The 2015 People Plus Senior Health Expo presented by Spectrum Generations held at the Cook's Corner Mall in Brunswick on Tuesday, Oct. 20, was another huge success! We had well over 600 participants with many receiving free flu shots, free massages, and many other free services!
A Spectrum Generations program, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls, is specifically designed to reduce fear of falling, stop the fear of falling cycle, and improve activity levels among community-dwelling older adults. The program includes eight two hour classes where participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable; to set realistic goals for increasing activity; to change their environment to reduce fall risk factors; to promote exercise to increase strength and balance.

Thank you so much to all that came out to visit Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick on Wednesday, April 29 to help support Brunswick-area youth at the annual Teen Center Scoop-a-thon event! More than 1000 people participated and we raised over $5500!!! Gelato Fiasco said it was their busiest event ever and their largest contribution ever! They estimate that on average, one dish of gelato, pint of gelato, or cup of coffee was served every 40 seconds for the entire 12-hour day!!
