The Noble Circle Project, a wellness program which benefits women in Dayton and the surrounding areas who have been diagnosed with cancer, will launch its fall program in September, 2009.
Offered at no cost to participants, the program offers women thriving beyond cancer the opportunity to explore complementary healing methods to enhance their cancer recovery and achieve significant gains in their overall well-being. The program is open to women diagnosed with any type of cancer and at any time in their journey with the disease.
The Noble Circle Project’s vision is to create an intimate and caring community for women with cancer that brings hope, inspiration, empowerment and healing. The retreat and classes focus on complementary healing methods that can be used in conjunction with traditional medical treatment. Participants will engage in whole foods nutrition classes including cooking demonstrations and shared meals, address the emotional issues related to cancer through a network of support, and experience the stress-reducing effects of practicing a form of gentle exercise and healing movement called qigong.
The fall program of The Noble Circle Project will kick-off with a weekend retreat September 11-13 followed by 10 weeks of Thursday evening classes which will be held at One Lincoln Park in Kettering. Enrollment is limited.

Wright Memorial Library will be closed through Sunday, Aug. 23. The temporary closure is needed because of the significant reduction in funding from the state of Ohio. Public libraries in Ohio are facing a 31 percent drop in the revenue from the state’s Public Library Fund. Wright Library will receive about $358,000 less from the state in 2009 than it received in 2008. The cuts will continue through 2010. Before this year, the library counted on the state for 80 percent of its annual revenue.
Patrons will be able to use the library’s web site and catalog during the closure, but staff will not be working, so requests for holds and interlibrary loans will not be processed until the library opens again at 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 24. Overdue fines will not be charged for the dates the library is closed for furlough. Patrons are encouraged to “stock up” on library materials the week before the furlough and hold onto them through the week the library is closed, rather than returning items in the book drops.
Wright Memorial Public Library is located at 1776 Far Hills Avenue in Oakwood. Questions? Call (937) 294-7171 for more information or visit their website at www.WrightLibrary.org.
