Line Dance is a big hit at the Senior Circle. There was a packed house at the first line dance class on April 9. We had to crank down the air conditioning because everyone was working up a sweat. This is a great way to stay fit and have fun.

Diane Frederick Bedsworth will be hosting the April 26 Diabetic Support Group. The group meets at the Senior Circle office from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Bedsworth is a registered dietitian. She has spent more than 30 years working with hospital food service teams across the United States. Most recently she retired from Payson Regional Medical Center in 2007 where she was director of food and nutrition services. The diabetic support group is open to anyone dealing with diabetic issues. Please register for this informational event at (928) 472-9290.

Dr. Cynthia Booth will be holding a round table discussion at the next Senior Circle Lunch and Learn. The program will be from 11 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, April 28. A light lunch will be served and is free to Senior Circle members. The event will discuss women’s wellness checks for women over 50, osteoporosis and how the new healthcare bill might affect care.
