THE JOURNAL, Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016 3 m i KG-YMCA 'AOA' group news YMCs across the country have many programs for many ages. One of them is the 'gtOA" group, Active Older Adults. Designed for folks in the "senior years", these groups meet on a regular basis creating fellow- ship and community outside of one's house. This is not a physical exercise class, but an exercise group for the mind and well being. The AOA group at the King George Y meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. There is usually a meal and a speaker. The AOA committee PrOvides a main course and guests provide the sides to go with it. Recent lunches includ- ed a baked potato bar, chili cook-off, sandwiches and this month will be a main course Salads menu. Greens will be provided by the committee, and guests will bring salad dressings or toppings. If a guest chooses not to bring a food item, a $5 donation would be appreciated to help defray costs. Recent speakers included Love Thy Neighbor program here in KG. The group has had a chef, chiroprac- tor, fire/rescue tips, and financial ex- perts. This month, March 1, the speaker will be a representative from Colo- nial Beach Village, Inc. and infor- mation on their non-profit Aging In Place program. The organization of each Village is unique. The Villagers decide how they want things to be run. Members are the driving force behind all actions the Village takes. Why do we need a Village in Colo- nial Beach? There are 1,470 individ- uals over 65 in the 22443 zip code. Nationally, 12.4 percefit of the popu- lation is over 65. In Colonial Beach, 19.5 percent of the population is over 65. Seniors are moving away from the Beach as they age. The meetings are held at the KG YMCA, unless otherwise noted. On March 15, the AOA group will be taking a bus trip to Angelo's in Montross for a lunch on your own & to hear Master Gardener & Cer- tified Master Naturalist Ted Munns give a talk on preparing your garden for the upcoming planting & grow- ing season. Sign up at the front desk of the Y. There will be a $5 charge to ride the bus. C'mon out and meet new friends, see old friends, nosh on great food and learn something new!

The students were resporsible for advertising the collection and -taking up items on a daily basis The food drive provided a learning opportunity as well, carefully keeping data on which types of items they collected and creating graphs to visually represent the different types of items.Altogether, the food drive collected 320 non-perish- able food items. The experience went full circle when students took a field trip to the food bank to see where the food they collected is stored and went to Ebenezer Church to help distribute the food which included bagging bread, taking bags out to cars, and runoing tickets. Students found the experience to be fun and exciting.
