LHU is topic at Covenant Cafe

LOCK HAVEN — Joby Topper, director of Library and Information Services at Lock Haven University will be the guest presenter at the next meeting of The Covenant Cafe, an early stage Alzheimer’s activity group, on Tuesday, Feb. 18, from 1-3 p.m. at Covenant United Methodist Church, 44 W. Main St., Lock Haven.

His topic will be “Lock Haven University, 1870-2020: Highlights of the First 150 Years.” Originally the Central State Normal School, the college was established on Feb. 14, 1870.

Following the historical talk, volunteer Eleanor Kodish, a retired teacher and elementary school principal, will read the beautifully illustrated book “The Sunshine on My Face.” The group will also observe a moment of gratitude as part of their New Year’s resolution. The session will end with volunteer Kitty Oechler conducting a seated Tai Chi class. The public is invited to attend.

The Covenant Cafe is a joint venture between the Outreach and Witness Committee of Covenant United Methodist, the Alzheimer’s Support Group and the Alzheimer’s Association. Participants in this group are given an opportunity to be involved in socially and physically stimulating programs which will help them remain as active as possible.

New members are always welcome. Individuals and families who are interested in being involved in this special program are invited to call Fran Decker, MSW at (570) 748-4302 or (570) 263-2084 or at fdecker@kcnet.org for further information.
