Keeping Our Minds & Bodies Active What light through yonder window breaks? Could it be spring approaching? Oh, I know it’s a bit early but it’s on the horizon! What are your plans for spring and summer? With each year that goes by, it is important to keep ourselves in shape mentally, physically and socially. Children, young adults and middle-agers keep themselves busy with school, work and lots of activities. As we age, we still need to stimulate our minds and bodies. It’s easy to get lazy and become couch potatoes, but you know what happens to potatoes whey they just lay around—they sprout roots! Take some time to look through our booklet and find some things to keep you moving. There’s a lot of life to be lived, so let’s shake loose from those roots and be ready to move! We look forward to seeing you! —Geri Rutz, 5-5-1 Club Coordinator On the Cover: Dance Hall Days classes at the 5-5-1 Club with Christopher Yaeger, January 2014.
