What have we been up to?

Exercise – Every Monday and Thursday from 9:30 to 10:30, Anne Parsons leads an exercise group. The exercises work on balance and target different parts of the body. Some are done standing, while others are done in a chair. (Never down on the floor!) Weights are used for some and, on Thursdays, a few exercises with resistance bands are incorporated. There is a great group of about 8-10 regular attendees. Come join us!

Coffee Hour – Also on Mondays and Thursdays from 10:45 to 11:45 (except for the first Thursday of each month), a coffee hour follows exercise. You can stay after exercise or come just for the coffee hour. Share a warm beverage, a tasty treat and good conversation.

Monthly Luncheon – At noon on the third Tuesday of each month (except for August), the COA hosts a potluck luncheon. We provide a few main dishes, and ask everyone to contribute a side dish or dessert. Prior to the luncheon, nurse Mary Kane (from the health center) is here for a blood pressure clinic. Following the luncheon, there is either an educational presentation or a performance (usually music, although this month will see a one-act play). The food is delicious, the presentations are informative, and the entertainment is astounding.
