OU Lunch Speaker Announcements

Would you like to hear a pretty incredible story? Then join us Monday, May 21st, to hear Curtis Monk, president and CEO of The Community Idea Stations, share with us about his personal experience being a heart transplant recipient.  He will speak at 12:30 pm at St. Luke Lutheran, 7757 Chippenham Parkway.  Come at noon and bring a sandwich.  Coffee and cake will be available.  I’m going to be there – hope you will be too!

And, we have a lunch speaker schedule change for next Thursday, May 24, at First Presbyterian. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Maria Howard will not be speaking about Warm Weather Exercises at lunch.  Instead, we welcome James Garton, Associate Wellness Director at the Tuckahoe YMCA, who will speak on Wellness and Fitness for Seniors, at 12:30 pm.  Again, join us at noon and bring a sandwich.

It’s the last week of the OU.  Come see everyone before summer begins – Julie

Snow Day!

Happy Snow Day!  We hope everyone is able to stay inside and just watch the pretty scene outside your window.

The office is in “remote mode” today, thanks to technology.  You can contact us by leaving a message on the office phone or email as normal.  We are able to access most everything from the safety of our homes – it is a good day to stay off the roads!

Wishing you a peaceful day. Stay safe and warm – Julie
