At The ClubHouse
Every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, the ClubHouse offers a "Quiet Time" Program for members who prefer a more tranquil atmosphere than what the morning ClubHouse hours offer. The hours of this program are from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Mental Illness Outreach Specialist Cindy Mitchell heads up the "Quiet Time" Program for the ClubHouse. Participation in this afternoon program is by referral only. Past activities for the program include movies, bowling, nature hikes, fishing, picnics, miniature golf, going for rides, crafts, "make a meal" sessions and relaxation, stress, and fitness sessions. Future activities are the Clay County Fair, Fort Dodge Apple Orchard and continuing the activities we have done in the past.
