NARFE supports Warm Blessings outreach

-A A +A

Chapter 1050 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees recently met in the Elizabethtown Nolin RECC conference room. The guest speaker was Donna McCurry from Tender Touch Senior Services. She focused on the fact that people of every age need to keep moving and seniors especially need to keep an exercise routine in their daily schedule.

Even though exercising may be a bit painful, McCurry emphasized that doing no exercise at all would allow the body to develop lifelong movement complications. Usually routine exercise allows participant to feel better and become stronger on a daily basis. She invited everyone to participate in the free exercise program at 10 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at the Armory on Warfield Street in Elizabethtown.

During the business meeting, Chapter President Mary Tom Haun thanked the membership for supporting the outreach project by bringing a trunk load of paper products for the Warm Blessings Soup Kitchen in Elizabethtown. Warm Blessings’ Jeanette Goodman was thankful as well when the paper products were delivered after the meeting.

Save the date of Oct. 7 for Sam Alexander’s civil service center, open from 9 to 11 a.m., and the October NARFE meeting beginning at 11 a.m., both in the Nolin RECC conference room.  The guest speaker is Rick Horn from the Elizabethtown Fire Department. He plans to bring information about safety for seniors.

All active and retired federal employees are invited. For information, call Mary Tom Haun, 270-862-9357.
