SENIOR OF THE MONTH Verna Foresee is our February Senior of the Month! She is a very sweet lady that is always kind to everyone that comes into the center. She plays cards, Bingo, Wii Bowling, Beanbag Baseball and works on puzzles. She is active in the Lowell community. Verna volunteers at the Lowell Museum and loves to see the little elementary kids come for visits. February is American Heart Month Don’t forget to wear red on February 7th to show support for the fight against heart disease! Do you know what causes a heart attack? What about risk factors and symptoms? February is a good time to remind ourselves of how to recognize a heart attack and steps that we can take to be more heart-healthy. A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked by a buildup of plaque in the arteries. Risk factors: high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, overweight, physical inactivity. Symptoms: *uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, or pain in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes or pain that goes away and comes back *pain or discomfort in one or more arms *back pain which can indicate stress to the heart muscle *nausea or pain radiating to the jaw, neck, or back *shortness of breath What to do during a heart attack: *Call 911 immediately and follow operators instructions. *Do NOT drive yourself or have someone drive you to the hospital unless you have no other choice. Emergency responders have the equipment to help save your life when they arrive to your location. Heart attack prevention is as easy as ABC: *Avoid tobacco - *Become more active - *Choose good nutrition

We will have a U of A student volunteer Mondays and Wednesdays during the month of February! His name is Stephen Kim. Lets give him a warm welcome!

INCLEMENT WEATHER: The JB Hunt Transport Senior Activity Center will post closing information on 40/29 TV and KURM Radio.

ACT OF KINDNESS AWARD

February’s award goes to our favorite donut maker extraordinaire, Lowell’s very own Mr. Kelly McCool of Daylight Donuts! Kelly is a very kind soul and loves to help with our Wednesday morning bingo games! He is gracious enough to provide donuts to our senior center. Everyone at the center loves it when he comes to call Bingo. We would all like to thank Kelly for his willingness to always help and being so Kind!

Learn to Love with all your heart and accept the unlovable side of others. For anyone can Love a rose, but only a great heart can include the thorns.

“Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.”
