In early January Polly Munts Talen (AKA Paulette) offered a workout session for those of us who have been a tad sedentary during the pandemic or whose New Year’s resolutions include moving more. Polly led us through an age appropriate routine designed to help folks become more active and increase strength and stability while aging. It was such a popular hour of fitness, balance, strengthening, and stretching exercises that Polly is now offering it every Sunday '77 doesn't have another Virtually Verdant session scheduled.
On the evening of the winter solstice, three of our talented classmates – Suzi (Susan) Caplan (flute), Suki (Virginia Kleinhans) Flanagan (harp), and Chase Morrison (cello) treated us to some of their seasonal favorites and provided fascinating historical insights. All those who enjoyed this intimate and generous concert in the cozy comfort of their own homes agreed this was wonderful way to wrap up a very challenging year: gorgeous music performed in the virtual company of '77 classmates.
At holiday time we raised a glass with our class and cheered each other up in these final weeks of 2020 and toast to a better year ahead. Back by popular demand, Helen Kriz Marshall offered an entertaining and informative holiday mixology session. She walked us through two classic libations ideal for this season: Eggnog and West Indian Planter's Punch.
