The workshops will be conducted by Dr. Linda Solomon, a volunteer with the Foundation for Wellness Professionals, a nonprofit organization that promotes wellness and disease-prevention programs.

The first workshop will be about "Arthritis: Alternative Approaches to Preventing and Relieving Joint Disease."

The second workshop is titled "Pressure Point Therapy, Learn How to Relieve Pain Naturally."

The church is recommending a contribution of $10 for this combined workshop. However, if you cannot afford the $10, you are still invited to attend.

Lions Club

In memoriam:

Lion R. Paul Hoffman died at the age of 88 on Wednesday, Aug. 13, at Ravenwood Lutheran Village in Hagerstown. He was the former owner of Hoffman's Men's Wear in downtown Hagerstown and was a veteran of World War II.

Lion Paul was the longest- serving member of the club at the time of his passing, having been inducted in August 1942. He served as club secretary from 1958 to 1971.

Lion Paul was an active member of the club for more than half a century until he found it necessary to become a member-at-large due to declining health.

All Lions extend sympathy to Mary Virginia and the family, and share in their loss.
