People Plus is offering a new strength training class on Wednesdays at noon, “Growing Stronger.” This class, with instructor Bea Blakemore, offers gentle strength-training using light weights and resistance bands to increase strength, flexibility, balance, and all-important bone density.

People Plus’ newest club, a Ukulele Club, will start on Tuesday, July 9, at 2:30 pm. The group will meet the second Tuesday of each month, hopefully increasing to twice-monthly in the fall. (If you can’t make July 9, the next one is Aug. 13.) 

Registration is now open for the 13th annual People Plus Senior Health Expo, in partnership with Spectrum Generations. The Expo will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2024 at the Brunswick Recreation Center in Brunswick from 9 am - 1 pm.

All the trips are open to the public! FMI stop by the Center for a flyer, see the online links below, or call Jill at 729-0757.

Music in April is the signature fundraiser for People Plus, and this year we are delighted to say that we smashed all previous records, raising over $93,500 for the event!

The 16th annual Brunswick Area Teen Center Scoop-a-thon fundraiser, held April 24, 2024 at Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick, raised $12,455 for the Teen Center – breaking the record for income and sponsorship! 

People Plus has created the Jordan Cardone-Ruwet scholarship to honor the former Brunswick Area Teen Center Coordinator who recently retired after 18 years of service and dedication to the Teen Center program. The award will provide funds of $500 annually for a graduating high school senior (who has been a member of the Teen Center), to be used for post-secondary education of their choice.

Bring your spinning wheel and join the new Fiber Spinning Club at People Plus on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month, 10 am – 12:00 pm! Spinning is about using a spinning wheel or spindle to transform fiber, usually wool, into yarn to be used for knitting, crocheting, or weaving. It is also about getting together with like-minded people to enjoy camaraderie.

Former People Plus staffer Frank Connors, trying to come up with “his” way to celebrate the 200th birthday of the Great State of Maine, decided it would be fun and informative to create a list of the 200 places and things that make Maine so “special.” His list debuted in our March 2020 People Plus Newspaper with this article.
