EnhanceFitness Class Continues Through the Summer Months

Now that summer is upon us, do not neglect your fitness routine. In fact, if you do not have a fitness routine, now is a fine time to begin one! Come join the many Trinity members that gather on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Stolee Hall for fun and exercise. This group fitness class, designed for older adults, is made possible through a grant to the local Agency on Aging and Disabilities. There is no charge to participate, but donations are welcome to help offset costs. It is led by Laurie Porter, our beloved and highly qualified instructor. EnhanceFitness improves balance, flexibility, bone density, endurance, coordination, mental sharpness, and decreases your risk of falling.

Here are the details:
-Class is offered every Monday-Wednesday-Friday, 1-2 p.m.
-Wear comfortable clothes and non-slippery shoes
-You may wish to bring a water bottle

Blood Drive

Our Next BloodworksNW Blood Drive is on Wednesday, August 5, 1-7 p.m.

We hope you will prayerfully consider donating blood at our next Trinity blood drive. Blood supplies drop to dangerously low levels in the summer months due to donors vacationing, lack of high school blood drives, and an increase in accidents. Please give this precious gift of life! You never know when you, your family, or neighbors will be in need. Students ages 16-17 may donate with parental permission. Please sign up on appointment sheet posted in the library door in the narthex or call Sue in the Parish Nurse office at 695-1221, ext. 28.

A Wonderful Community Volunteer Opportunity: Office Moms

Office Moms is a practical way to support local Child Welfare Social Workers, and also care for Foster Kids that have recently been removed from their homes. The purpose of Office Moms is to provide a grown-up (Grandmas welcome too!) whose only job at that moment is to care for, sit with, and entertain the children while a social worker finds a foster care placement for them. This can be one of the most frightening times of their lives. Office Moms is an “on-call” volunteer commitment. When caseworkers need help, they call the Office Moms coordinator, who then contacts the volunteers to see if someone is available. If you are interested in becoming an Office Mom or have any other questions, please contact Sarah Desjarlais at OfficeMomsClarkCounty@gmail.com.
