-  Patti has a new Beginning Strength Training class on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9 a.m. This is a nine week basic strength training course using light weights and resistance bands. This is a great opportunity to ease your way into a fun exercise class.

-  We continue to organize and expand our library. We have movies, audio books, daily newspaper and lots of books. We have best sellers, series, westerns, fiction and non-fiction books and romance books. Truly, we have something for everyone.
