Learn about the Well-Connected Community
At the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center we know that one of the best feelings in the world is connecting with another person, bonding over a shared interests or sharing thoughts and opinions with a friend.
For numerous reasons an in-person social connection can be difficult to make. You may live in a remote area, have social anxiety, are unable to drive, or just don't know where to find people you'd like to interact with.
To help remedy this lack of connection the center is hosting a webinar to introduce the Well-Connected Community at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12. The Well Connected Community offers an assortment of programs, friendly conversations and activities you can join from your home. Some of the programs offered include Perfecting Your French, Armchair Travel to the Maldives and Creativity Unleashed, Brain Health, all of which you can participate in via computer from the comforts of your home.
The introductory webinar will teach users how to connect from home. The Well-Connected Community is an excellent resource for
anyone unable to come to the center on a regular basis to partake in the recreation and learning programs offered at the center. For example, a caregiver who needs an option to provide stimulation for their loved one may get a lot out of this program. The ACC is thrilled to be able to help the community become of aware of this resource and help people learn how to utilize this in-home learning opportunity. Please join us on Tues. Nov. 12 at 2 p.m.; registration is requested.
The lunch menu this week features Cincinnati Chili on Friday, Nov. 8 and meatloaf on Wednesday, Nov. 13. The center is closed Monday, Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day. Lunch costs a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
