It's been a month and we are still hear to talk about it. It's been an interesting process to actually strip apart everything we do and redefine it in coordination with COVID-19 do's and don'ts. Things that were once an issue may no longer be a concern but believe me there are plenty of new things to consider and worry about!
Happy Feet Foot Care appointments are available 4 days a month. Please call 763-560-5136 for an appointment.
Defensive Driving Refresher Classes are available August 18 from 5:30 - 9:30 pm and
August 19 from 1 - 4 pm. Classes are limited and filling. We do have September and October dates available. Call 952-707-4120 or go online to register.
Fitness classes like Sunrise Stretch, Fitness Fun, Strength & Balance, Chair Tai Chi & painting classes have begun again. NO other activities are planned at this time but I am waiting on approval of what we might be adding in September.
ALL classes must be pre-registered for and no walk-ins will be allowed. Please register for a class 2 weeks before it starts. For every activity related to the Senior Center, you MUST enter AND exit through Door #12. Please wear a mask and stop at the Reception Desk to complete the Visitor Screening form noting when you come to join us and what time you will be leaving. If you want a beverage or snack please bring you own but we have pop and water for sale.
Please remember that the Chatter newsletter will soon replace this e-newsletter. So, those of you getting this e-newsletter will receive the Chatter electronically. The fall newsletter will be a little late as I am attempting to be as up-to-date as I possibly can knowing that everything can change. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
Remember, to smile underneath your mask, stay safe, stay well and stay connected.
