This is the second year of the three year MNWT Priorety Area Project Breaking Free. If you would like to learn more about Breaking Free here is their website, http://www.breakingfree.net.

For the 2016/2017 year I would like to focus on service.

My top ideas for this year are:
l) Host a graduation ceremonies.
2)A pre-meeting assembly of personal product bags for Breaking Free to use in their outreach program.

Youth of Today: June

I'm writing this article on June 20th the first "official" day of summer. I'm sure we all remember the excitement and thrill on the last day of school and start of summer! Nothing says summer more than "YOUTH".

The Youth of Today area promotes events, projects, ideas and activities that allow YOUTH to discover and experience the importance of volunteering, and also promotes foundations related to youth activities. We've already had our first Youth of Today event a Schools Out Party.

Our next scheduled event will be "Movie in the Park". This event will be the Friday night of DDD, July 15th, at the outdoor theater in Civic Center Park (behind City Hall). The movie will be "Inside Out" and time will be around 8:30ish.

A major emphasis of "Youth of Today" is Kid's Week, which is held August 14th-20th. I'm hoping we can schedule at least 2-3 youth events during this week. If you have any ideas please let me know.

Women's Wellness: June

I was shopping recently and purchased a towel (Pilates I thought you said Pie and Lattes). It really grabbed my attention !

So, I googled "Pilates"!

You can look on "You Tube" for Pilates classes or actually any type of exercise classes to do at home.

I have some exercise videos I might dust off and plan to use them! Really! Anyone want to be my exercise buddy ? It would be FUN! At some future time I will make "homemade" pie and we can have an exercise group meeting ! Will you join me in this adventure ?
