The OWLs potluck will be on Wednesday, April 18, at noon in Fellowship Hall. During our exciting program, we will look into the rapidly developing future of virtual reality (VR) for seniors. The program will be presented by Kathy Helgerson from Simple Steps Technology. Kathy is well known in the area for her work improving the life of seniors through technology. Kathy will explain that thanks to VR, seniors no longer have to miss everyday experiences such as museums, concerts, tours and travel. Kathy will bring a VR headset to allow those who wish to experience VR. Research has also found VR is beneficial to those suffering from Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, depression, anxiety and boredom. Because of costs incurred to prepare the program, a free will offering will be taken for Kathy. We look forward to seeing everyone in April.
The OWLs are a group at First that welcomes anyone, First Lutheran members or not, who are 55+. For information or to ask questions, contact Brian Narveson.
