Chair Yoga with Nancy – Thursday mornings 10:30-11:30 am December 6 & 13 at Hamline Midway Library (1558 West Minnehaha)
Nancy Giguere leads this 5-week series of free classes (Nov 8 – Dec 13). Sitting in a chair or standing and using the chair for support, you’ll learn fundamentals of yoga postures and breathing, practice tension release, and begin building strength and flexibility.
Knitting Group – Mondays from 1 to 3 pm at Hamline Church United Methodist
Hamline Midway Elders provides the yarn and needles along with some light snacks. The group meets weekly throughout the year to work on projects, such as making shawls to be donated to a local hospice or blankets for a child care center. New participants are always welcome.
Reading Buddies – 1st & 3rd Wednesdays from 10:45 to 11:30 am at Hamline Elementary School
Our partnership with Hamline Elementary School is now in its 3rd school year. Third grade students from Ms. Lawson’s class enjoy reading to neighborhood elders so we’re hoping to recruit even more older adults to participate. No experience is necessary to becoming a Reading Buddy - just a desire to interact with children. And you don’t have to attend every session, just come when your schedule permits.

Seasonal Music with the North Suburban Chorus (comprised of older adults from the metro area).

Special thanks to Thrivent Financial for sponsoring this luncheon.
