The Summer Reading program is beginning to shape up. We have the dates: Wednesdays June3-July 8. For the first program we will meet at 10:00 a.m. The Dairy Association is bringing out their milking station (with a cow). The rest of the programs will be at 2:00. Look for more info closer to the time to register.

The Book Club is reading Ireland:a Novel by Frank Delaney. The meeting is March 12 at 11:00 a.m. at Ekklesia Coffee House. Please plan to join us. If you haven't read the book that's ok.

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity? You can always volunteer here, but if you want to get healthy while you volunteer the Humane Society is looking for people to come in and help walk dogs. You can set up a regular time or call about 30 minutes ahead and they will have a dog waiting for you.

Have a great weekend.

The Laugh Yoga class had a great turnout. There were 10-15 Senior Adults that showed up for the class. I could not make it because of a medical issue with my family so I can't give a whole lot of details. I plan to attend a Laugh Yoga workshop on April 1 at Harrison Regional Library. We may decide to make this a regular class for our Seniors.

This Wednesday at the Tot Spot we will be on the letter E. Come join us as we read, sing and learn. Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.

Don't forget the bookclub book for March...Ireland: a novel by Frank Delaney. The meeting will be March 12.

We had a really good turnout for the Tot Spot today. We talked about words that rhymed, Valentine's Day, and friends. We sang our songs and marched with sticks and made new friends. I hope all of you come back next week.

I know you have heard of the Connecting Families project for the military families. We have our Mac and if you know of anyone who needs to use this program please let them know that we are up and running. This is a program that allows families who have loved ones overseas to stay in contact with each other. There are some logistics that have to be worked out and each family will be different. If you have any questions just ask. I probably don't know the answer but can find it out.

Don't forget the Laugh Yoga class this Friday at 10:00 a.m. Please encourage any Senior Adult you know to attend.

Laugh Yoga class

We have all heard the phrase "laughter is the best medicine". On Friday February 13 at 10:00 we will have a laugh yoga class for the Senior Adults. I am not 100% sure what this will involve but I am looking forward to finding out. Becky at Harrison Regional Library will lead this group. There are several on staff there that are certified laugh yoga instructors (that's certified not certifiable :) ). If you know of a senior adult that would be interested, send them to library next Friday to get a good dose of laughter.
