Jazzy Music and Happy Exercise
Marvin stays up all night so he won’t miss the Sit and Be Fit class. (He’s not a morning person.) Because he gets here early, he sets up the room for his friends.
This unique exercise program utilizes innovative and less strenuous ways to improve fitness for anyone. Sit and Be Fit meets every Wednesday morning from 9:30-10:30. Led by Mary Beth from the YMCA, classes keep up an enjoyable pace, with lots of laughter and music that keeps the spirits high.
Register at any point in the program. Registrations are currently open by calling UCOM at 616.241.4006. This activity also counts toward nutrition/exercise requirements for NOW (Nutritional Options for Wellness) Pantry participants who are managing chronic illnesses through diet and exercise.
No More Dreading Tax Day
Last year IRS-trained volunteers at UCOM helped 190 people get back $250,000 in tax refunds. Total charge to the participants: $0. This is a collaborative effort of numerous local churches and organizations. It is coordinated by the Kent County Tax Credit Coalition.
UCOM is now making appointments. Beginning February 4 hours are Thursday nights 5:15-8:15 and Saturdays 10a-1p by appointment only.
People who would like to volunteer to be a non-tax-preparing helper should ask for Shawn Keener.
Student nurses from Calvin College will return to UCOM to do free blood-pressure and diabetes tests for anyone 9:15-11:15a on Tuesdays Feb 9, 16, 23 and March 1.
Watch for more information here about a class on a pertinent health issue on March 1, 9:15-1115a.
