Ms. Kim is excited to announce that the “Summer Reading Camp” will be every Wednesday at 10:30 am. beginning on Wednesday, June 20th through July 25th. (no program on July 4th as the library will be closed). The ages are for 8 years old and under. If they have a sibling that is older, they may attend as well (they can be helpers). PARENTS MUST ATTEND!!

Tai Chi at the Senior Center – Beginning July 9th, Okeechobee Senior Services will again be offering Tai Chi classes on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30 – 10:30 at the Lottie Raulerson Senior Center. Tai Chi offers many potential benefits to seniors such as relieving the physical effects of stress, reducing bone loss in menopausal women, improving lower body and leg strength, reducing arthritis pain and reducing blood pressure. Tai Chi is also known to increase energy by releasing endorphins, increase mental capacity and concentration, improve balance and stability by strengthening the ankles and the knees, and promote faster recovery from strokes and heart attacks. This is a great opportunity to do something good for your mind, body and soul, and who knows, you may make some new friends along the way. These classes are offered to beginners and the experienced at no cost. The Lottie Raulerson Senior Center is located at 1690 NW 9th Avenue, just south of the IRSC campus. For further information, please call Senior Services at 863-462-5180.
