July 2022

Summer is officially here! It sure took its sweet time.

A reminder that Monday, July 4th the center will be closed in observation of the holiday. There will also be no lunch that day so please plan accordingly.

A huge shout out to all of those who completed Matter of Balance and received your certificates! Congratulations y’all. You rock!

We have quite a few new and exciting things happening at the center this month.

On Wednesday, July 13th at 1:30pm we will have a visit from Leah Crane, a family service counselor from the Acacia Memorial Park & Funeral Home. Learn the answers to all your questions, and answers to questions you didn’t know you had! This interactive seminar focuses on funeral care and cemetery planning basics and regulations. We’ll discuss why and how to plan for your funeral needs, funded or not, whether or not you plan to have memorial services. You will learn how to make sure your family is protected, your wishes are carried out how you want, and ensure the right people have the final say.
On Monday, July 17th at 1:30pm there will be a class called Love Food, Stop Waste. Join this class put on by Tilth Alliance to learn tips on storing food to make it last longer, using leftovers efficiently, and shopping and not overbuying at the grocery store. This class will be held online through Zoom. The link to that is here. But everyone is more than welcome to come to the center to participate as well. We will have the projector set up so that everyone can participate in the zoom call.

We will be starting a Knitting and Crocheting social hour that will be conducted by Lucy Weinberg. It’ll be every Wednesday from 11am-12:30pm. Bring your current projects to sit and craft and chat with others! And we have some yarn at the center to help get you started. We are currently in the process of procuring knitting needles and crochet hooks so in the meantime you will need to bring your own (or borrow from a friend!)

As always, there’s much more going on at the center. You can see all of next month’s programming here. And you can email Justin at justinf@soundgenerations.org to find out more about any of the programs you have questions about.
