Laugh for the Health of It Luncheon Presented by the Friends of the Enfield Library

Friends of the Enfield Library will present a Lunch program called "Laugh for the Health of it".  The program creates healthy lifestyles through laughter.

Participants will learn a systematic method of chuckles, chortles, giggling and guffawing that promises to help reduce stress, prevent hardening of the attitudes and contribute to world peace. The laughs will be provided by Mr. Trevor Smith of Blue Sky Consulting.

The Friends will be providing lunch because we want to show you how great our library is.

There is nothing to buy. All you need to do is eat and laugh.
