Senior Center News – Cat hammocks donated to shelter (Aug. 19, 2015 issue)

The senior center would like to thank Carolyn Burnette and Becky Huebsch who completed the cat hammock project that various older adults initiated and contributed their time to accomplish. The ladies made several cat hammocks, which were donated to the Unicoi County Animal Shelter.
We tremendously enjoy when the center is able to contribute to the needs of the community. We would also like to thank Dana Woodridge, who donated her time to demonstrate how to make the hammocks, as without her this project would not have been possible!
The senior center would also like to thank each of you who came out to shop and support our rummage and bake sale, as our fundraisers are more important than ever before. To keep track of other ways you can support us or to be advised of the various activities, events, fitness classes, trips, and more, please like our Facebook page.
Please join us on Thursday, Aug. 20, at 10 a.m. for a presentation on Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (PPV) and Balance, which will be presented by Dr. Stephanie Rouse, with the Veterans Administration Medical Center. She will share what triggers vertigo and what affects your balance as well as give you tips on how to cope with and minimize its challenges.
Be advised that the winning team from the county brain games competition, Pauline’s Divas (Pauline Stierwalt, Pat Tipton and Laral Davis) will compete at the 3rd Annual District Brain Games Competition on Aug. 25 at the Elizabethton Senior Center beginning at 10 a.m.
If you desire to attend and support them in their effort to advance to the sub-state competition, please contact the senior center by Friday, Aug. 21, as seating is limited.
