COLUMBIA CITY — The Whitley County Chapter AARP met July 2 at the Woodlands Senior Center. Vice President Martha Meier presided. She opened the meeting with the pledge to the flag followed by a prayer given by Phyllis Swick.
Celebrating a birthday this month is Joann Hinen.
The health report by Swick was a continuation from last month, "How to Age-Proof your Brain.”
The suggested ways to keep a brain young and healthy included:
• Spice up your food
• Find your purpose
• Get a social life
• Reduce your risks, e.g. high blood pressure
• Check for any vitamin deficiency
