You can start on the road to better health with Stay Strong-Stay Healthy, an eight week strength training program offered by MU Extension. The evidence-based program is a series of simple, strength-building exercises that will improve balance, health and state of mind. It's not strenuous weight lifting, rather, everyone starts at a level that is right for them. No one is too inactive to participate. In fact, strength-building activities promote quality of life and independence, especially for adults over age 60.

More information on the class, starting October 30th, is available at the North East Public Library. (816) 701-3485.

In class you will learn basic English skills: grammar, listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, and conversation. No fee or books required.
