by Immanuel on June 16, 2010

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: 

May 10 – ‘Meet Clara Barton’ – Eleanor Stearns, whom we well remember wonderfully portraying Amelia Earhart, will bring to life the famous Clara Barton.  She utilizes her amazing acting skills to make Clara come alive before our very eyes.

May 17 – ‘Music to Enjoy’ – Sit back, relax and enjoy the lovely music by Bob Lyna.  With a variety of instruments and a sing-along, he will surely entertain us all.

May 24 – ‘Staying Active as Seniors – Democrat and Chronicle’s Clean Living reporter, Patti Singer, will provide tips on the various ways to stay active – both physically and intellectually.

May 31 – ‘Man’s Most Valued Plants’ – This presentation by Jack Kowiak will look at some of the most important plants in the world today and how they contribute to our everyday well-being and survival.

June 7 – ‘A Musical Treat’ – Accomplished pianist Eugene Boldewskul will perform for us once again!   As an extra bonus, we’ll get to enjoy the deep baritone voice of Jerry Bartholomew.

June 14 – ‘Heartstrings’ – Fiddle and guitar duo Denny and Kathy Brunner will set the tone for Flag Day with their patriotic presentation!

June 21 – ‘Awesome Accordion 🎶 ‘ – We welcome our favorite accordion player, Paul Krueger, who never fails to entertain us with his talent and expertise. Paul has brought joy to Rochester audiences for years and we are happy to have him with us once again!

June 28 – ‘Alaska by Motorcycle’ – You won’t want to miss hearing Terry and Cindy Halstead relate their amazing trip (by motorcycle) to Alaska, the Yukon and the Northwest Territory!  We may even get to see that cycle up-close-and-personal!

July 5 – ‘Land That I Love’ – We are thrilled to welcome Michael Lasser, host of “Fascinatin’ Rhythm” which airs every Saturday morning on WXXI-FM (11:00). His presentation will center around America’s unofficial national anthems and his CD of songs will illustrate his program.

July 12 – ‘Music and Memories through the Ages’ – Sit back and relax as Geoff Clough entertains us with music from the good old days.

July 19 – ‘Songs from the Past’ – Those classic songs we all love, as well as some great show tunes, will be the focus of the solo program of Jerry Bartholomew. His powerful voice is one you won’t want to miss.

July 26 – ‘Webster Arboretum’ – While VBS occurs at Immanuel, our WOW gathering will take place in the Curry Building at the beautiful Webster Arboretum, 1700 Schlegel Rd.  Along with all of our usual weekly WOW activities, we’ll also get to enjoy the lovely gardens and park-like setting which is dedicated to quiet reflection, beauty, sight, smell and sounds of nature.  Please join us there!
