A Message from Carol Daly, Director of Health & Wellness

March is a National Women's History Month, and what better time to celebrate the young heroine of Purim, Esther. The Purim story, from the book of Esther, is one of the most memorable in the entire Bible where the courageous voice of one woman was able to free the Jewish people from tyranny. This story of courage and libaration is a story with which we can all identify. We hope you will join us on Thursday, March 1st for our Purim Celebration wtih lunch followed by Mask-masking, music & the traditional Purim cookie, Hamentaschen.

March is also the month of Nutrition and Brain Health. We're getting ready to be outdoors more and we want to do so with sharp thinking and vitality based on a healthy daily life!  Join us for "Heart Healthy Eating Habits" with Joan Altman, on Tuesday, March 14th, 1pm, in the Auditorium. Keep your mind clear and focused by joining Wednesdays @3pm "Mindful Matters" with Ann.
