Ladies Day at the Granary Saturday

Farm Forum

Women can explore the health of mind, body and spirit Saturday (June 29) at “Pampered on the Prairie” at the Granary Rural Cultural Center.

This event, which was also last year, is part of the Dacotah Prairie Museum’s Granary outreach summer programming. The theme is “Mind, Body and Spirit — A More Beautiful, Healthier You!” Planners hope to provide a day full of activities to relax and regenerate attendees.

The activities run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.

Michala Heller of Aberdeen will provide the keynote speech, followed by Beth Coates, an Avera St. Luke’s wellness instructor, who will discuss using spice as a healthier alternative to salt in our diets.

Dana Althoff of Parkview Nursery will show how to grow your own salads for healthier results. Staff members from the Aberdeen Family Y will lead the group in zumba exercises and stress the importance of movement to a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Stewart Quam from Vision Care Associates will discuss eye health and present tips on choosing eyewear for your facial features.

The day will conclude with a tour of the outdoor sculpture garden with Lora Schaunaman, curator of exhibits at the Dacotah Prairie Museum, who will share the stories of the existing sculptures and plans for future development of the area.

Pre-registration is required. The cost is $25, which includes lunch. Tickets may be purchased at the Dacotah Prairie Museum, 21 S. Main St., or by calling the museum at 605-626-7117.
