Activity #283000.01 Date: Friday, March 21 Time: 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Colorado has experienced flooding many times in the past and even occasionally in September,  but it has been decades since there was a flood of the magnitude, area and duration as the Colorado floods of September 2013. Nolan Doesken will review how this flood occurred and then look back to see how it compares to some of the great floods of Colorado's recorded history. Nolan Doesken is the state climatologist from CSU and is known for his presentation skills and ability to convey scientific research in an interesting manner.

Join Dale Rademacher, Longmont’s Director of Public Works and Natural Resources, for this behind-the-scenes look at the flood of September 2013.  His depth of knowledge coupled with his maps and PowerPoint presentation will help illustrate what goes into trying to determine a flood plain, what the City did to try to mitigate the impact of potential flooding, the event itself, and where we go from here.  Did the flooding follow the predictions?  Were we ready?  These questions and more will be answered.

The Oxford Inklings: Love and Literature

Activity #284411.01 Date: Wednesdays, March 5, 12, 19, 26 Time: 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Cost: $12.00 resident, $15.00 non-resident C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity, was famously a member of a circle of intellectual and literary friends known as the Oxford Inklings. The group included J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams and Owen Barfield. In 1958, C.S. Lewis gave a series of radio talks that was eventually published as The Four Loves, a philosophical exploration of affection, friendship, romance and divine love. Using The Four Loves, this course asks how the lives and works of the Inklings were shaped by their relationships. From the sometimes raucous gatherings of the Inklings themselves to Lewis's brief, intense marriage to the American poet Joy Davidman to Charles Williams's cult of romantic love, we will examine the hearts of these great men to find clues to the ways in which love shaped their legacies. It is not necessary to have read The Four Loves or other works of the Inklings before beginning this course.

C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and their friends, known collectively as the Oxford Inklings, were writers drawn together by a love of myth, legend and of what Tolkien called "the fairy-story." Both Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings have been dismissed by critics as escapist and the adults who cherish these stories labeled as childish. This course examines the indispensible role the fairy-story can play in enriching the life of even the most responsible adult. We will look at how feeding our imaginations can both feed our souls and yield some very practical benefits for a better life.

Things as They Are Meant to Be Seen: The Oxford Inklings on Art and Literature
Activity #284411.03 Date: Wednesdays, May 7, 14, 21, 28 Time: 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Cost: $12.00 resident, $15.00 non-resident

Founding authors of imaginative fiction such as George MacDonald and J.R.R. Tolkien worried that we become so used to the world that we cease to wonder at it, cease to question it and may even cease to know its worth.  Tolkien wrote, "We need ... to clean our windows; so that the things seen clearly may be freed from the drab blur of triteness or familiarity". One very effective way to do this is to learn to see as the artist, poet or storyteller sees in a moment of inspiration. Whether or not you have ever considered yourself to be a creative type, you can learn from authors like Tolkien and C.S. Lewis to access your imagination and regain your sense of wonder.

Back by popular demand! There is more material to be covered so Ed Weising is returning with more stories of the scoundrels that gave the west a bad image. In days gone by, they could often get away with their lies, cheating, tricks, cons, murders and thefts for much longer than they can today, as they moved from place to place. Who were these men and what did they do to earn such a reputation? In this presentation you will learn about fascinating scoundrels who roamed through Colorado causing havoc wherever they went.

Learn how the Civil War impacted Colorado in the 1860’s: Whose side were we on? Were there any major battles in Colorado? Were Colorado volunteers engaged in any battles elsewhere? Why were our first two territorial governors forced to resign? These and other questions will be answered as we study Colorado in the context of the Civil War. Ed Weising, presenter.

Urban Renewal to Historic Preservation

Activity #284301.00 Date: Wednesday, March 12 Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Cost: $4.00 resident, $4.50 non-resident Do you remember a time when no one wanted anything old? We took old furniture to the second hand store or the town dump. We covered old buildings with aluminum siding if we couldn’t afford to demolish them. Let’s take a look at how we came to appreciate what we were about to throw away. In historic terms, the change in public opinion was rapid. It has had a dramatic impact on our homes, our cities, and our lifestyles. The primary focus of this program will be to consider how changing values affected public policy. While considering the historic trends, it will be fun to reflect on the changes each of us has experienced. Larry Ralston, presenter.

Paul Flanders will present the stories of these unique and courageous people. George Whitefield -- How one man changed the world in the 1730s and helped lead The Great Awakening. Robert Morris -- The genius who devised a way to finance the American Revolution; probably more valuable than any single general or politician. Sojourner Truth –  A remarkable African American woman who overcame social criticism by speaking out for women’s rights in the 19th century. Robert LaFollett --  Governor of Wisconsin who introduced dozens of reforms during the Progressive Era, eventually all copied by the other states.

Central City: The Cornish, The Irish and Aunt Clara

The Gold Rush of 1859 brought thousands of men to the hills of Colorado. Mining towns sprang up with saloons, gambling, and prostitution. Learn how the denominations to the east of Colorado rose to the challenge by sending missionaries into the region. Along with the bedlam there was a spiritual hunger among the prospectors – a longing for someone to come and share some Good News amidst the squalor and misery of the mining camps.

Activity #284305.00 Date: Wednesday, May 14 Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Cost: $4.00 resident, $4.50 non-resident In the midst of the Civil War, Congress and President Lincoln took another bold step in the nation’s continuing commitment to education for the common man. Under terms of the Morrill Act, each state was given a large grant of government land in the west to be used to finance a college focused on "agriculture and the mechanical arts". Today these schools remain at the forefront of public higher education. Engineering and agriculture are most often still considered important strengths. Colorado State University, formerly Colorado A & M (where did that A & M come from?), is one of those colleges. In later years, agriculture research and extension education became important adjuncts to the agriculture education efforts. Let’s explore how this unique educational concept originated and developed. We won’t overlook the importance of the 1890 institutions in the era of "separate but equal". Larry Ralston, presenter.

Longmont Senior Services and the Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) have created an exciting partnership to bring exceptional independent films to Longmont. A BIFF representative will present each film and facilitate a brief discussion. The films are projected onto a screen so they are larger and easier to see.

What’s Co-Housing All About? And What Isn’t It?
Activity #288007.00 Date: Thursday, April 24 Time: 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Cost: FREE, but please register in advance

Co-housing communities are small-scale neighborhoods created with active resident participation where neighbors know each other, are co-creators of the project, and continue to work together after moving in.  An important aspect of life in a co-housing community is the balance between personal privacy and life in a close-knit community of neighbors.  In co-housing, individual homes are privately owned. At the same time, homeowners enjoy convenient access to shared amenities, including a Common House, which typically includes a kitchen and a dining room, guest rooms, office space, a sitting area/library and laundry facilities.  AND, you will learn about how you might use the concept of co-housing in other residential settings. Join Arthur Okner in a conversation to learn about the concept of co-housing. Arthur is the official "Elder Ambassador" and co-founder of the Elder Co-housing Network, a Boulder, Colorado-based organization. He is currently an advisor and associate member of Silver Sage Village (www.SilverSageVillage.com) in Boulder, Colorado, which is the first Elder Co-housing neighborhood in Colorado and the third in the nation.

Our brains may represent only 2% of our total body mass, but they use 20% of our blood and oxygen to maintain their complex function. There are many interesting facts to know about our brains, but our real interest naturally lies in what we can do to keep them functioning as optimally as possible. For example, what role do brain exercises, overall fitness, diet and lifestyle play in maintaining healthy brains? How do we become more discerning about all the marketing ploys to improve brain function? John Dean, MA, CCC SLP, of Life Care Center, has been teaching classes on brain fitness at the Longmont Senior Center for some time and always receives rave reviews for his presentations.

Essential oils were mankind’s first medicine.  From Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, we know that priests and physicians have been using oils derived from aromatic plants for thousands of years.  Additionally, there are 188 references to essential oils in the Bible.  Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin, and they contain oxygen molecules that help transport nutrients to the starving human cells.  These oils are very powerful antioxidants, which help keep our bodies healthy and feeling (and smelling) fine!  In this time of health care reform and transformation, we can return to ancient wisdom and use the essential oils from plants as preventive medicine to keep ourselves well! Our presenters are John Lee, with DoTerra Aromatherapy, and Laura Staisiunas, Medication Safety Pharmacist and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist at Longmont United Hospital.

Barb Warner, author of Keep Your Fork-Dessert Is on the Way, will be talking about designing the second half of life with new knowledge about the myths of aging and studies that show how our expectations of aging create our experiences. There are many desirable abilities that increase as we age, such as creativity, resilience, perspective and wisdom, that are not sufficiently valued by our culture. In this interactive session, Barb will inspire us to discover our own genuine value and to explore the power we have to make creative and courageous life choices. Please join her in exploring this exciting new chapter waiting for us to embrace. After retiring, Barb wondered what was next. She couldn't find a book to answer that question, so she decided she needed to write the book herself. She continues to enjoy learning from her life experiences.

May is Older Americans Month and what better time than spring to explore healing! At this time of year, what was wounded by cold is returning to health. Just as with the earth, our health can be restored after dark and difficult times. We’ll listen to stories and reflect on physical, mental and spiritual healing. How do we accept, fix, and treat our bodies after illness? How do we restore and set right our troubled minds? How do we make whole a broken spirit? Just listening to stories can restore our bodies, minds, and spirits. But listening with a purpose and metaphor can be even more nourishing. Come and experience a time for healing with story! For over 25 years, Kathleen Santopietro Weddel has told adult stories for businesses, schools, churches, libraries, health care facilities, and personal parties.  She is also an adult educator with a background in English as a Second Language.  Kathleen is a member of the National Storytelling Network, Rocky Mountain Storytellers, and the Northern Colorado Storytellers.

Nordic Walking - Back by popular demand

Feldenkrais®: Regain Your Youthful Movement

As we age our abilities decline, thereby compromising our balance, range of motion and our adaptability to new situations. Turn back the clock with Feldenkrais lessons.  Each Feldenkrais class explores a new movement sequence that invigorates your brain and nervous system with new ways of organizing and sensing your movement. The result? A more youthful feeling of movement, improved balance and better outlook on life.

Nordic walking is defined as fitness walking with specially designed light-weight poles. The many benefits appeal to people of different ages and fitness levels and is especially useful for people with balance concerns, Arthritis, MS and Parkinson’s. Two of the best things about it is that it can be done anywhere; sidewalks, trails, parks, and in any kind of weather. Learning the correct technique allows you to "open up" the short and tight muscles in front of the body (hip flexors, pectorals and shoulder muscles), and strengthen weak muscles in the back of the body (calves, hamstrings, glutes, back and triceps). By sitting too much, we create this front/ back imbalance. This class will meet in the gymnasium to start and then move outdoors in Roosevelt Park. Dress appropriately for being outdoors on the days of class. Taught by Hope Engel PT, DPT, GCS, Outpatient Rehab Manager, Summit Rehab.

Trip & Registration Information
Trips are scheduled on various modes of transit: minibuses, school buses, and coach buses. The style of bus is dependent upon cost, size of group, and time and distance traveled, as well as availability of buses. We always try to be cost efficient and comfort oriented. Departure times are definite. We do not wait for participants past the designated departure time either from the Senior Center or returning to the Senior Center. Return times are approximate. Please do not schedule appointments close to the return times; we never know when delays may occur. Bus seat assignments are made at the time of check-in. Participants draw a seat number for themselves and one other person (shared seating). These assigned seats are used both going to and from the trip destination. For extended trips, you will draw new seats each day. Cancellations must be received by the dates printed in The GO if a full credit or refund is to be given. After that date, a partial credit or refund may be issued only if the spot is resold. Cancellations must be processed through the Senior Center. When possible, the staff will attempt to resell your spot to the first person on the waiting list, or if it is last minute and the Senior Center is closed, you may give your ticket to a person of your choice. Please call 303-651-8442, if you do so.
