Chair Yoga with instructor Marianne Bergonzi

All are welcome to attend Marianne’s bi-monthly yoga class. Yoga is a study of your body, mind and breath. It is about learning how to undo unconscious repetitive patterns of movement that do not serve us well.

Steps in Time Dance program with Michael Windward
2:30 pm, Activity Room
Michael Winward, an independent dance artist, will be coming by for another
afternoon of ballroom dancing. With influences in American-style ballroom, ballet and contemporary dance practices, his work places a strong focus on building connections. Connection to one’s body, one’s self, one’s audience; connection between dance partners, connection within and across communities. In 2016, Michael founded Steps in Time, a program that brings ballroom dance workshops to senior communities. Ballroom dancing provides incredible benefits to older adults. It encourages good posture and it provides low-impact, cardiovascular exercise. All are welcome, whether you’d like to participate or just spectate!

Gary Hylander Lecture
Topic: Abandon Ship: The Indianapolis
11:00 am, Activity Room
Gary Hylander holds a Doctorate in Presidential History and is a scholar entirely impassioned by his subject matter. He makes U.S. history come alive as he lectures each month. After delivering an atomic bomb to Tinian Island for the air attack upon Hiroshima, the Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine on July 30, 1945.  An estimated 300 sailors were killed immediately and another 900 sailors were swept into the Pacific Ocean. Battered by high seas, hypothermia and dehydration, only one-third of the men managed to survive. While Captain Charles McVay survived the sinking, he never truly survived. The sinking of the Indianapolis was the single worst naval disaster at sea in American history. An official cover-up was already underway.
