New Ipswich Library, sponsored by the Stearns-Burton Lecture Committee, welcomes Saundra Maisey, Certified Laughter Leader, to discuss laughter wellness. Saundra is a Certified Laughter Leader (CLL) with the World Laughter Tour, based out of Columbus, OH, and has held that title since completing training in August of 2005.

Saundra will provide a background on laughter therapy and information about why laughter is good for your physical and mental state. The program will last for about an hour with people up and out of their seats to move around, combining laughter with physical activity. No experience is required. You don’t need to be funny or know any jokes to join us for a fun night out.


5 Things Laughter Does:

We hope to see you there!

This event is free, but a donation for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville is always appreciated.
