The month of June started with an exercise class, a movie and of course Blood Pressure checks. The exercise class was well received and is well attended. Keep in mind the exercises are via video so we can set our own pace. Come to the “Barn” at 10:30 every Thursday and stretch your limbs.
At the next meeting our local Reike Master, Laura, presented the benefits of Reike and its relaxation benefits for seniors. It was a great demonstration (Our willing patient was Nancy Bell.) and really hit home with the importance of proper relaxation that is great for the body and soul.
At our next meeting we had Hollis Police Officer Macinnis present a program about “fraud” and how to protect your identity from various scams. Officer Macinnis explained in detail the various computer, email and phone scams that all citizens need to be aware of. He also stressed the importance of monitoring your credit report, at least on an annual basis. He also provided names and organizations you can contact if you feel you are or have been a victim of fraud. They are:

At our following meeting we had “Gus the Beekeeper” detailing the real life of honeybees. They play a very important part in maintaining our food supply. He explained the inner workings of a beehive, who the main players (bees) are, their longevity and just what makes an ideal beehive. He and his wife explained the importance of beehive democracy, which is how a hive really works together. Gus ended his presentation by discussing the damage that toxic pesticides used in our yards, gardens, orchards and on farms causes to the bees.
We finished up the month with our business meeting.
