The academy, part of Samaritas Senior Living Center, is known for its fun classes that involve both their residents and the public coming together. There are more of these fun events coming in September to help people learn new skills and make connections with the community.

There are four events coming up this month, with one in-person socially distanced event and the others on Zoom.

Rolling With It- August 27 at 3 p.m.

Come, have fun learning to make products to support your health and the health of others you care for. Working thru the current season of our collective lives, we have learned about many toxic elements, but not always how to eradicate them from our lives. Learn why and how Essential Oils support your health and wellbeing! Full instructions will be given to create and replicate the products as gifts to others. All supplies will be sent to the address you register with for the class. Join the group in the comfort of your home, via Zoom video call.
