The sun! It does exist! Thank goodness too because tomorrow is going to be interesting. I suppose, it won’t be the first time it snows on Halloween, but it is still going to be quite a shock. I’m glad Chris and I brought Jacob to Plymouth yesterday for Trick or Treating. I don’t know how far we’ll make it in tomorrow in the snow. And by we, I mean Chris and me. Jacob won’t be bothered at all as long as there’s candy, I’m sure.
This is an exciting week at Generations as we are launching our Annual Campaign in earnest. We are so excited at the opportunities this campaign is going to bring us. For the first time, we are looking at launching a true, needs-based financial assistance program. We mean it when we say everyone is welcome at Generations, and this is going to help make that a reality for so many more people. We are also excited to bring Parkinson’s programming to our community. Having a centrally located facility in our county will help so many, both in Plymouth and the rural areas that surround us. And of course, we can’t forget all the fun intergenerational programs we will be working on. Some will be new while others will get a bit of a ‘face lift,’ but all will help us as we continue to evolve as the ONLY intergenerational center in Sheboygan County. If you want more information on any of these programs, have questions, or whatever, feel free to join one of Greg’s Fireside Chats coming up. Details are below…
Tuesday, October 31st, 9:30am – Trick or Treating with Growing Generations It’s Trick-or-Treating time! If you want to see some of the cutest ghost, ghouls, and goblins, make sure to come to Generations on Halloween morning for the fun! The kids will be coming down in groups, so it won’t get to crazy, and you’ll have more time to see each little costume. Want to help out? Ask Joa what volunteer opportunities are available for this event.
Tuesday, October 31st, 1:00pm – Tech Talk Apple Series Spencer is coming back to Generations for another installment of his Apple Tech Series. Don’t worry if you’ve missed some of the earlier classes. You can pick it up at any point. Make sure to bring your Apple Product with you to follow along. Space is limited, so please call, email, or stop in to RSVP as soon as you can.
Thursday, November 2nd, 11:45am – Nutrition Talk with Dr. Dan This is going to be a bit of a different format than Dr. Dan has done in the past. This Talk is going to be an open forum where you can ask whatever health-related questions you may have. Come prepared with some questions, or come just to listen! Either way, make sure you call, email, or stop in to RSVP.
Friday, November 3rd, 10:00am – Fireside Chat with Greg This Fireside Chat is going to be slightly different than the ones we’ve held in the past. Greg will be focusing the conversation on our Annual Campaign. What is our goal? What are going to be funding with it? Why did we pick the areas we did? We’ll talk about all this and more at this meeting. If you can’t make it on the 3rd, no worries! We’ll be doing it again on the 7th in the afternoon.
Friday, November 3rd, 1:30pm – Movie Matinee: 80 for Brady (2023) Inspired by the true story, four best friends live life to the fullest when they take a wild trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their hero Tom Brady play. Please call, email, or stop by to RSVP.
Monday, November 6th, 6:00pm – Immigration Myths and Refugee Experience Presentation Join us as we welcome Dr. Alise Coen from UW-Green Bay. She is an Associate Professor of Political Science and will share her unique insight into immigration and refugees. This is being hosted by the Family Resource Center. If you would like to reserve a seat, please contact them at 920-892-6706 or email them at [email protected].
Tuesday, November 7th, 4:00pm – Fireside Chat with Greg For anyone who couldn’t make it on Friday morning, we are holding a second Fireside Chat. Greg will again be focusing the conversation on our Annual Campaign. Let us know if you would like to attend.
Friday, November 10th, 11:00am – Dog Club This month we welcome Kendra Hodge from Healing Touch to the club! She will be discussing dog food. More specifically, how food therapy can help your dog be the best he or she can be. Bring the pup, let them socialize, and learn more on how to optimize your dog’s health. Please call, email, or stop in the office to register.
One last thing for you today. Late last week, we received a large box of COVID-19 tests. First of all, thank you to Trisha from the FRC for sharing these tests with us to be able to give them out to you! So, if you need a test or two, feel free to pop in the office and grab some. It never hurts to know what’s going on if you’re not feeling well, and it’s always better to have them and not need them, then to need them and not have them!
That should do it for today! Have a great week
