Fall Prevention Workshop 01:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Fall Prevention Workshop 9/9/2019 1:00 PM - 9/9/2019 3:00 PM
One out of three older adults fall each year (65+) and among this population, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Many people who fall, even if not injured, develop a fear of falling. This often times leads to them limiting their activity thus decreasing mobility and loss of physical fitness, and in turn increases their actual risk of falling. This program was designed for those 60 years or older, ambulatory, and able to problem solve. It is for those who have concerns about falling, have fallen in the past, are actively restricted as a result of their fears of falling, and/or interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength. There will be a total of 8 sessions once a week and there is limited space. Please confirm your attendance with staff if you are able to commit to all 8 sessions.

Calligraphy for Beginners 01:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Calligraphy for Beginners 9/10/2019 1:00 PM - 9/10/2019 2:30 PM
Calligraphy is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, brush, or other writing instruments. A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as, "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner". Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the letters may or may not be readable. Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand lettering, though a calligrapher may practice both. Instructor asks for all participants to use monoline pens and calligraphy felt pens, not real ink. This will be much easier to manage, especially for those with little or no experience at all.
