The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
If summer could talk, it would brag about how every year, it gets to spend its final days at the Washington Town and Country Fair. The all-ages festival combines the quaintness of the old-fashioned with the marvels of modern times, much like Charlotte's Web, but with more monster trucks. Showing off the "town" part of Town and Country, classic rock and country stars perform on the main stage, while the Midway twinkles and rumbles with carnival rides. The fair shows its "country" side with livestock pavilions, farm mechanic exhibits, and Agriland, where wee ones leans the joys of farm living while participating in pig chases. Adults get to cheer on monster truck rallies, tractor pulls, bull riders, UTV, and motocross races.
Sullivan Country Club's original course?built in 1954?was just 9 holes, but it has since blossomed into an 18-hole course, and it has spent the last two decades as a full, 6,174-yard championship course. Though the course layout has changed, the natural surroundings have not. Hundreds of trees still surround golfers at every turn, ready to gently ensnare wayward shots to add to their ball collections. A winding creek also accompanies golfers for much of the round, and a 3.5-acre lake sits astride the long fairway of the 17th hole.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,174 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69.6 from the back tees * Course slope of 123 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard
Since his teenage years, Anton Steinhart's altruistic spirit has always pushed him to find new ways of giving back. After a stint in Bolivia teaching women how to operate sewing machines and sell their wares in the United States, he returned stateside seeking his next charitable venture. Anton drew upon previous experience in the wine industry and founded Wines for Humanity in 2007, which has raised more than $1.5 million for families on the brink of homelessness and other charities. As attendees sample seven wines culled from award-winning international vineyards, expert advisors discuss how to taste each pour, suggest food and wine pairings, and gently kiss their favorite corks.
