We are working on another new project called a Fidget. It is for people who are starting Alzheimer’s and like to feel and need to keep their hands busy. It is also great for people who are nervous. For more information call 218-263-5770.

Core Balance Exercise: We do exercise every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. It is open to the community, free of charge. Hand and ankle weights are optional. Your balance is a key to a great life. Remember trying to stay upright is the key. With the holidays just past, let’s not forget that balance is also an exercise to help shape our strength and minds.
