“The greatest lesson I learned from my experiences making this film is that my pursuit of happiness is not about me. It’s about us…”
Award-winning director, Roko Belic
How can we bring more happiness into our daily lives and why is that so important, especially today?
This 75-minute documentary about the pursuit of happiness shows how the most unlikely people may actually be the happiest of all.
We’ll also show a brief interview with Executive Director, Tom Shadyak, and a special short feature on living at the Findhorn Community in Scotland.
Our afternoon screening will be followed by audience intermingling and snacks… Please join us, and bring a friend!

(DVDs are not categorized)
The Transition Albany Library currently lives on Madison Street in Albany and contains a wide collection of books and DVDs in various categories. You need a library ticket to borrow items.
The Books range from How To books that give guidance on everything from fixing a shelf to building with cob, books on Health (staying and getting well without pharmaceuticals), Inner Transition (how to stay balanced while things slowly fall apart), lots of books on Urban Agriculture/Gardening, and plenty of classics on how we got ourselves into this mess (Problems/Solutions) and some of the not always new ideas that are coming to the fore to help us through (New/Old Ideas).
Most of the items have been loaned to the Library by individuals and we ask that you treat them with respect. Book loans are for three weeks and DVDs you can keep for one week (extra brownie points for inviting neighbors over to watch with you). There is no charge for borrowing but if the item is overdue we will expect a financial donation.
Please contact the librarian at transitionalbanyca [at] gmail.com to get a library ticket and/or find the address. Opening hours are pretty extensive.
Join in a day dedicated to enhancing fruit production in our food forest. We will plant and transplant several apple and pear trees into their new homes as espaliered trees. We will put in new berry plants.

Bring for the potluck: your own plate/bowl, utensils, and napkin and some food to share
Diverse Housing in Albany?
By Catherine Sutton and Alexa Hauser
Albany is required to plan for more housing of every kind, but especially for people with very low income. As founding members of the community-based Diverse Housing Working Group, the two of us bring our Transition Town perspective to helping to establish housing policies for the next eight years. We invite you to join in, expressing what you would like to see and helping to bring into existence housing in Albany for those most in need of a safe and comfortable place to live.
