Mrs. Nancy Szikszay - Flint Community Players And Tara Moreno - Flint Serenity House

The Flint Community Players have been very generous to our speaker program by providing free gift certificates to their performances over several decades. Tom Nobles represented them so very well and came to our monthly programs to hand out the free tickets to our seniors. He was an outstanding man who enjoyed Friday’s at Applewood. Tom’s daughter, Mrs. Nancy Szikszay, has continued to see to it that our seniors are still receiving these gift certificates and she will speak about the Players and the role her parents (Tom & Bea) played in that great organization. ~ Tara Moreno, Founder and Executive Director of the Serenity House of Flint, saw a need for holistic medicine in the current recovery model, after she spent five years using conventional recovery methods, including therapists, doctors, and 12-step meetings. When Ms. Moreno found holistic medicine, her overall wellness skyrocketed. Once on a plethora of medication, she was able to stop the use altogether with nutrition, energy medicine (Reiki), acupuncture, meditation, breathing exercises, and yoga. As the use of prescription medications increases exponentially, the Serenity House of Flint’s mission is to inform the public on holistic ways to heal from addiction and other ailments.

Learn about what they do, what training is required to become a U.S. Marshall, and involvements that he thinks would be of interest to us. ~ There has been a barrage of gloom and doom associated with Global Warming, also known as Climate Change.

Eileen Button - The Waiting Place

We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. While we work hard at this business of living, life can sometimes feel like one very long, boring meeting. Even today, with instant gratification at our techno-laced fingertips, we cannot escape The Waiting Place. Somehow, in between our texting and tweeting, and living and dying we end up there again, and again. Eileen will discuss her new perspectives on The Waiting Place and will tell of the beauty and humor that she has found hiding in its dusty corners.
