Join Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors and Minneapolis Community Education for a monthly Senior Social/Health Talk on Tues., May 21, 2019, at 10:30am (doors open at 10am) at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 2730 E. 31st St. The presentation is “Where Will You Live as You Age?” Where and how are you going to live as you get older? Bonnie Clark of the Senior Housing Guide will describe the different living options you can consider as you age, including reverse mortgages.

The last spring Alcohol Ink Painting class is planned for Wed., May 1, 1:30-3:30pm at Trinity Apartments, 2800 E. 31st St. We’ll use brightly colored, fast-drying alcohol inks and different effects to create wonderful free-form designs on tiles or synthetic paper. There is a $5 fee per class, which includes all materials. Class size is limited, so register by calling 612-729-5799.

A “Coloring Jam” (open coloring session) will be held Wed., May 22 from 1:30-3:30pm at Trinity Apartments. Come spend time coloring and relaxing! Healthy Seniors will provide a variety of coloring books, markers, crayons, and colored pencils. A class fee of $4 covers all supplies. Registration is required by calling 612-729-5799.

Tai Chi Easy exercise classes are held on Mondays from 10:30-11:30am at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Classes cost $5/each, and discounts may be available for lower-income seniors. Tai Chi is a low-impact, slow-motion exercise that’s adaptable to individual abilities. Movements vary between sitting and standing and help improve breathing, coordination, flexibility, and strength. Registration is not required, just drop in and try it!

A free monthly Diabetes Support Group for adults will be held on Wed., May 8 from 1-2:30pm at Trinity Apartments. Anyone with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is invited to attend.

Additionally, we’re looking for “Friendly Visitor” volunteers and volunteer drivers to help seniors live independently. Call Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors at 612-729-5799 or email for more information on activities, services or volunteer opportunities.
