The popular gentle Pilates classes will continue to be held at the Chevy Chase United Methodist Church, 7001 Connecticut Avenue, on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30 AM, and on Friday afternoons from 2:30 to 3:30 PM. There will be a fee per 4-week session of each class, payable in advance at the first class of the session ($40 for members and parishioners and $48 for other participants). There will be no classes held during the week of November 17-23, due to the church’s annual Holiday Bazaar.

On September 12, the Brunch Bunch will get together at the Olympia Coffee Shoppe in the the Brookville Road shopping center from 10 to 11:30 AM. There’s plenty of free parking, so do stop by this informal gathering for coffee and conversation with your neighbors.

“No, You Did Not win the Lottery and Other Attempts to Separate You From Your Money” is the title of attorney Barbara Mulitz’s talk at the M&M on September 17th, from 2 to 4 PM at the Chevy Chase Village Hall. Ms. Mulitz, licensed to practice in Maryland and DC, will speak about a number of legal matters of particular relevance to seniors. Appointed by County Executive Ike Leggett, she currently serves as a Commissioner on the Montgomery County Commission on Aging.
