Stay Well classes.

Several of the public libraries in the East Bronx would like to offer free weekly Stay Well Exercise classes, designed for adults 60 and over.

To this end, they will be holding demonstration workshops with the goal of attracting people willing to be trained on-site as volunteers who will then commit to leading these classes on a regular basis.
Staff from the Health Promotion Services unit of NYC's Department for the Aging will be leading the workshops, which consist of a well-balanced series of exercises for all ability levels. No special clothing or equipment is necessary. Participants will be required to sign an activity release form.
Those interested in attending the free workshops can register by phone or in person at the library.

Geoffrey Gloak

may be one of the few people you meet who is always glad to talk taxes. He has spent 17 years immersed in government communications – almost entirely in the tax field. He currently serves as the Director of Public Relations at the New York State Tax Department. In each of Geoff’s positions, he has created opportunities to transform the communications environment for the benefit of the organization. Under his leadership, Tax Department public relations have shifted from a reactive focus to proactive outreach. Most recently, Geoff led the STAR Registration media campaign to assist 2 million homeowners with property tax relief while eliminating fraud. As a result of extensive press outreach, more than 300 articles were printed in daily papers alone, and broadcast media repeatedly covered the story in each corner of the state. Less than 5 months after launch, 2.3 million homeowners had registered for their property tax exemptions. Geoff (@gloak23) lives in Kinderhook with his journalist wife, Kristi Berner (@kristiberner), and 4-year-old daughter, Gemma, who is now proud to be able to write her name.
