Hello,
I dropped a brochure as we teach MindFit classes to Senior Center off Hancock and various location.
I would like to propose a one hour Brain Health class and see if this would launch into a Mind Fit class if there is enough patron interest. Please contact me at your convenience, I dropped the flyers with Sherrie at the Front Desk, Century 21 library.
