Jimmy Mazz Returns!
Save the date! Another favorite performer is coming back to Bay Village! Jimmy Mazz returns to the stage on Thursday, August 30th, at 7:30 p.m. With 40+ years of entertainment experience as a Headliner in Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, Jimmy Mazz truly understands how to entertain an audience! His versatility and song selection are key. Combined with his unique ability to sound like the original artist in many cases, his voice is rich and elegant. His energetic visual performance and relaxed antics really entertain. This is partly why this is his fourth time performing here! Jimmy is also enjoyed for his candid humor, amusing trivia and intriguing song styling. You are in for an evening you won’t soon forget.

News from ADULT & COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT: We apologize for last month’s series of classes with Bob Clementis’ “Foreign Affairs” will not be held in the future due to unreliability of the instructor and inability to stay on topic.

Our current series from Teaching Company DVD is “The American West”. Part two begins on August 7th. Part one was extremely well attended and received!
Between 1861 and 1865, the clash of the greatest armies the Western hemisphere had ever seen turned small towns, little-known streams, and obscure meadows in the American countryside into names we will always remember. In those great battles streams ran red with blood, and the United States was truly born.
Our final class in part 2 is on September 11th. Local Historian Jeff LaHurd joins us for a special presentation on Thursday, August 2nd at 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium. He is the author of several books of local history. His articles have appeared in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Style Magazine, The Sarasota Observer, SARASOTA Magazine, SRQ, and The Downtowner.

Sail Our Seas News
As you read about a few months ago in Petra’s Wellness Corner, we try to have a large event celebrating the seven dimensions of wellness every few years:
- Intellectual Wellness: encourages creative, stimulating mental activities.
- Spiritual Wellness: promotes seeking meaning and purpose in one’s life.
- Emotional Wellness: encourages individuals to be positive and enthusiastic about oneself and their life and to have healthy relationships with others.
- Environmental Wellness: promotes harmony between one’s life and the earth and encourages the individual to minimize harm to the environment.
- Social Wellness: promotes interdependence with others and encourages harmony in one’s family and friendships.
- Occupational Wellness: encourages individuals to hold a job or volunteer position that will give them a sense of personal satisfaction and enrichment.
- Physical Wellness: promotes knowledge of food, nutrition, and physical activity that will better the health of one’s body.
Each of these dimensions of wellness is of equal importance when it comes to maintaining an individuals personal wellness. Over the next three months we will keep track of your participation on our map of the Caribbean hanging in the wellness center. You get “points” for all the activities you participate in that foster the seven dimensions. BON VOYAGE!!
