Winter Weather Policy (Fitchburg Senior Center)

Received the following statement from Jill. Please note that if Madison school is closed, there will be no classes as well. If you feel it is unsafe to get to class on Thursday mornings, please don’t attempt to. Better to be safe than be sorry. If I have to cnacel a class, I will call the center and let them know as well.

— Khiang

From: Jill McHone, Senior Center Director

In the event of inclement weather, the Senior Center will automatically cancel both the home delivered and congregate meal programs when Oregon schools are closed. The cancellation of all other programs will be at the discretion of the Senior Center Director and/or Class Instructor. It will be the responsibility of the instructor to notify class participants of any cancellations or to encourage participants to call the Senior Center for cancellation information. If an instructor needs to cancel a class due to weather or other circumstances, they must call the Senior Center as soon as possible. If it is outside of our working hours (8am-4pm), please leave a message on our main line. We will then include the cancellation information on our phone message as well as rely to all staff. Please note that in the rare occasion that the City of Fitchburg makes a decision to close, ALL Senior Center activities will be automatically canceled.

If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at work, 270-4290 or on my cell, 772-4867.

CZQ’s advice on how to get better in my practice

1) Ding – stability

2) All the other things you hear about doing taiji :-) elbows down, shoulders relax, sit in your kua, body upright, etc. etc. Inside wound up, outside calm.
