Have you ever seen the newspaper Northwest Prime Time? It is a wonderful local resource for Seniors to learn about healthy living, read interesting and relevant articles and it also includes a monthly calendar of activities- which I have copied and pasted here- (I did add one event at the end- which Capability Homecare is participating in).
