Greetings Fairfield Bay,
It is officially fall in the Ozarks.
We are enjoying the crisp nights, cooler days, Friday night football games, pumpkins and pots of mums. The kids are back in school and parents have received their 6-week progress reports. But life-long learning goes on all year for us. Keeping active and mentally stimulated in later years helps to keep our minds healthy and enhances our quality of life. So what have you done for yourself lately?
The Education Center offers our group classes in Painting, Fused Glass and Jeweled Spider classes every week. Jim, Barbara and Fran are masters at their arts and host classes that are as fun socially as they are creative. Or challenge your skills at multitasking by taking a series of 5 piano lessons with Sue, our fabulous piano instructor on Mondays.
Add a date for special classes?
We can always add a date for special classes in Ukrainian Eggs, Christmas Wreath Making, Metal Casting or Cake Decorating with a minimum of four students. After hours and Saturday classes are also an option. Does your sorority or garden club need space for a meeting or demonstration? We have a large studio with a full kitchen for use by our enrolled students. Bring me your ideas and let us help you bring them to fruition.
Health and Wellness Program
In our health and wellness program we encourage home health care givers to treat themselves as kindly as they help care for other loved ones. Tammy Smith has returned to the Education Center with her Therapy Program for Senior’s with Alzheimer’s Diseases. This introduces a new era of in-home care services for families struggling to care for a loved one with this disease and other forms of Dementia.
Sterling Scholars Lectures
The Sterling Scholars lectures are held from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Indian Hills Little Red Restaurant during the Rotary Club meeting on the first Wednesday of the month. This event is open to the public and purchase of lunch is optional.
