Now that the weather is warming up, it’s a great time to get more active. Why not add one of our exercise classes to your healthy living routine this summer? We’ve added several new exercise classes: "Mat Pilates", "Strength and Conditioning for Men", and a class for beginning exercisers called, “Ready, Set, Move!” (Please note that we will be moving our exercise classes from St. Luke’s to nearby Trinity Lutheran Church this summer.)

Some other highlights include:

• Our first event in partnership with Politics & Prose, the landmark D.C. bookstore (class #107).

• A new Men’s Discussion group on Mondays at the BCC Regional Services center in Bethesda (class #102).

• Twelve hot topic classes at our large offsite venue, Gilchrist Hall at the Johns Hopkins Montgomery County campus.

• Classes to help make life easier and safer, such as avoiding scams, ensuring home fire safety, saving money on your cable bill, and estate planning.

Please join us for a summer adventure...share the excitement, try a new class and explore our many volunteer opportunities. It’s YOUR time!

Your partners in living life to the fullest,
