Handcrafted Soy Candles> Hosted by Full Circle Candles and Crabtree Farms of Chattanooga > Join Debbie of ‘Full Circle Candles’ for an evening of learning how to create handcrafted soy candles! Debbie’s Background: Debbie has been making soy candles for 6+ years. It started out as a hobby when she got inspired by the farmers’ markets and craft fairs she attended when she moved to Tennessee. Upon reflection, she realized pretty quickly that her breathing and sinuses were affected adversely when she burned store bought candles and thus wanted a healthier candle for her home. Through trial and error, she taught herself how to create her own candles and from there both a love and a career were born! About the Class: During this class, participants will learn how to create handcrafted soy candles. During the class, not only will participants create a candle to take home, they will also learn about the health benefits of using soy or beeswax over the paraffin candles typically found in stores. Debbie will have available pure essential oils and decorations to enhance the candles that are created during the class > Non-Members $45, Members $40 > 5:00 pm > Register Here

Theatre Centre presents “Boeing Boeing”> Hosted by Chattanooga Theatre Centre > A riotous farce that enjoyed hit revivals in London and New York, BOEING BOEING is touching down in Chattanooga! It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: an apartment in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses, all from competing airlines and all engaged to him without knowing about the other. Ingeniously, he’s arranged it so that their layovers don’t overlap, keeping each woman on a perfect rotation in and out of his life. Until, that is, the airlines begin employing the speedy Boeing aircraft, cutting down travel times and creating a nightmare scenario in which all three are in town at the same time. In the calm before the storm, Bernard’s friend Robert comes to town and is thrust into the position of helping housekeeper Berthe cover for Bernard. Until, of course, the ruse comes crashing down. So fasten your seatbelts … it’s going to be a bumpy ride! > 8:00 pm > Buy Tickets Here
