Chances are, if you live with anxiety you’re already stressed about when you’ll get your decorations up, how you’ll find the perfect gifts, if you’ll get that holiday bonus you’re dreaming of, or how you’re going to manage this year’s family drama, I mean dinner. The demands you’re feeling in your mind are rapidly exceeding your ability to cope, and that equals stress.
The good news is, by incorporating a few positive coping strategies, you can find ways to meet the season’s demands without driving up your stress levels. Quite simply, coping strategies are personally-designed, creative solutions to help deal with all the stressors that arise. Being proactive now will ensure you’re feeling more joy later.

In an effort to minimize waste, Bolinas Community Center is excited to have just launched a new reusable cup program for events, with a new stock of reusable cups to be kept on sight.
The Borg family has donated 480 durable, BPA-free, food-grade Steelys cups for use (and reuse) at the Community Center, in both 16 oz and 12 oz cup sizes. Each cup has the BCC logo laser engraved on it, as well as the zero waste message “REDUCE, REUSE, RETURN.”
The intention of the program is to cut waste by offering reusable Steelys cups that can be cleaned and reused endlessly for beverage service at all of our events.
We have launched the program on the honor system, where drinks are served in the steel cups, which can refilled for the guest throughout the event. We ask guests to return their steel cups to BCC at the end of the event, so they can be cleaned and reused at the next event.
We are now getting some Steelys cups for sale as well with the BCC logo in black, which we anticipate will be available for sale starting in mid-December for the Winter Faire. Cups will be sold at $10 a piece.
A BIG THANK YOU TO JOHN BORG AND FAMILY FOR THE DONATION!!
