Kewaunee Health & Fitness to offer Aging Mastery Program
Have you mastered the art of aging? The Aging Mastery Program® is a fun program that can help you improve your health, financial security, and overall well-being.
This wonderful opportunity can help you take small steps that result in lifelong rewards.
The first AMP session will be held at the Kewaunee Health & Fitness center and will run from October 2, 2018, through December 4, 2018. Each class will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Additional sessions are planned in Algoma and Luxemburg for 2019.
Pre-registration is required. There is a small fee of $15 per person or $20 per couple to partially offset the cost of the program workbooks provided to each participant.
This program is funded in part by generous donations from the Green Bay Packers Foundation and the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.
