Lunch and Learn at Price Rotary Senior Center

On Monday, April 21, The Atwell Family Chiropractic: A Creating Wellness Center provided a “Lunch and Learn” for the Price Rotary Senior Center.

Dr. Daniel Atwell came in and spoke about the 10 steps to longevity, and how to live a longer, healthier life. Dr. Atwell spoke about the importance of exercising, lowering stress, eating well, and having a community like the Senior Center. It was very interesting to hear the positive benefits of seeing a Chiropractor, and Dr. Atwell made the information very relatable for all of the members.

The program wrapped up with some questions from the group, and a great discussion about how to get a consultation. A huge thanks to the Atwell Family Chiropractic for the lunch, as well as the lesson!

Healthy Eating Program Presented to Timberville Broadway Senior Center and Price Rotary Senior Center

Mariah Fortman, an intern with Valley Program for Aging Services and a senior at James Madison University presented a Healthy Eating Program this past Wednesday for Timberville Broadway Senior Center and Price Rotary Senior Center.

Mariah touched on a lot of important topics for our Senior Center. The centers worked on how to properly read a nutrition label, and how to get the adequate nutrients from the food they buy. A fun game was played to determine appropriate portion sizes, and the members enjoyed the interactive, yet informative game. The program ended with a taste of some homemade apple chips, and a conversation on how to cook and buy food for one.

Many of the members offered some of their own tips on how to buy food on a budget, which lead to good conversation and participation from all. This is part one of two that Mariah will be presenting to TBSC and PRSC members.

Shroud of Turin Presentation at Price Rotary Senior Center

On Monday, April 7, the Price Rotary Senior Center welcomed Dr. Ray Schneider to talk to our members about the mysterious Shroud of Turin.

Schneider is a retired professor from Bridgewater College who taught mathematics and computer science, and spends much of his time researching about the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud of Turin is has been described to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, however there are many skeptics out there who are not quite sure what to believe.

A significant amount of research has been conducted on this topic, and Schneider presented these findings from both the faith prospective, and the eye of reason prospective.

The PRSC members showed much interest in the topic, and were excited to listen to his presentation.

Price Rotary Senior Center Local Council Meets

Price Rotary Senior Center Local Council met Monday, March 24. They were pleased to welcome Bill Greene as a new member to the Council.

The Advisory Council heard an update from Regional Director, Beth Bland. Beth updated members on the Annual Report, the latest variance report and also shared the funding requests that have been submitted to the local governments.

The Council also started processing what it means to be more of a directing and decision making group. One of the first decisions was to go to meeting on a monthly basis in order to effectively manage the new expectations. A second step was to explore publicity for the Senior Center and the variety of ways that could be addressed. Further action, in regards to publicity, will come after the Center Director supplies information to the council about topics and programming ideas for the rest of the year.
