September programs scheduled at Senior Resource Center

Aug 29, 2014

Seniors can enjoy some of the upcoming programs at the Senior Resource Center, located at 81 Elmwood Way, Waynesville.

Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less

This program focuses on lifestyle habits that help participants achieve a healthy weight.  Losing weight is only a small part of the journey — It’s about feeling better, having more energy and becoming more mindful.

The program is built on strategies proven to work, including mindful eating and physical activity. The goal of Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less is to inform, empower, and motivate participants to live mindfully as they make choices about eating and physical activity.

The program is presented in weekly one-hour sessions, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 3, and ending Dec. 10. The cost is $30 and will be taught by Julie Sawyer from the Cooperative Extension office.

Give a Hoot!

Owls are very popular. See the real thing up close and personal and learn more about these fascinating creatures at 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 15.

Doris Mager, the “Eagle Lady,” has provided rehab to over 80 injured eagles. She now enjoys presenting her “Birds of Prey” educational sessions. She will introduce a great horned owl, a screech owl and an American kestrel. The session is a collaboration between the Senior Resource Center and the Haywood Recreation and Parks Department.

Understanding Medicare statements

Learn how to make heads or tails of Medicare statements from 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17.
