Lake County Cooperative Extension to offer three programs next week, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 4

RELEASE DATE: January 30, 2009

TAVARES — The Lake County Cooperative Extension is hosting three programs next week beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 4, with “Strategies for Successful Aging” programs at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Lake County Agricultural Center, located at 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares.

“The one-hour program will help participants develop a plan to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle,” said Julie England, a Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent with the Lake County Cooperative Extension. “Aging well doesn’t just happen for most people. Successful aging is a multi-part effort that includes planning ahead, staying physically active, maintaining social contacts and mental well-being.”

Pre-registration is appreciated but not required. For more information or for program registration, call Rene Bass at (352) 343-4101 or e-mail rcbass@ufl.edu.

The third program next week, “De-Clutter Your Life,” is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. at the Fruitland Park Library, located at 205 W. Berckman St.

“This program will assist participants with developing a personal ‘clear the clutter strategy’ by learning the principles of good storage, how long and where to store important documents and how to overcome barriers to organization,” England said.

Reservations are appreciated but not required. For more information or for program registration, call the Fruitland Park Library at (352) 360-6561.
