MEREDITH -- The Inter Lakes Collaborative for Active Seniors will be sponsoring a demonstration on acupuncture with Heidi Eberhardt and Tai Chi with instructor Russ Jones on Wednesday, July 16, at 11 a.m. in the Senior Room of the Meredith Community Center.
The collaborative -- or ICAS -- had its inception several weeks ago when the Community Action Program renounced its affiliation in Meredith. Now the tri-town seniors of Meredith, Center Harbor and New Hampton have come together. These active elders are creating new programs specific to their specific needs.
The acupuncture and Tai Chi demonstrations are being offered under the auspices of Meredith Parks and Recreation.
As ICAS focuses on health, wellness and living life to its fullest, these medical alternatives alleviate pain and assist with balance, movement and agility. We hope to see you take advantage of these opportunities to better health.
