STROKE AND APHASIA SUFFERS
Just a short blurb about a drop-in facility you may not be aware of for the care of Stroke & Aphasia sufferers. The Aphasia Community Friendship Center is open on Fridays for those who suffer with either of these afflictions. It's located in the Health & Fitness Center at the Washtenaw Community College on Huron River Drive in Ann Arbor. For more information check out the information board in the hallway or go to their website: www.aphasiacenterMI.org

We walk on Mondays and Thursdays at 11:00 am for about 1/2 hour and we meet in the parking lot on
Merrill Rd. just across from the Senior Center. Since we start right at 11:00 it is a good idea to get there a few minutes early so you don’t miss the group. You do not have to stay with the group but we like to start off together. The faster walkers go fast and we hang with the slower paced walkers. Please make sure your doctor approves of your walking as we walk about 1 1/2 miles and PLEASE PLEASE wear proper walking shoes so you do not hurt your feet! And remember to wear clothes appropriate for the weather especially as it gets warmer out. See you out there!!
Acupuncture Join us as we learn more about Acupuncture! Ron Hough will be here on a weekly basis for those wishing to have acupuncture done. Acupuncture is Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been around hundreds of years and can help improve your general health, help you sleep better, increase energy, relieve stress and feel good naturally with lifelong effects.
Ron Hough is a Licensed Acupuncturist and earned his degree from Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA.
When: Thursdays, 10:00 - 12:00
Fee: $15 per session

St. Paul Lutheran - Daisy's Pantry
When/Where: 1st & 3rd Wednesdays - 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. - at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 7701 East M-36, Hamburg
St. Paul Lutheran Church sponsors a pantry for anyone who has emergency needs. Their Daisy Pantry will supply food for those in need. There are no questions asked or appointment needed, just show up. If you have any questions, call St. Paul Lutheran Church at 810-231-1033.
Gleaners has received a grant from the State of Michigan to provide fresh produce to our seniors. What that means to you is this: on the 3rd Thursday of the month Senior Nutrition will deliver a batch of fresh produce and will be available to you to take home. It could be apples and grapefruit or it could be potatoes and onions, just depends on what they were able to get that month. And we will not know what they're getting until it arrives here at the center.......just so I don't get a bunch of questions on what is coming in!! :) And yes, this is at no cost to you. Enjoy!!
You may have noticed a new item in the dining room.....................a produce cart. Say whaaaaat?? Yep. A produce cart.
We received a produce cart from the Livingston County Hunger Council who was awarded monies to help low income and vulnerable populations, such as seniors, have access to healthy food products such as fruits and vegetables. They plan to continue supplying the produce cart with fruits and vegetables from Gleaner weekly produce distributions or from the Hunger Councils local community garden network. At this writing, we have only received the initial produce they brought with the cart but I do expect to see more, I just do not know when! In the meantime, I have put tomatoes and cukes out from our gardens and several of you have brought in produce from your own gardens. Enjoy!!
