Did you know, each of your feet contains 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 120 muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. These all work together to support the weight of your body, act as shock absorbers, keep you balanced, and push you forward with each stride. Foot care often underestimated is an important part of your overall health. The next foot care clinic offered at the Standard Senior’s center will be on Thursday, May 4. For more information please contact Donna at 403 644 3849.

And May the 4th be with you! Star Wars Day, May the 4, celebrates Star Wars that was created by George Lucas. It is observed by fans of the movies, and the observance of the holiday spread quickly through media and grassroots celebrations. The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you”. Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world have chosen to celebrate the holiday.
