Cooking Demonstration Tantalizes Guests
If you missed the Health & Fitness Department’s cooking class on March 20, get set for seconds as a follow-up class is being planned for May. Stay tuned to the Link for the date and time. During this first, resident-request class, SCSCAI Health & Fitness Director Pam Shields, assisted by Fitness Program Coordinator Jessie Miles and Fitness Instructor Doris Poders, led a demonstration of simple and healthy cooking tips. On the menu were items, including authentic Israeli hummus with carrots, celery and chips; chicken cacciatore; mashed cauliflower; poached salmon and no-bake chocolate, pistachio and tahini truffles. For the 24 residents in attendance, the afternoon proved to be a tasty experience filled with lots of note-taking and food tasting. Residents who joined the Health & Fitness Department staff to put on the event were Kit Parker and Mary Fairhurst.

Cardio Challenge Wants You!
Be sure to take the cardio challenge at Sun Shadows set for Tuesday and Thursday. If you can't make the demos, do what Sun City resident Greg Mordin, left, did, and go for a spin when it's convenient. Photos by Jeannette Carrillo/Link.
SCSCAI’s Health & Fitness Department invites residents to test out the new cardio equipment on display in the lobby of the Sun Shadows Community Center.
