Virtual programming continues into spring

The Best Times Digital Edition

February 24, 2021

The 50 Plus staff at Johnson County Park and Recreation District miss the face-to-face interaction with patrons, however, virtual programming is a way for staff to stay connected to the patrons and keep them connected to their community.

The 50 Plus Department values the importance of emotional health, community connections and general wellness of patrons. Professionals in the community continue to offer their expertise on topics such as Medicare enrollment, joint health, self-empowerment, wise credit tips and everyday mindfulness.

Upcoming complimentary virtual programs include:

  • “Sleep-Want It, Need It, How to Get It!” at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 18
  • “Common Sense Budgeting” at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 15.
  • “GMOs - What Are They? Why Should I Care?” at 11 a.m. Thursday,  April 22.

For the game enthusiasts, they can play “Hollywood Bingo” on Tuesday, March 16; “Earth Day Bingo" on Thursday, April 1; and “Totally 90’s Trivia” on Wednesday, April 14. All game programs start at 1:30 p.m.
