"Situational Awareness 101 / Stun & Run Physical Defenses”, a workshop presented by TBTN Tucson in partnership with ThinkSafe Seminars and the American Institute of Kenpo
This 90-minute interactive class will highlight how to avoid or respond to dangerous situations, as well as provide a few basic “Stun & Run” physical defenses. Topics include strategies for recognizing and avoiding violence before it happens; trusting your instincts; preparing responses for potential dangers (rather than reacting when it’s too late). We will also address how to physically defend yourself when needed using the natural weapons you already have at all times, and targeting the best parts of the body to disable and discourage an attacker.

Line Dancing
1-Wall Line Dances
Zoom now available This line dance class is for all ages and abilities. There are no turns and all steps are done facing the front wall. As with other line dances, each person dances by themself with the dancers arranged in rows (lines), all facing the same direction. The dances consist of a sequence of moves that are repeated throughout the song. The instructor cues the upcoming moves so memorizing the sequence is not required. No previous dance experience is necessary. The details of each step in a sequence will be taught and practiced before dancing to music. Usually, each dance will be danced first to a slower song and then again to a faster one. The line dances taught will have 3 to 8 steps in the sequence. All dances will be done facing forward only (one wall). However, options will be provided for those who might want the challenge of adding turns. Most of the dances taught are popular country line dances. However, they have been modified to take the turns out. Usually, the country music is replaced by upbeat popular music, both new and old. Singing or humming along is an option. This class is for those who meet any of the following criteria: 1) are new to dance or line dance 2) would like to “keep it simple” while dancing 3) enjoy dancing in a group 4) would like to line dance to a variety of music (not just country). This class is a great way to get some dance exercise while having fun! Taught by Trudy Sherman NOTE: Class size is currently limited to 10 people Be sure to call or register ahead of time to reserve your spot PLEASE honor your RSVP.

13th Annual “Keep Our Planet Neat, Recycle Your Car Seat”
Has your child outgrown their seat? Is it expired? Has it been in an accident?... Don’t throw it out – RECYCLE IT! NARPRO (Network of Auto Repair Professionals) is collecting old, expired, and damaged car seats which volunteers will take apart for proper recycling. Car seats don’t last forever, and over time their components will break down, especially in the hot Arizona sun. Older car seats or those that have been involved in an accident may not have visible damage, but they should not be used. This annual event helps those with older, expired, or damaged car seats get rid of them in an environmentally friendly way, by keeping them out of vehicles and landfills. Do you have an old or damaged child car seat? NARPRO wants to help recycle it! Anyone can drop off car seats that need to be recycled at one of the participating Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals shops from now until April 16th, 2021. Find a participating NARPRO location at On April 17th Peoria Police, NARPRO shop owners and volunteers will be dismantling the old car seats. They will recycle the plastic, metal and fabric components separately. For example, elements of the fabric, padding, and straps can be used in animal shelters. Quilted fabric becomes bedding or chew toys for the animals. Long straps make free leashes. Clean Polystyrene foam (rigid foam) from seats can be recycled into an Earth Friendly Block ™. This yearly recycling project will take place at S & S Tire Shop and Auto Repair in Peoria from 8:00-12:00. NARPRO (Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals): The Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals (NARPRO) helps car owners find skilled and honest car repair shops. NARPRO only recommends independent, family-owned, full-service auto repair shops that have passed 26 rigorous tests. Visit to find recommended shops near work or home. NARPRO is the easiest way to find an honest mechanic in the Valley.
