Updates From the Director – August

Hello! I wanted to start off by saying thank you to all who donated to our Badger Prairie Needs Network food drive. Our efforts helped ease the burden of our neighbors suffering from food insecurity. We really appreciate your generosity.

I’m excited to announce lots of brand-new programs coming in August and September.  In August, we are welcoming Rachel back for another virtual exercise class. This month she will be teaching Pilates as well as virtual yoga.  Also, this month we will be offering a new Cardio Kickboxing class!! This is a great way to get your heart pumping. Be sure to check out all of our self-care opportunities starting on page 12.


New in September
Starting in September, we will welcome another self-care provider to VSC. Dr. Joe Zirneskie will be offering acupuncture on Mondays and Wednesdays starting September 7th.  For details about acupuncture and our Meet and Greet with Dr. Joe, please see page 24.  Also in September, we will be offering Stepping On, a fall prevention workshop. This 7-week class will start September 12th.  For details please see page 26.

Lastly in September, we will be collaborating with Wisconsin Literacy to ofer a Caregiver Workshop.  This program will teach participants not only communication techniques but also support strategies that improve the health care and caregiving for older adults. Be sure to register early as spots are limited.  Please see details on page 19.
