Spring Schedule of Special Programs

Donna McLay in her studio smTel Hai’s Life Enrichment Committee (LEC) will offer a series of engaging programs through the month of May on the Tel Hai campus located off Beaver Dam Road. All programs will be held in the Gathering Room of the Garrett Community Center. Subject matter ranges from memoir writing to a spirited sing-along.

On Friday, May 9, the Memoir Workshop led by Donna McLay will offer a reading of their recent work at 1:00pm. The popular Alex Haley quote—“Each person’s death is like the burning of a library”—reflects the impact each person’s shared experiences can have on others. As the workshop members read their unique stories attendees may find they, too, wish to create a record of their own life experiences to share with family and friends.

Friday, May 16 at 1:00pm, Tel Hai Dietitian, Sybil Oswalt will present a program on food choices and preparation methods to ensure your summer barbeque won’t derail your healthy eating resolutions. You can still be the “grill king” and eat well!

The final program will be offered on Friday, May 23 at 1:00pm featuring Sheldon Munn. This former restaurateur and jeweler found his passion as a licensed Gettysburg Battlefield tour guide in 1988. Sheldon finds everything “exciting, interesting and fun” when tracing Pennsylvania history and that of “outstanding Pennsylvanians.” This presentation will focus on the lives of Grace Kelly and Perry Como—who became household names during a romantic era of song and theater. The two-hour program will share information through lecture, humor and music. Refreshments will be offered and a sing-along is also planned! A $5 donation is suggested.

The general public is invited to join in these programs planned for May on the Tel Hai campus. Tel Hai, a nationally accredited nonprofit community offers a variety of housing, personal and health care, rehabilitation, and Child Day Care services in their Honey Brook location.
