Growing old the right way

Mom and Dad looking very smart in their new outfits - they have both signed up for an eight week course in our wonderful city of Ipswich.  It is aimed at older folk introducing them to living actively, staying mentally healthy and enjoying life.

Yesterday was their introduction and they were given caps, t-shirts, water bottles and a towel. They will have a chance to have a cooking lesson, participate in aqua-aerobics (Mom said now they need to find their swimsuits) and also listen to guest lecturers.

What a great city (Ipswich, Qld) we live in - this is all free and encourages our precious older members of the community to live a healthy, happy life.  Well done Mom and Dad for participating.

Thanks for the post Beverly, it was a great day and we even had a free breakfast and a wonderful lunch. I think it is going to be lots of fun and lots of good information about living a healthy and active life.

This is a wonderful post, Beverly - how exciting for Dorothy and Brian! Makes me enthusiastic about aging and all the possibilities 'out there'.

Thanks for sharing!
