Wellness On Wednesdays meets every Wednesday, and is for those 55 and older. Join us from 10 am to 12:30 pm for blood pressure checks, light exercises, speakers and lunch.

The program schedule for the next couple of weeks: 

June 20 – “The Life and Works of Norman Rockwell:  Illustrator, Artist, American” – WOW’s own Bill Ruoff will provide a presentation to remember as he covers this famous artist’s life, works, criticism by others, influence on other artists and his high regard by many buyers who are willing to pay millions of dollars for a single Rockwell original!

June 27 – “Tulip Time in the Netherlands” – Enjoy the sights of the Dutch tulip fields!  Dave and Lyn Reville will share highlights of their recent trip to Holland, including the biggest flower park in the world ~ Keukenhuf Park, where more than 7 million flower bulbs are planted every year!

July 4 – NO WOW – due to holiday

July 11 – “Opioids” – We welcome Keith Greer who will address this on-going recent topic and share how the drug problem can affect seniors.

July 18 – “Antique Dolls” – Join us as Jacquie Henry explores the fascinating world of antique dolls:  their collection, care, organization, accessories, furniture, enjoyment and much more!  (If you own an antique doll, please feel free to bring it along to share with Jacquie.)

July 25 – DUE TO VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL AT IMMANUEL, WE WILL MEET AT THE WEBSTER ARBORETUM, 1700 Schlegel Road in Webster at 10:00 as usual.

“Laura Ingalls Wilder” – Being in a lovely country setting like the arboretum, it is only fitting that we enjoy having Lynda Parmalee portray this writer known for the Little House on the Prairie series of children’s books based on her childhood in a pioneer family.
