ABOUT CLUB

FEBRUARY UPDATE

The meeting of the Silver Ridge Park West Women’s Club was quite interesting. Our two speakers; Megan Trapanese from Alcouer Gardens, spoke on Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory disorders while we enjoyed pizza. Megan suggested a variety of techniques to boost memory.
 
Dr. Siobhan Pakenham from Atlantic Wellness and Spine Center, spoke on “The Risk of Falling and How to prevent it” with a focus on Balance and Posture. We enjoyed the cookies she brought. We also were able to try out the Power Plate. With one of the exercises on the Power Plate, I was able to pretend I was surfing.
 
We enjoyed them both and learned a lot.
 
Denise again reminded everyone about the $10.00 deposit for the River Lady cruise in June 2019. The balance is due by the May meeting.
 
Our next meeting is February 6th (this is our last meeting at our clubhouse till September. The rest of our meetings will be at other locations as per our agenda.) We will have a speaker from Senior Services at our February meeting. Many of us do not know all of what Senior Services offer. Come and find out! Coffee and cake will be provided.
 
If you can’t drive or need a ride, let me know so we can arrange for you to come. I don’t want you to wish you could participate but can’t because of a ride situation. After all, you are a Silver Ridge Park West Woman and you deserve to enjoy some time with us.
 
Please remember, membership is open to all Silver Ridge Park West women. If anyone has questions, please call our President Pat Chicarelli at 908- 917-4714.
 
The Silver Ridge Park Women’s Club wishes everyone a very, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
