Additional Information:
Memories can get fuzzy as we age, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Regularly challenging ourselves with fun mental exercises keeps our minds running on all four cylinders. In fact, adults who frequently engage in mentally stimulating activities are 63% less likely to develop dementia than those who rarely do such activities (according to a New England Journal of Medicine study). Stacey Goffinet and Sarah Harris will lead participants in playing trivia games, solving puzzles and other fun activities to maintain a sharp focus and, better memory retention. Games and puzzles are among the best ways to maintain active and productive use of all our mental faculties. Eating healthy foods and exercise can also significantly boost our brain power!

Refreshments will be provided by Comfort Keepers. New players are always welcome! Sponsored by Area 10 Agency on Aging and Comfort Keepers. For more information: call the center at 876-3383 ex. 515.

Michael’s philosophy includes the idea that art is the root of all design and creating art of his own makes him a more creative professional.

Cost: FREE (Donations to the Center greatly appreciated)

Additional Info: Harmonicas for health has been endorsed by IU Health Bloomington Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program. Harmonicas can enhance lung function and capacity. All wind instruments can claim this benefit, but the harmonica is special because the you play notes while inhaling and exhaling, so lung control is improved in both directions. Better lung function means better health over all. This fun, free and inclusive class concentrates on exercises that mainly strengthen the diaphragm, the major set of muscles used in breathing. Just five minutes daily of harmonica exercise can make a difference. Participants may join at any time, and a free harmonica will be provided, along with handouts for practice at home.

Mary Jane Gormley is an author, musician, calligrapher and copy editor. She finds the harmonica to be a special delight, although she concedes her enthusiasm “outruns” her talent. Despite her modesty, Mary Jane has enriched and touched the lives of many, many students over the years she has offered this popular class through the Endwright Center.

PEACH FOR PAWS – WINE FOR A CAUSE
An Open House Celebrating a Partnership to Benefit the Animals

The Brown County Humane Society and Brown County Winery are pleased to announce a special open house event, “Peach for Paws – Wine for a Cause,” celebrating the release of Brown County Winery’s new Peach Wine. The Brown County Winery will be donating 10% of all sales of the peach wine to the Brown County Humane Society to support their programs.

The event will take place at the Brown County Winery on October 4, 2014 from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Visitors can enjoy wine samples, games, music, and treats and the Humane Society will have adoptable dogs to visit. There is no cost to attend and the event is open to all ages. The Brown County Winery is located at 4520 State Road 46 East in Nashville, Indiana. People are encouraged to also visit the shelter before or after stopping at the winery. It’s just down the road at 128 South State Road 135 in Nashville. The shelter is open from 12:00 – 5:00 that day.

Brown County Winery and Brown County Humane Society have both been receiving accolades of late: The winery for its award-winning varieties, including a Double Gold at the 2013 Indy International Wine Competition, and the shelter for achieving a 95% or more save rate for the 4th consecutive year. This partnership brings together two groups that show the best that Brown County has to offer.

Grammy Award® winner Chip Davis will direct and co-produce Tour performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The show features classic Christmas hits from Mannheim Steamroller and multimedia effects in an intimate setting.

In addition to being a holiday tradition for many families, the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour regularly attracts repeat attendance from multi-generational guests and is one of the longest running tours in the music industry.

Davis plans to release a new album, Mannheim Steamroller 30/40, this fall. In celebration of the 30th Anniversary Christmas Tour, tracks will include Christmas fan favorites while selections from Davis’ iconic Fresh Aire series and recordings by his daughter, Elyse, will celebrate 40 years of ground-breaking sound.

About Chip Davis and Mannheim Steamroller
From his longtime home in Omaha, Neb., Mannheim Steamroller creator Chip Davis makes innovative music inspired by the sounds of another age. This former teacher and jingle writer founded the music industry’s largest independent recording label, American Gramaphone, in 1974 when industry executives said Davis’ innovative 18th century instrumental rock sound would never sell. In addition to a Grammy Award, Davis is largely credited with establishing the New Age music category that revolutionized the making and marketing of holiday music. His first Christmas album was released in 1984; the album’s success made Christmas records a “must do” for all music artists. With more than 40 million total records sold including 28 million Christmas albums, Mannheim Steamroller founder Chip Davis is the #1-selling Christmas artist of all time.
Davis, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the music industry, offers a rich array of lifestyle products on www.mannheimsteamroller.com including hot chocolate, food, apparel and novelty items. His latest achievement is creating a cutting edge psychoacoustic technology that is being used in major medical institutions such as Mayo Clinic and is also being studied by NASA for potential use in space.
