No Cost!

CaptionCall is a federally funded service for people whose hearing loss requires captioning for them to effectively use the phone.

FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund.

Since 2018, a “Bone Builders” group has been holding hour-long group exercise sessions twice a week at First Congregational Church, in the vestry.
 
FCC's volunteer leader, Deanna Knight, has been trained through the RSVP organization.  Participants learn and practice low-impact exercises that support and develop breathing, balance, finger and arm strength.  With a doctor’s permission, a participant can use small weights.  Some stretching exercises are done while seated.
 
Beyond the physical, there is a strong sense of community among the group members.  There’s good conversation and fellowship to be found!  Anyone 55 and older can become part of a local group. 

Interested in joining the FCC Group on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10-11am? 
Deanna Knight leads this wonderful group!  You can call her at 802-375-2668 for more information.
