The goal of Go4Life Month is to encourage and enable older adults to incorporate physical activity into the everyday lives. The month's theme is Be Active Every Day! We welcome Dottie Drake of Miracles Fitness, as our guest speaker.

A light supper for the grandparents and grandchildren will be offered at 5:30PM, and the program will follow at 6:00PM. There is no charge for this program, but advanced registration is required.
