The exercises emphasize continuous flowing movements that unite the body, breath and mind. There is a focus on specific movements from the Simplified 24 Tai Chi form.

Benefits include increased flexibility, leg strength and balance, as well as the effects of meditation such as a reduction in stress and anxiety.

Change in Monthly CPR Classes as of September

Our monthly CPR class is undergoing some exciting changes.

As of September we are moving to what is called a “blended learning” CPR class. This means students must spend two hours on their computers on an-online class before coming in to class for what will now only be two hours, instead of all day and the course will be offered twice on the third Saturday of each month instead of just once.

Urgent:

Remember: THIS CLASS REQUIRES 2 HOUR ONLINE COURSE BEFORE ATTENDING THIS CLASS. To access online course go to this link: http://redcrosslearning.com/course/301040f0-c611-11e6-981d-bb8e5751112f

YOU MUST BRING PROOF OF COMPLETION OF THIS ONLINE COURSE TO THE CLASS.

Pre-registration and completing the on-line course in advance of attendance are both required.

Have you been on the job hunt but are finding that you aren’t getting a call back for an interview?

Eureka Parks & Recreation and the Betty Chinn Day Center are committed to empowering the members of our community and providing them with the tools to set them up for success.  Which is why they have partnered to create Pathway to Payday—a unique and innovative workshop that will only teach you how to FREE!best sell yourself on your application & how to best be prepared for an interview.

What makes this workshop unique, is that participants will get the opportunity to immediately put these skills to the test with on-site interviews with real employers looking to hire.

Representatives from the following organizations will be there:

  • St. Joseph Hospital
  • Farmers Insurance
  • Rita’s Margaritas & Mexican Grill
  • Sun Valley, Pierson’s
  • Express Employment Professionals
  • Wing Inflatables
  • North Coast Cleaning Services
  • Eureka Parks & Recreation

Workshop participants are not guaranteed a job, but they are guaranteed this great opportunity. Last year, nearly 90% of workshop attendees left with a job.

There will be free on-site childcare available, lunch, as well as interview attire if needed.

This free workshop series will take place over four sessions at the Betty Kwan Chinn Day Center at 133 7th Street in Eureka. Sessions take place Wednesday, April 26th, Friday April 28th, and Wednesday May 3rd, and Friday May 5th from 10am-1pm.
