Elizabeth has been active in the YMCA Tai Chi program for six years, and still participates weekly. She said, "it is so enjoyable." Tai Chi is good for improving balance and helping to make you feel more secure getting around. Fern Reitmeyer, YMCA Tai Chi instructor, said that the exercise also helps improve the mind, helps to make you more calm, concentrate better, and gives you an overall positive attitude.
Elizabeth retired from Pell Roofing and Siding after 22 years. She is active in the Harmony United Methodist Church and is a member of the Thursday Afternoon Club.
Friends and family are invited to attend the luncheon.
