May was quite a busy month - thank you for coming out and getting involved! I hope you enjoyed the parties, new entertainers, cultural programs, & Community Health Fair.
There will be plenty more opportunities to get out and about this month. The Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social will feature ice cream floats, 50’s décor, and live music by Bobby Socks & Doo Wop. The Polka Party will offer refreshments, live music, and a chance to show off those moves you learned in Ballroom Dancing!
Many of you have expressed an interest in nutrition & so we are delighted to welcome Nutrition Professor Martica Heaner, PhD, to Treemont on June 8th for a special showing of the documentary ‘Forks over Knives’, followed by a Nutrition Q&A Session with Dr. Heaner. Every participant will also get a copy of the Treemont dining menus with Dr. Heaner’s recommended choices outlined for each meal.
Many of you have also mentioned that you would like a forum to voice your suggestions on ways to improve life at Treemont. You asked and we’ve scheduled! We’ll be having the Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, June 6th at 1:45pm. Be sure to come by and hear the great suggestions from your friends & neighbors.
Finally, we will have several students from Strake Jesuit here to assist with Technology Help in June. Please watch for flyers advertising the dates and sign up at the front desk if you need help with your phone, tablet, or computer.

Wishing you a wonderful month,
What’s New at Treemont?
We’ve added a few new things to the June calendar… here’s a look at some programs you might like to check out!
Our Virtual Trip to France in May was a success, so we’ll be continuing on in our travels this month – to Italy! This culturally-focused program will introduce you to the history, geography, language, food & music of this iconic nation. The programs will be held on Fridays at 11am.
The TED Talk features short videos of exceptional speakers discussing every topic imaginable. We watch the video and follow it with a group discussion. This month’s TED Talk is by an exceptionally humorous speaker, Ken Robinson on the topic of creativity.
June will see the addition of two new fitness classes: a Chair Aerobics class (Thursdays at 2:30pm), and Fitness with Melissa, (Saturdays at 9am). Both programs will be held in the Activity Room and will feature a variety of exercises set to music. Why pay for a monthly gym membership? You can be taught by professional instructors right here at Treemont.
Newer movies were the request of many, as was an after-dinner activity, so we’ve created New Movie Monday, where we’ll show recently released films at 6:30pm in the Theater. Popcorn will be served!
Laughter Yoga was a part of Treemont life for over 4 years, and while we’ll never be able to replace it, we’ve found something pretty darn close! Therapy Thursday – to be held Thursdays at 10am - will be led by volunteer Kira and feature a rotation of art, music, and movement therapies. There will even be days with guided meditation!
Saturdays at 11am will feature Sound & Expression, a creative outlet for your emotions. Each week will feature a different activity to help relieve stress and improve well-being. Have fun and leave feeling relaxed with this great weekly program, also led by Kira.
