Today is the last day of summer and also the day we celebrate regional Swanson Award winner, Charlotte B. For those coming, the celebration begins at about 12:45. I have a regular work day wrapped around this and that does include the 11:30 SilverSneakers class which we will end just a little early to get the room reorganized. There will be some light food and cake and we will raffle off some SilverSneakers t-shirts. There will be a rep from SilverSneakers presenting Charlotte with her award and a rep from Humana as well. I wrote a little “ditty” that I will be reading to Charlotte and I am sure she will have some words to share with the group as well. Since we only have 50 chairs, I expect a lot of “standing room only.” Congrats to Charlotte and all the nominees as well as Grace, in Arizona, who won the National Award.
Tomorrow is the first full day of fall and I leave you with this quote by Henry David Thoreau:
“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.”
