TED TALKS: NATALIE PANEK: LET'S CLEAN UP THE SPACE JUNK ORBITING EARTH

 

Our lives depend on a world we can't see: the satellite infrastructure we use every day for information, entertainment, communication and so much more. But Earth orbit isn't a limitless resource, and the problem of space debris will get worse without a significant change to our behavior. Join us as Natalie Panek challenges us to consider the environmental impact of the satellites we rely on and to participate in a discussion following the brief film.

FRESHLY MINTED MEMORIES.
Here's just a sampling of recent events we've filed under 'fun.'

Galentine’s Breakfast with Musical Entertainment by Travelin’ Light-

 

This special Valentine’s celebration was just for the gals, hence the term Galentine, which made this event extra girly. The Willows Concert Lounge was transformed into a gourmet breakfast café decorated to the nines with plenty of pink, red and magenta flowers with chocolates sprinkled between. Mimosas and fresh coffee were served alongside assorted pastries, mini-quiches and yogurt parfaits. The cutest festive food of the morning was bacon sliced and baked into the shape of a heart! Our musical entertainment, Travelin’ Light, sang classic romantic tunes on the piano and led us in a few amusing rounds of Name that Tune. Three lucky attendees went home with a door prize, though all who attended went home with chocolates and smiles on their faces!

 

 

Brain Health Presentation with Linda Henderson-

 

Devoted to active-aging and wellness, Linda Henderson visited The Willows this month to share the latest ideas, concepts and strategies on brain health. Linda’s expertise includes being a clinical social worker, speaker, author and former Director of Public Health and Adult & Aging Services in Ventura County, CA. During her presentation, Linda emphasized that staying intellectually and socially active as we age are the two most important factors in maintaining brain health and ultimately, life satisfaction. She urged attendees to take up challenging pursuits, such as learning a new language or musical instrument, to stay sharp. Linda proved to be a dynamic and inspirational speaker and we hope to have her return to The Willows for a future engagement.

 

 

Share the Love: 2017 Giving Tree Meeting-

 

The Willows Giving Tree was created years ago to inspire our staff and residents to share the love. This group of warm-hearted people seek out charities and areas of the community in need of donations. To get our giving on track for the year, we set up a Giving Tree meeting. At the meeting, residents on the far-reaching branches of the Giving Tree gave their suggestions for local organizations that they would like to work with and populations that they consider in need of a helping hand. With this renewed sense of purpose, we are eager to begin planning events or donation drives with charitable organizations in mind! We plan to focus this year’s efforts on the homeless population in Bellingham, several organizations benefitting children, and those that work to help keep local animals happy and healthy.
