The Board of Trustees wish all Penn National residents a happy and healthy 2015. Groundhog Day is February 2 and I’m ready for Spring. As you know, Penn National is an active community with many social and cultural programs and activities enabling residents to live an active lifestyle. The Support Network at Penn National (SNaP) is an active membership organization that encourages living life to the fullest. SNaP also promotes planning for the future, especially when life's unexpected twists and turns land on our doorsteps. These twists and turns often bring about changes that require us to depend on others for a short time or in some cases, for a longer time. Over the holidays, the Board of Trustees have been busy putting together programs we hope you will find informative and useful. Our programs are designed to help members stay healthy and be better informed and prepared to plan for their future now rather than later. The first three programs in the series are listed on page two of this newsletter.

Brown making calls We could not do this important fundraiser without the volunteers who step up each year to make it a success. We’ll do it again next year with everyone’s help.

Page 3 Summit Health Programs Survey If you have not already done so, please participate in the survey at http://snapn.org/Summit_survey.php to help determine what kinds of seminars will be presented by Summit Health at Penn National in the next several months. This is a joint venture by Summit Health, White Rock, and SNaP, and its main purpose is to address topics that are currently of interest to our residents. Medical Equipment for Loan, Rent or Sale SNaP has a few members who are willing to loan walkers or canes for members in need. However, it is best to take the equipment to your physician or physical therapist for proper height measurement. If you have medical equipment or assistive devices that you can offer to other SNaP members in need, call the SNaP office. The office cannot store any equipment or devices. All types of medical equipment can be loaned, rented, or sold at various locations. Check out the Resources tab on the SNaP website for details. Meet the Artist Anne Lynott is a Penn National resident and SNaP member. A nurse by profession, Anne retired and moved to Fayetteville from Virginia. At 65, she took her first watercolor painting class from Ruth Durbin. With Virginia Hair, Anne traveled to England and attended several watercolor workshops. Anne enjoys painting a variety of subjects and says “she must like the subject in order to paint it.” Along with a group of eight to ten other students, Anne takes weekly classes from Carol Rinehart at the Grove Family Library, where her note cards are on display. Anne has eight paintings on display at the “Small Wonders” exhibit at the Council for the Arts, 159 S. Main Street, Chambersburg. The exhibit runs until February 20.
