With the summer behind us, Garrison Concierge is preparing for the fall, winter and even spring with new ideas, events, discounts and small contests. Check out the announcements below for the next few months ahead from Garrison Concierge!



For starters, the Deep Heap Circle, which is a monthly support group held at the Desmond-Fish Library, will have another “meet & greet” session on Wednesday, September 5th to bring in a fresh start for the fall with anyone who cares to try out the group. As mentioned to current group members in previous sessions, there will be a full schedule of themes for each Deep Heap Circle support group session between September of 2018 and April of 2019. The full schedule is listed below. 
: NOTES : 
> Dates below are subject to change, according to the library schedule, holidays and/or inclement weather issues.
> Not every session is on the first Wednesday of the month, due to holiday date interference and/or client scheduling of Garrison Concierge.
> Deep Heap sessions are strictly one hour from 1:30pm – 2:30pm and free of charge.
> Please note that June & July of 2019 will be summer break months from Deep Heap sessions.

*CLOSED PRESENTATION:  A private program for the 8th grade students of the Garrison Union Free School

READY KIDS: UNDERSTANDING ORGANIZING: [A parent/teacher & child joint participation class!] It’s quite helpful for kids be well organized at home, at school and at any of the many extracurricular activities that they may choose to become involved with. It can be necessary for kids to understand organizing and how it differs from cleaning up a messy room. It is also very important that parents and children realize the many types of organizing and how keeping certain things neat is not meant to squash creativity. As this is a parent and child class, much information will be covered about the importance of being well organized for medical reasons, school preparations and various types of emergencies. This program is suitable for any age group.
