Evening Yoga for All Ages at Beech, Collection 'Monday', Electric Car Introduced, Hoops at 5:30 PM

Events occurring in Belmont on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

• While the calendar says it's Tuesday, the garbage pickup schedule says it's Monday as trash collection has been pushed back a day. So Tuesday people, keep your collection canisters in the garage or backyard.

• For Belmont residents interested in an evening yoga class, join Susan Harris for an all ages evening yoga class being held at the Beech Street Center, 266 Beech St., from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. on Tuesdays. This is a non-Council on Aging class held at the Beech. Harris, a registered yoga teacher and associate professor of nutrition at Tufts University, will conduct an Iyengar-inspired class which practices yoga postures slowly and with attention to alignment and safety, adapted to the abilities and needs of individual students. Non-seniors, beginners and experienced are welcome. You don’t need to be flexible. The workout will be done with bare feet; mats and props are provided. Cost is $15 per class. For more information, call Susan at 617-407-0816.

• You might be the owner of a Prius, a Volt or even a Tesler, but you have nothing on a group of Belmont High School students building their own electric car out back of the school. Learn more about these modern Henry Fords and their effort to make it to Texas this summer at tonight's School Committee meeting at approximately 8 p.m. at the Chenery Middle School or watch it on Belmont Media Center's cable or online.

• Is your hearing becoming less effective? Learn about both common and cutting edge technology to help you hear better and get answers to questions from Jonathan O’Dell, the assistive technology manager at the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing who will talk about Assistive Hearing Devices at 1:15 p.m. at the Beech Street Center, 266 Beech St. He possesses both a wealth of knowledge and a good sense of humor, as those who attended his popular session last year on hearing loss will attest. 

• The Belmont High School Boys' Basketball team brings its 7-2 record to the friendly vinyl court of the Wenner (Field House) as they play host to Wilmington High (1-8) at 5:30 p.m.
