Bloomsburg Children’s Museum Dedicating ‘All Abilities Nights’ in Memory of Erica Schultz
The Bloomsburg Children’s Museum is dedicating their quarterly All Abilities Nights in memory of Erica Shultz, a former employee who was senselessly slain last month.
Shultz worked as a Museum Assistant in 2013 and 2014 while she was still in high school. She regularly helped with programs and everyday tasks in the Museum.
“Erica was always happy to help in any way she could,” Dr. Ginny Weibel, Museum Director said. “She especially loved helping the children with art projects and pretend play.” Shultz, who was autistic, used her position with the Museum to gain real-world working experience. “Erica was a valued employee and contributed greatly to our mission,” Weibel said. “She was a beam of sunshine whenever she was here. Many of us stayed connected with her when she left the Museum.”
All Abilities Nights at the Museum is a quarterly free program at the Museum. During the program, families with any member who faces a challenge are invited to tour the Museum and participate in special crafts and activities at no cost for their group.
“We started All Abilities Nights to offer a time when the Museum is a bit quieter and easier to navigate than during normal operating hours,” Weibel said. “We want families to have a relaxed experience and see that we have many friendly, adaptive spaces in hopes that those families come back again and again.”
The Museum is adding a plaque in the lobby indicating that All Abilities Night at the Museum is dedicated to preserving Shultz’s memory and the contributions she made to the organization.
The next All Abilities Night at the Museum is scheduled for Friday, January 22 from 3-7 p.m. There is no cost and reservations are not needed.

Curves Introduces Virtual Group Coaching Option for MyCurves On Demand
Curves, one of the largest chains of fitness clubs for women in the world, is celebrating the first birthday of their at-home video-on-demand program, MyCurves On Demand, with the introduction of their new Virtual Group Coaching membership. The new MyCurves On Demand + Virtual Group Coaching combines an effective at-home fitness routine with the support and guidance of a live, virtual Curves coach to keep members accountable for achieving their health and fitness goals. Virtual Group Coaching sessions also create a fitness community that provides the connections and support members need as they make lifestyle changes.
“When COVID restrictions closed local Curves gyms around the world in the spring of 2020, MyCurves On Demand, which launched in January 2020, helped Curves members transition from their in-club gym experience to an at-home fitness routine,” said Krishea Holloway, President and CEO of Curves North America and Oceania. “Curves understands what women need in a fitness program, and we knew that, for many members, taking part in lifestyle coaching sessions led by a Curves Coach was key to their success. Curves new Virtual Group Coaching option adds that weekly human connection, providing members with both a coach – with the accountability that provides – and a community of other women working to live healthier, stronger lives.”
In addition to the introduction of Virtual Group Coaching, Curves is celebrating the one-year birthday of MyCurves On Demand with prizes and cash giveaways. Members in the Bloomsburg area who join MyCurves On Demand between January 13-February 13, through Curves of Bloomsburg, PA or online, will be eligible for a chance to win prizes including Curves merchandise and cash gift cards. For more details, follow the Curves Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Curves/.
MyCurves On Demand streaming classes mimic the in-club experience using a resistance band (provided with most memberships) in place of the equipment found in clubs and are led by actual Curves Coaches, not fitness models – a distinction that separates Curves from other fitness brands. Curves members can stream their workout from any smart device. To view a sneak peek of a MyCurves On Demand workout, visit https://www.curves.com/mycurves-on-demand.
“We know everyone has choices when it comes to fitness. Determining the right fitness routine for yourself is key to a stronger you,” said Holloway. “Curves on Demand introduced many women to a new fitness option from an established, trusted brand, but it’s important to remember that not everyone who posts a workout video is a fitness expert. Curves members benefit from years of experience, our Science Advisory Board, and the 20+ years of research conducted at Texas A&M University that supports Curves’ programs. Our mission has always been to provide fun, fast, and safe programs to help women reach their health and fitness goals, and our programs continue to get better, year after year.”
MyCurves On Demand + Virtual Group Coaching is available for women throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
