Tai chi classes
Tai chi is the most practiced form of exercise in the world. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Referred to by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," tai chi provides research supported healing and support for those with arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, and back and spinal problems, as well as reduces stress and increases strength, mobility, balance and endurance. But don't let the gentle moves fool you; thirty minutes of tai chi burns the same amount of calories as thirty minutes of brisk walking.
2016 sessions now available for registration! Call 765-325-2940 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. About Tai Chi and class sessions >>
Farmers' markets (seasonal)
Market at Hague
Saturdays, May to October, 8 a.m. to noon

Formerly Binford Farmers' Market, the Market at Hague brings the best from Indiana farms and gardens to our community with over 80 vendors with deep roots in Indiana, including farms, nurseries, bakeries, wineries, meat vendors, cheese makers, specialty food products and artisan crafts.
The second Saturday of each month is “Artisan Saturday” when local artisan vendors add to the festive atmosphere with their hand made products. You will find a wide variety of products including jewelry, cards, kitchen ware and table top accessories, fine all natural lotions and soaps, creative crocheted and knitted items and much more.
Join us all summer long at this unique "agri"cultural community festival – a gathering place for neighbors, friends old and new, and family. The market is sponsored by Community Health Network, Community Hospital North and many area businesses. It’s run by volunteers with Binford Redevelopment & Growth (BRAG). Please note there are strict health and safety rules for all vendors and well-behaved dogs are welcome. The market also supports the SNAP program.
