“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Moving our Club 55 Senior Center to RLAC was a ‘leap of faith’ and has been an amazing transformation for us and for the community, although they may not feel it as directly as we do. It is said that things happen for a reason and certainly proves true with the arrival of Diane Lunde from Fort HealthCare. Diane stopped in while Club 55 was still located at the Congregational Church and introduced herself as the Community Health Program Coordinator throughout Fort HealthCare’s service area. In our case specifically for the senior population. She shares information from the neighboring senior centers she visits and offers support from her contacts at the hospital. My long- felt belief that Lake Mills needs a community center for all ages was validated when I realized how many were looking for a gathering space for that very need, and an area hospital was providing a resource. We have taken the first step and know we are not alone on the staircase.

Rock Lake Activity Center (RLAC) participation has increased significantly since the many updates were done to improve the building both structurally and cosmetically. It has become the community centered gathering place with activities for many ages. Stop in, take a tour, and see for yourself.

You have another opportunity to learn how to properly use the fitness equipment at RLAC on Wednesday, March 4 at 2 p.m. When you sign into Club 55 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. you may use the many different pieces of fitness equipment available.
