Life Enrichment members are busy

Life Enrichment members had a busy month in November at Butler Community College in El Dorado.

Members were introduced to staff and the first class from Project Search.

Project SEARCH is a school to work transition program increasing the employability skills of young adults with IEPs. The mission is for the interns to become successful, independent adults in jobs of their choice.

Members visited with each student and learned more about their goals for the future.

The students help each Tuesday morning setting up table decorations and host tasks.

In addition, the Senior Class Act dramatroupe from Wichita performed many dramatic readings and laughs were had by all.

At another meeting, the program Bucket Lists & Looking Back: What was worth the work? was given by Karen Roth Ridder and sponsored by a grant from the Kansas Humanities Council.

Brett Kappleman and Carla Hess presented information on the med manager program through Golden Plains Pharmacy.

The Butler Community College fourth semester nursing instructors and students educated members with a health fair covering topics members wanted to learn more about.

Life Enrichment is an educational, entertaining and cultural program for citizens 60 years of age and over.

The membership fee is $25 a year to join which includes a monthly newsletter, weekly meetings and information on group trips.
