When: Oct 21-Dec 9 (8 classes)
The Northfield Skating School and the Northfield Area Family YMCA have teamed up to provide more fun and fitness for adults!
Fun as it is, skating contributes directly to improving the most sought-after exercise goals: improved aerobic fitness, strength, endurance and body fat reduction.
Fast-paced skating has been proved to be just as aerobically beneficial as running; compared to cycling, an equal skating effort results in a better muscular workout for hips, thighs and shins. As long as you apply yourself to purposeful workouts with specific daily goals (as opposed to simply going through the motions), you are setting yourself up to enjoy the maximum possible benefits from fitness skating.
Who: Adults; Beginners Welcome!
Where: Northfield Ice Arena
When: Oct 21-Dec 9 (8 classes)
Jan 6-Mar 3, no class 2/3 (8 classes)
11-11:45am (coffee avail till 12:15)

I love parties (as too many of you well know) and I love books (duh). I especially love good books written by authors will local ties. So you know I won’t miss the bookish party River City Books is throwing this weekend. RCB will host a book-release party for Laura Goering, author of the children’s book “Whistling Wings,” at noon on Saturday, Sept. 27, at the store. Goering is a professor of Russian at Carleton College.
“Whistling Wings,” published by Sylvan Dell, known for its fictional tales with educational themes, is the story of Marcel, a young tundra swan, who is tired from the first half of winter migration. One thousand miles is a long way to fly — too long for Marcel — so he hides in the rushes to stay behind while his parents and the flock continue south. But with the lake nearly frozen over, he soon realizes he is not cut out for life on ice. Other animals offer advice about how to survive the winter, but their ways of living aren't right for the swan. Hungry and scared, he falls asleep only to be awakened by a big surprise.
