On Thursday, November 5th at 4 pm, we have Dr. Ronald White giving a lecture in the auditorium: “PRP, Stem Cells or Minimally Invasive Hip or Knee Surgery. What’s Right for You? Learn More.”
If you have hip or knee problems, this is a good way to get informed about the different procedures available to you.
It is cooler outside, and the grounds invite you to go out and get some Vitamin D while walking around the pond. Multiple benches on the path invite you to stop and enjoy the scenery.
The pool will be open again in November and pool classes will start up again. It is a great workout, while easy on your joints and your balance.
Tai Chi is another way to stay flexible, strong and maintain good balance without too much impact on your joints. Come try a new class this month!
The final class in our current series from The Teaching Company, “Polar Explorations,” is on November 17th.
During this series, we will have 4 evenings that we take a “break” from the DVD, and speaker Baila Miller will present~ “Paris The Luminous Years (or La Belle Epoque (1870-1914)”. Our final class in this series is November 3rd.
Who would have dreamed that the once traditional city of Paris would become the center of freedom in Europe? This course examines the exhilarating, scandalous, and intimate relationships of young artists and authors who shaped this magical era that came to be known as “La Belle Epoque” (1870-1914).
Artists such as The French Impressionists, Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris, writers such as Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway, booksellers Sylvia Beach, Adrienne Monnier, and many others made up this legendary milieu.
Class four will be held on November 3rd at 7:30 p.m. and is titled: “The Lost Generation: Art Literature and Music.” In the early years of the 20th century, American’s, Gertrude Stein and Leo Stein, as well as Gertrude’s brother, Michael, and sister-in-law, Sarah Stein, were central figures in the creation of the avant-guarde, Paris Milieu. Their weekly Salons drew the artistic, musical and literary elite of their day.
They collected the works of Matisse, Picasso, Gris and countless others. Gertrude Stein encouraged the cult of modernist writers such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce. Her reach included composers Igor Stravinsky and Virgil Thompson.
Our next DVD series from the Teaching Company is “The History of Russia”, and it begins on November 24th. More information about this series will be on the flier you receive in your mailbox.
