Friday, Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. – Cathie Clager and Rita Wolensky, master story tellers will fascinate you with, “Innovations from a Divided Nation.” They’ll go back to the time of the Civil War and point out legacies created then that still exist today, like the National Parks, Santa Claus and The Ohio State University.

Friday, Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. – It’s a presentation from the people who want you to feel good again. It’s Active Health Physical Therapy on Brecksville Road. Our speaker will be Nikki Umina who holds a Masters in Science and Physical Therapy from Walsh University. Don’t worry if you only speak Greek, she’s fluent.

Monday, Feb. 12 at 11 a.m. – Do you or a family member have cancer? Have you ever heard of The Gathering Place? Yes, your doctor answers the tough questions but the caring people of the Gathering Place go way beyond that. Beth Elsass will let you know what services, help and comfort are available.

Friday, Feb. 23 at 11 – Laura Hazen of Hanson Home Health Care Service will talk about “Healthy Brain Basics” with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s.
