Bisbee Library Promotes “Healthy Holidays”

To help encourage stress-free holidays, the Copper Queen Library will sponsor a
“Healthy Holidays” series of talks, films, and workshops throughout December.
Topics include relaxing with herbal teas, remembering the good spirits of
celebration, and receiving information to help simplify “Medicare Part D”

The series kicks off on December 5 at 6pm with “An Evening of Warming Teas”
by Denice Gaddie, a licensed acupuncturist trained at the Florida Institute of
Traditional Chinese Medicine in St. Petersburg, Florida, and a Bisbee resident

since 2004.

The following week, December 12, Laurie O. Lewis, longtime resident, retired

teacher, and consultant in educational law and medicine, presents “Season and
the Spirit,” an overview of different ways to celebrate the holidays and a
reminder of the old proverb, “When you go shopping for wisdom, visit every tent
in the bazaar!” Tastes and treats will enliven the evening’s event, which begins
at 6pm.

A special Saturday workshop by Ed Dayrit, Medicare Arizona’s State Health

Insurance Program Coordinator, will be held December 9 from 10:30am to 1:30pm,
both to provide information on best strategies for purchasing prescription drugs
and to offer individual assistance with “Medicare Part D” enrollment for those
considering a plan change in 2007.

Finally, the library’s “Monday Night ‘Did You Know?’... Documentary Film Series”

will round out “Healthy Holidays” programming by featuring two films focused
on health –- Andrew Weil’s Spontaneous Healing on December 11 and Deepak
Chopra’s Way of the Wizard on December 18. Both films will be screened at
5:30pm in the Meeting Room.
