This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

Last month, one of our Aerobics Instructors, Julia Ragan, decided to try something new in her Wednesday class. Something she likes to call Bollyrobics. Its a mixture of aerobics and Bollywood (or Indian Movie style) dancing, along with Indian music. She only meant to try it one time, but they class enjoyed it so much, they asked her to continue. And so it has. The Wednesday class does their normal aerobics routine, then around 9:30 or so, they break out their scarves, and really start to move. It looks simple, but the participants definitely get a workout. If youd like to try it out, just come to the Wednesday aerobics class at 9am, dressed to exercise, dont forget the scarf, and get ready to bust a move...Bollywood style!
