Purdue Extension Homemakers Present Educational Programs

Jan 17 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Porter County Fairgrounds and Expo Center - Valparaiso


Purdue Extension


What you do today will affect your future. Nowhere is this as true as it is in issues regarding aging. The way you take care of yourself through the years, both physically and mentally, will impact the natural process of aging. Centenarian studies demonstrate that life does not diminish with aging. In fact, 100-year-olds are teaching us that the acceptance of aging can be positive, joyful and exciting. Since there is no magic potion to stop the aging process, it is important to take care of your body, mind and spirit throughout your whole life. We will discuss 12 keys to encourage optimal aging and many additional healthy behavior practices throughout the lifespan. Linda Curley, Extension Educator, Health and Human Sciences, from Lake County will present the program. This program, “Optimal Aging”, will be held at the Expo Center at the Porter County Fairgrounds, 215 Division Rd, Valparaiso, IN 46383, at 1:00 PM on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.

Following at 2:00 PM is the second presentation, “Empower Me to Be Clutter Free”. Disorganization costs time and money and increases stress. You know you have stuff that needs to get out of the house but somehow you just can’t make yourself get rid of it. Now is the time to learn decluttering techniques and strategies for breaking the emotional bonds that keep you from letting go. This program will be presented by Annetta Jones, Extension Educator, Health and Human Sciences, from Porter County.

These programs are sponsored by the Porter County Extension Homemakers.
