Get to the root of their power by discovering the therapeutic qualities of everyday plants and herbs. During this program, we will discuss several known therapeutic plants, their qualities and uses, and practice a variety of stress management techniques. Participants will leave with an individualized recipe for their stress management needs.

October 27th at 1:00 p.m. “Action Plan for Healthy Living” A long and healthy life doesn’t just happen. Everyday choices influence your quality of life. From healthy food choices, becoming more physically active, to working to improve a bad habit or behavior, there are many strategies to try. This program is designed to help participants decide on an area of life they want to change and give them the tools to make a change.

November 9th at 7:00 p.m. “Giving and Giving and Giving Wisely” Many people across the country and globe donate to charitable causes. If you are planning to donate on Giving Tuesday or any other day of the year, make sure to do your research so you know that your contribution will be well spent.

December 8th at 1:00 p.m. “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: This is Not What I Remembered!” In the US, almost 7.8 million children are living in homes where grandparents are the main caregivers. There are special dynamics that occur when a grandparent is raising a grandchild: attachment issues, emotional and mental health issues, boundary establishment, social media, feeling of being overwhelmed, and a loss of the role as a grandparent. Learn the importance of self-care and connecting with community resources.
