"Is It Me or Is It My Hormones?" Health and Wellness Seminar

Join us for a special free seminar to learn how natural hormone replacement therapy can be used to alleviate many of the symptoms associated with menopause.
As women approach menopause, the body reduces the amount of hormones it produces. A loss of hormones can result in symptoms such as hot flashes, memory lapses, depression, sleeplessness, headaches, and hair loss.
The seminar, which will feature recognized HRT expert and local physician Dr. William Lee of The Lee Clinic, will discuss the underlying cause of these symptoms, as well as treatment options.
Topics will include: Types and role of hormones before, during and after menopause, impact of hormone loss, benefits of hormone replacement, bio-identical vs. synthetic hormone therapies, other hormone related conditions, including thyroid disorders.

Refreshments will be served.

Virginia's Youth Conservation Corps program accepting crew applications

Applications are being accepted through April 15 for two three-week summer sessions of the award-winning Virginia State Parks Youth Conservation Corps (YCC). The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation will notify selected participants via e-mail by May 1.

The program will be held June 21 to July 11 and July 19 to Aug. 8.

Teams of eight to 10 participants will be chosen from current high school students between the ages of 14 and 17 (participants must be 14 by June 1). Applicants must demonstrate an interest in protecting Virginia’s environment. While no prior experience is necessary, participants will work outside, and the service is physically demanding. A positive attitude, an interest in learning, curiosity about interpreting nature, and the physical ability and desire to work outdoors are also important factors in the selection process.

YCC crew members are provided room, board, T-shirts and equipment. They receive a $500 stipend at the end of the three weeks.

YCC participants help with assorted park projects, including wildlife and fisheries habitat improvement, trail and campground construction and restoration, timber and shoreline improvement, and landscape beautification. The YCC is modeled after the federal service program AmeriCorps and the depression era Civilian Conservation Corps that built the original six Virginia State Parks.

Workshop: Writing to Grieve the Loss of a Loved One

This workshop is being held at the Spiritual Care Support Ministry Center.
Taught by Donald Gallehr, GMU professor and published author. The lost of a loved one can be heartbreaking, and it is so important that we complete the grieving process from beginning to end. Writing about our relationship with our loved one is one of the most effective ways to grieve and leads us to the point where we are ready to move on with our lives. This workshop moves from selecting memories we want to write about into drafting, sharing, and revising - and for those who are interested - into publication.
