"I figured it was just part of getting older," she recalls. Then a friend told Doris about the Living Well with Chronic Con- ditions Workshop, six weekly ses- sions offered by Catholic Char- ities of the Diocese of St. Cloud. Developed at Stanford University, the Workshop has been offered at hundreds of locations throughout the United States. It helps partic- ipants with ongoing health con- ditions such as arthritis, diabe- tes, high blood pressure, anxiety, heart disease, and others to: • Find better ways of dealing with pain and fatigue • Discover easy exercises to help improve or maintain strength and energy • Learn the appropriate use of medications • Taught by specially trained vol- unteer leaders, some who have health conditions themselves, the program covers a new topic each week and provides opportunities for interaction and group prob- lem solving. "We are really more like coaches," says Mary Simpler, Catholic Charities Health Promo- tions Specialist, "The answer to someone's question is usually in the room." The next workshop begins Tuesday, April 19, and will take place every Tuesday from 2-4:30 p.m. for six weeks at the senior dining site at St. Anne's Church. For more information, or to enroll in the Living Well with Chronic Conditions Workshop, call the Mary Simpler at (320) 229- 4591 or Rosalea Hoeft at (320) 398- 2211 ext.13. Band has just returned from a tour to New York City from March 23-27. After a bumpy start fight- ing a snowstorm that shut down much of Central Minnesota, the band was able to reach New York by Thursday afternoon. The band had to do some juggling with the itinerary to make things fit, but they were flexible and adapted quite well. The group's first experiences were the Empire State Build- ing to see what they were get- ting into, followed by some free time on Times Square, and fin- Greenwich Village of the BlueMan Group. What a great start to the trip! The next day saw the band on the Today Show's outdoor film- ing, taking a walking tour of Cen- tral Park, and spending some time in Little Italy and China Town. The band then walked across the Brooklyn Bridge to St. Paul's Cha- pel and the 911 museum. Following that, the band had an excellent performance at South Street Seaport, hopped the subway (yes, the NYC subway-an experi- ence for all!) for Grand Central Sta- tion and the evening performance way. The final day in New York took the band to the Statue of Liberty on a beautiful, sunny day, a walk through Battery Park and tours of Radio City Music Hall followed by lunch at the Hard Rock Care/New York and a long bus ride home. The band represented the com- munity of Kimball in a wonderful fashion in performance, respon- sibility and behavior. The band would like to thank all of the many community people who have sup- ported us through fundraising and sponsorship which allowed us to take this once-in-a-lifetime trip. [
