MOVIN’ TOGETHER – IT’S A STRETCH
Has your get up and go got up and left? Well, it’s time to get it back! Whether you are 65 years old like me, Sara, a 20-year-old like Morgan, or even 6 like Julianna, we can all practice healthy habits that make us feel better and want to get going! We are women, encouraging women of all ages—to be their best, feel their best, look their best, and do their best for others as women of strength.
This time we are discussing great shoes, stretching, and posture!
Pick shoes that are designed to meet the needs of your particular activity! A specialized pair of shoes are an investment that has lasting benefits. What does a really good shoe do for the wearer? According to the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society, proper-fitting shoes can enhance performance and prevent injury. There are running, training, and walking shoes. Walking shoes can be further broken into classifications such as hiking, jogging, and exercise walking shoes.

ART FROM THE HEART – DISTRICT ART SHOW
It was a hit – an evening of “the arts”!
Wednesday evening hundreds of people gathered at the Wellsboro Administration building to celebrate the talented students of Wellsboro Area School District. There were over 1,200 pieces of artwork on display in addition to the Women’s Ensemble and Dickens Choir. The Steps of Expression took the stage and performed many creative routines. The kids also had a blast doing interactive art with Pop’s Culture Shoppe and giving “shout outs” on the radio as KC 101.5 broadcasted the festivities.
The Annual District Art show is a great way to showcase the vast talents in the community. It takes months of planning and preparation, but when it all comes together it is such a benefit for the students. The high school, middle school, and elementary art teachers collaborate to provide the best opportunity for all art students K- 12. However, it couldn’t happen without all the hours/days dedicated by parent volunteers – they are spectacular!
