the second Monday of the month to share your thoughts and insights. If you have never been
in a book group before and want to see what it is like, you can attend without reading the

March discussion: attended by 14 people! Doris decorated with an Irish theme and made
homemade Irish treats. Special guest was Melissa Clark, Information Services Assistant, with
the Huber Heights Library. Melissa arranges for the books to be on reserve for our members
and recommends book selections.

April 13 (change to May 11 if center still closed): We will be discussing Unbroken by Laura
Hillenbrand, a World War II story of survival, resilience and redemption. Central character is
Louis Zamperini whose track abilities took him to the 1936 Berlin Olympics. After the outbreak
of the war, he joined the Navy and was captured and spent time in Japanese POW camps.
Upcoming; date to be announced: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Between 1854 &
1929, trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest,
carrying thousands of children who had been orphaned or abandoned to new homes to be,
hopefully, adopted by loving and kind families. This book documents some of those children
in a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
Join us to discuss the varied experiences of these children.

A MATTER OF BALANCE CLASS   
This nationally recognized program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls and
increase activity levels. Those who have fallen, those who avoid activities because they are
afraid of falling, and those interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength may benefit
from this interactive program. People who develop a fear of falling often limit their activities
which can result in physical weakness and a higher risk of falling.
Sponsored by Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley, this eight-week program will be offered at
the senior center beginning June 5. Class will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Friday and taught by a
trained coach. It is open to seniors age 60 and up who are ambulatory or in a wheelchair and
able to problem solve and to those who are younger and disabled. Class consists of lecture,
discussion, class participation in exercises (not strenuous) that are custom tailored to the
class (starts week 3), demonstrations on how to get up from a fall, and more! Students will
receive a workbook and a certificate based on how many classes are attended. Phone calls
accepted; open to the community. Seating limited. Registration begins May 13.
