Join us on Thursday, January 23 at 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. at the Nelsonville Health Center in the Heritage Community Room. January’s talk will be an interactive exploration of current (free!) library resources and programs area older adults may especially find interesting or helpful. Come prepared to be amazed at what you can do, make and discover with your library card! Our presenter will be Laura O’Neil, ACPL’s Outreach Manager, who will also share how she found her way to Library Land.
UpBEAT Food for Thought Program provides free health education workshops and presentations for adults ages 55 and older. The Food for Thought Program meets the third Thursday of each month at 2 p.m., usually at OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital and the fourth Thursday of the month, for months of January, March, May, July, and September at 2 p.m. at the OhioHealth Nelsonville Health Center.
UpBEAT is a program for those 55 years and older. Membership is free. To join UpBEAT and receive our monthly newsletter, or for program information, call Caitlin Bond, UpBEAT Program Coordinator, at (740) 566.4680.
During winter weather please note, UpBEAT programming is cancelled if the Athens City School District cancels for severe weather. We also cancel our programs if conditions are dangerous for older adults to leave their homes, for example if there is ice on roads or sidewalks or the temperature is below 15 degrees. When an activity is cancelled due to weather conditions, it will meet again at the next regularly scheduled time. When possible, the speaker or activity for the cancelled program will be rescheduled for the next available date. Except for the Saturday exercise class at O’Bleness, cancellations will be announced on WATH 970 AM.
