We have had a crazy week here at the center. Our BBB games had to canceled or rescheduled for this week. Bingo was our top activity.


We had Bingo on Tuesday and Friday morning at 9:45. We have started charging $1.00 to play to help with the cost of prizes.


June 16th we had a Potluck Bingo at 5:00. My goodness the food that was brought was in abundance. I hope that everyone enjoyed the fellowship with some of the best people I know!! Its my favorite part of our potlucks!!


Our ladies here have been thinking of ideas to raise money for new flooring. They have came up with some really good stuff and we hope to be ready for fair time or even before that!!


Move with balance is still twice a week. Come on by to pick up a monthly schedule to find out what time!!


Shanna Collins will be here Wednesday at 11:00 to speak about strokes. She is a great speaker and answers all the questions to the best of her ability. Please join us if you have any questions or if you want to know more about the meeting just give us a call.!!


It is starting to get hotter outside. As we get older we tend to feel colder more often then not, but our bodies can still dehydrate


Heatstroke is predictable and preventable. Take these steps to prevent heatstroke during hot weather: www.mayoclinic.org


• Wear loose fitting, lightweight clothing. Wearing excess clothing or clothing that fits tightly won’t allow your body to cool properly.


• Protect against sunburn. Sunburn affects your body’s ability to cool itself, so protect yourself outdoors with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours — or more often if you’re swimming or sweating.


• Drink plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated will help your body sweat and maintain a normal body temperature.


• Take extra precautions with certain medications. Be on the lookout for heat-related problems if you take medications that can affect your body’s ability to stay hydrated and dissipate heat.


• Never leave anyone in a parked car. This is a common cause of heat-related deaths in children. When parked in the sun, the temperature in your car can rise 20 degrees F (more than 6.7 C) in 10 minutes.


It’s not safe to leave a person in a parked car in warm or hot weather, even if the windows are cracked or the car is in shade. When your car is parked, keep it locked to prevent a child from getting inside.


• Take it easy during the hottest parts of the day. If you can’t avoid strenuous activity in hot weather, drink fluids and rest frequently in a cool spot. Try to schedule exercise or physical labor for cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or evening.


• Get acclimated. Limit time spent working or exercising in heat until you’re conditioned to it. People who are not used to hot weather are especially susceptible to heat-related illness. It can take several weeks for your body to adjust to hot weather.


• Be cautious if you’re at increased risk. If you take medications or have a condition that increases your risk of heat-related problems, avoid the heat and act quickly if you notice symptoms of overheating. If you participate in a strenuous sporting event or activity in hot weather, make sure there are medical services available in case of a heat emergency.
