New at the Senior Center

Intern in Case Management

 

 

Hello my name is Lauren Wendland and I am the new student intern with Case Management at the Verona Senior Center! I am in my final year of school at UW-Madison pursuing my Masters in Social Work and will be interning until my graduation in May of 2021. I graduated with my Bachelors in Social Work from UW-Whitewater in 2019. I have lived in the Madison area my whole life and currently live in Fitchburg. I work at UnityPoint Health-Meriter hospital as a Patient Experience Specialist working with patients and staff to create the best possible environment for care. In my free time I enjoy playing volleyball, exercising, travelling, and camping with family and friends. As the Verona Senior Center begins to welcome back members for more inhouse programming, I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone!

EASY PEASY MEMORY WIRE BRACELET CLASS
with Lin Standke 

 

Thursday, Nov. 19 10:00 – 3:00 PM

 

**Call & RSVP for a 30min session.

 

Combine rubber tubing and colorful beads to make a fun and unique bracelet! Bracelets slide on and off easily. One size fits almost everyone, so they are perfect for a gift. Lin will demonstrate how to make wire wrapped dangles or she can do it for you. The first bracelet is free, the second is $2.

 

Safety info: You’ll use your own spoon to pick your beads from bowls. Bring your own scissors to cut tubing if you prefer. Beading tools will be cleaned and sanitized. (If you have jewelry tools, bring a round nose and flat nose pliers.)

 

Note: I will not have “Bucky”  or any letter beads, but you can bring your own if you want to personalize a bracelet with a name or meaningful word like “Hope,” “Peace” or  “Laugh”.
