We hope everyone had a good and safe Memorial Day. Rain is always a good thing, but I am ready for the sun shine and warm weather.

Paula Edmunds, Activity Director, from Peabody Health and Rehab brought in six seniors to have lunch with us this past Wed. It is always good to see our friends and spend some time with them.

Our exercise program is starting up again. We meet from 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.

Come and join us, you can bring your own weights if you want to use them exercising. (no charge)

Allison or Sarah, Peabody Health and Rehab, come to our center 2 times a month and do a therapy exercise with us. They are scheduled to come from 10:15 – 11 a.m. from June 5 and 19.

Volunteers are always needed so if you can spare a couple of hours, once a week, stop on by. It’s always nice to have back up volunteers to be a sub., please keep us in mind.
