I have been told that spring is here but I have my doubts with the crazy weather we have been having. However our herb garden has finally been cleaned up and is almost ready for planning of new herbs, which will enhance the next six months of exciting meals at the Senior Center. I am still looking for some help for planting, cultivating, weeding and harvesting. I want to give a special thanks to Pat & Walk Przebiegic for their donation of a $100 gift card to Swanson’s to help provide plants for the herb garden. What a lovely gift.

What is a Matter of Balance Class?

A Matter of Balance Class is more than an exercise class. Many seniors experience a fear of falling and restrict their activities for that reason. The class helps in managing concerns about falls and emphasizes practical strategies to reduce this fear and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable; set realistic goals to increase activity; change their environment to reduce fall risk factors; and exercise to increase strength and balance.

These classes are led by two trained facilitators, Toshiko Aramaki and Heidi Mai. The next scheduled session will be September 1st through October 24th. The classes meet every Wednesday from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., for 8 weeks. Class includes: 1 hour of discussion, and 1 hour of exercise; breaks are included. These classes are free of charge, but you have to preregister to attend. You need to call or come by the Senior Center to register. Do not put off getting registered, because class size is limited and it fills up quickly.
