We had a great turn out and of course the usual wonderful donut treats and coffee - thank to Ron Yarema for making a special trip to pick them up!
Our guest speaker was Tam Yamashita from ALCOA. Her topic was preventing falls. Lots of great tips which included, strength and resistance exercises, balance exercises, proper nutrition (at least 3 nutritious meals per day), drinking 5 to 8 glasses of water, taking Vitamin D supplements, wearing shoes that offer a good grip and support and making sure you pick up any loose items on the floor that might cause you to trip. Tam even had us up doing exercises! For more information to take action to prevent falls, visit www.preventfalls.ca.
