Dorothy and Stephanie were pleased to present a cheque to Acclaim Health on behalf of all the attendees at the April 1st Spring Fling Dance Party.

Acclaim Health is dedicated to providing a broad spectrum of community health support services to the Halton region. Its mission is to provide people with quality, community-based health care solutions. The funds raised at Spring Fling are in support of Acclaim Health’s many free community programs for seniors, including support for frail isolated seniors through friendly visits and telephone reassurance calls, home exercise programs to help increase frail seniors’ strength, balance and mobility, volunteer visits to people with memory impairment and support to their caregivers, as well ongoing support for their hospice program.

With so many free programs, Acclaim Health needs community support to keep  services up and running.  You can help support Acclaim’s many programs Friday, May 5th at Party with a Purpose.  Tickets are still available, so join us there and pick up your ticket soon. Tax receipts will be available following the event.

 

 

Good News – Dancing Is Good For You! There’s Proof!

Yes, according to research, dancing may be the best exercise both physically and mentally as we age!  Here’s a recent article from the Globe & Mail discussing the findings that prove moving to music, learning new things and socializing is all good for the brain.

We’re doing our part to ensure everyone stays healthy, once a month at Halton Dance Party!  We had a great event on Saturday April 1st with lots of attendees and a great charity to support in Acclaim Health.  We had a drawing for a $50 Keg certificate and the lucky winner was thrilled with her prize.  To enter future contests be sure to submit your email to HaltonDanceParty@gmail.com so we can send you our contest and prize information as well as updates about upcoming dances and events.  Here are a few pics from the party!
