Just say no to the winter blues

We at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center know no one wants to think about the coming winter right now; we are still getting over the loss of summer. But I must remind you that a great way to beat the rainy day doldrums is to participate in activities at the ACC.

We have classes to keep your blood flowing and your body moving such as Zumba, dance aerobics, strength training, boot camp, Body in Motion and more.

If you are more of the creative type, we are offering a holiday poetry greeting card workshop, candle making, popular lecturer Fritz Balwit’s discussion of his travel, guitar, choral group, keyboard and more.

The dark winter days are a great time to learn more about your computer. We are offing classes on Facebook, Excel, Word, Windows 8, MAC classes and more.

Who doesn’t love to eat at this time of year and hide in big sweaters?

We are taking two lunch trips, one to Cafe Mingo Italian in downtown Portland on Nov. 13 and one to Elephant’s Deli on Corbett Dec. 11.

Take the opportunity the chilly weather provides to get out of the house and do something good for yourself, keep the blues away.

Call 503-635-3758 to register and get pricing for any and all the activated mentioned above, register for other classes and events and make lunch reservations.

The LOACC is located at 505 G. Ave. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
