Title: Transformations

Leaves are changing, breaking out in splendid colors. How about you? Are there changes you are yearning to make in your life? Join us for an evening of exploring where we have been and where we want to go. We will identify the barriers to our own transformation and change, and have the opportunity to create new ways of taking on the many roles in our lives so we, too, can allow our colors to shine as clearly as maple leaves in the sun.

Directions to Boughton Place: DO NOT USE YOUR GPS once you turn south onto Kisor Road as many of them misdirect you. Kisor Road is one street east of the Hess Gas Station located on Rt 299 at the corner of New Paltz Road and Rt 299 right past the border of New Paltz and Highland. You will turn left onto Kisor if you are coming from the east (Highland, Poughkeepsie, Port Ewen) , or turn right if you are coming from the west (NYS Thurway, New Paltz). Once you make your turn onto Kisor, Boughton Place is the first driveway on the left. The theater entrance is the first door you come to. Go beyond the building to park and walk back to the first door.
