Jacki has added another day to our Fit for Seniors schedule. Join this active and social group at 9:45 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for a great 45 minute workout. This class will focus on increasing mobility, flexibility, balance and muscular strength and endurance. In conjunction with the class, The Christian Village offers free Blood Pressure checks on the first and third Wednesday’s of the month. A member of their staff is here from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Blood Pressure checks are available to any one who is interested in knowing what their numbers are.

We have planned another series of Art Workshops for Beginners featuring Jody Phillips as our instructor. Jody is a local artist and will be offering classes for adults and children. If you enjoy painting or would like to try painting a picture for the first time, then treat yourself to an Art Class! These workshops are designed for kids and adults to have fun while creating. No experience is needed and all materials are provided. Adult and high school age participants will be on Saturday, March 22 beginning at 1:00 p.m. Jody is offering a landscape painting, perhaps with a country theme. Youth classes will be on Sunday afternoon, with Kindergarten through 2nd grades from 1:00 – 2:00. Young people in third through 8th grades will be from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. Jody encourages everyone to wear old clothes just in case paint gets on them. Cost for these make and take projects are $35/$42 for adults and high school ages. The grade school ages will be $20/$24.
