January 25 – Creative Aging: Getting Artsy for Health & Well-Being

Discover how creativity plays a role in healthy aging. We’ll hear from local groups and organizations about the opportunities they offer and how to connect with them for artsy-craftsy fun and inspiration…regardless of experience or skill level. Coffee and a light dessert will be provided. The event is free if you join via Zoom, come to the in-person event without lunch, or bring your own lunch. If you prefer, you can pre-order a Java Moose lunch to enjoy at the in-person class for $18 (vegan/gluten-free option available.) Registration for the catered lunch ends on January 19.
