Starting a New Year

I’ve been remiss about posting to this site. I looked up and it has been months. Lots has been happening.

We are now up to almost 120 people who have signed up to enjoy the benefits of Wisdom|crew membership.

We had a great Holiday party combined with 5 or 6 birthday celebrations. 65 members of the Crew showed up for the event. Thanks to Holly’s ramrodding we raised a record amount to celebrate our regular wait person Ken. We may have paid for a year’s worth of sporting events…he is a long distance runner and those races are expensive especially the marathons. We also collected some food for the food bank. If someone wants to take that on as a regular effort I am sure the food bank would be happy to have the food.

Pete Quoyeser is 90 Years Young and doing well. He let me blow out the candles.

The Women of Wisdom are meeting regularly on Monday’s from 2-4 pm for beverages and talk. If you want to find out more about this group and where they meet you can contact Pam Canales at pam.canales@gmail.com.

The Wisdom Walkers are meeting regularly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to walk around the lake in Lake Park. The loop is almost precisely one mile and you can always do as many loops as you feel you need. We are now leaving Halcyon at 9:00 am. When it warms up we will move the time to an earlier hour to try and beat the heat. Tom Shim and Carol Hendrickson are the instigators of the Wisdom Walkers. If you want to know more about this group contact Carol Hendrickson at carol.hendrickson@mac.com

One of the things we are hoping to do is to start a podcast with conversations about issues of getting older. We are thinking of calling it A Word to the Wise. We are all doing it (getting older) so we will be talking with lots of people, lots of ages and lots of backgrounds. If you would like to take part in the conversations, sort of like Story Corps, let us know through the contact link on this site.

Remember, the Wisdom|crew card needs to be renewed every year. I’ll be sending out renewal notices for the next set of renewals soon so look for it in your mail box. $10 a year is a bargain for the joy, fun and good food we get at our Partner’s Establishments.

Have a great new year, it is going to be great.!
