Friday Lunch Program: Thank you to Judy O'Dell and Kris Wellstein (pictured here) for their hilarious enactment of the fractured fairytale:”Guilty Looks and the Tree Beers” recently.
Making an Advance Care Directive is the topic on March 21 at 12:45pm with speakers, Betty Doak and Pat Peterson. Having a written statement now for your doctor and family about what medical care you do and don't want is important in case you are unable to speak for yourself in the future. Betty and Pat will soon offer a short course on how to make your Advance Care Directive.
