Recent COA News
June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month!
It's important to take care of your health and that includes your mental health, too! There are lots of great ways to do that, such as increasing your level of social interaction. What better way to do that than to stop by either one of our Enrichment Centers? We have games going on most afternoons, exercise classes, sewing, crafts and much more. This month, we will offer a brain teaser right before lunch at both our centers. Anyone who participates will have their name entered into a drawing for a prize.
Project FRESH
Senior Project FRESH provides older adults who qualify with unprocessed, Michigan-grown products from authorized farmers markets and roadside stands throughout Michigan. Eligible items include berries, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, beans, honey and more. The program is free for both the participant and the farmer. If you would like to find out if you qualify for Project FRESH, call the COA at (269) 279-8083.
Summer Parades
The Commission on Aging will be participating in several parades this summer and we could use your help! We need walkers at the parades who will help us represent the COA. We also plan to use our new bus in the parades so if you are unable to walk but would like to ride on the COA bus, please let us know! Please call Life Enrichment Coordinator Sam Stone at (269) 279-8083 if you are interested in joining in on the fun!
