Tuesday, Sept. 25
“Wellness Works,” a nutrition program for all ages operated by Harrington Memorial Hospital, will be at 754 Southbridge St. from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Nutrition counselors will talk about healthy eating for both youths and seniors. Then, the two age groups will join together to make a healthy lunch or snack to go.
In addition, exercise and dance teachers will offer instruction to both age groups.
The Elks are trying to partner with health clubs and/or health facilities to utilize their staffs. They hope to have dance instructors teach classes suitable for all levels of activity, including Zumba, country line dance and hip-hop. The program also will have Wii equipment and TVs available for other types of exercise.
This will be the first of four sessions focusing on nutrition and exercise. The other dates are:
- Nov. 27, for youth.
- Feb. 26, for youth.
- May 28, for youth.
