The month of April 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 Chiropractor, Dr. Morgan MacBean, D.C., presented the benefits of chiropractic care for seniors. It was a great class and really hit home with the importance of keeping your body and your spine “healthy.”
On the following Tuesday several of us had lunch at the HBMS. Seriously, this is a great time for seniors and middle schoolers to sit down and have lunch together and “swap” school stories. The kids really enjoy this exchange.
We had Nurse Mark talk to us about the dangers of diabetes at our next meeting. Mark covered the differences between Type I and Type II diabetes. He also discussed, in detail, how we all can stop, or at least hold off, the damage that this disease can cause.
Then at the following Wednesday, 14 of our seniors took a trip the Pequot Indian Museum via Curmudgeon and Friends Travels. Jay was our bus driver and made the trip very easy and enjoyable. (Nothing beats someone else doing the driving.)
We finished up the month with our business meeting. We discussed possible future outings and events to include our June picnic and our Christmas Party in December. We also covered many possible tours over the next several months to include visiting the Art Museum in Manchester, the Military Museum in Wolfeboro, a possible trip on the SS Mount Washington, etc.
Activities for the month of May:
May Birthdays: Rita DiClemente, Phyllis Houle and Madelyn Monahan.
