Refreshment Break in the Cumberland Valley


Summer has arrived in Cumberland Valley and I recently became quite aware of the warm temperature while out and about one afternoon. Generally when I determine my schedule and tasks for the day I don’t make changes. 

Well on this particular bright and sunny day I made a few stops in Camp Hill and I was running a bit ahead of schedule and was on my way to Harrisburg. I happened to be conveniently located near the Cornerstone Coffeehouse on Market Street which doesn’t happen often for me, so I decided to pop in to see what their “cool” beverage of the day might be. I have my favorite spots throughout Cumberland Valley and Cornerstone Coffeehouse is one of them. The staff is always warm, friendly and eager to take your order. What I really find appealing at Cornerstone Coffeehouse is that they offer a variety of health conscience food items and when you’re in a rush that’s a plus. Today though was all about a fun refreshing drink and I quickly chose one of the features “Vanilla Coconut Lime Frappe”. If you like Vanilla and Coconut you can’t go wrong. I was hoping to taste a little more lime, but I’ll save that for my next visit and I’ll kindly share that when ordering my next one.

National Senior Health & Fitness Day is Coming


We know physical fitness and leading an active lifestyle is important no matter your age. But for seniors it is especially vital for a happier and healthier life in those “golden years.” That’s why it is important to note that later this month on May 27, an estimated 100,000 older adults will participate in organized fitness activities and events across the US as part of the 22nd annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day®. This year’s theme is “If You Keep Moving…You’ll Keep Improving!" Its essential goal is to help keep older Americans healthy and fit. As a group, those 65+ are becoming one of the largest and most influential segments in the country. This is especially due to the nearly 43 million baby boomers^ that will top out around 78 million. Starting in 2011, an estimated 10,000 boomers a day are turning 65 years old! Through the miracles of modern medicine and technology, we are living far beyond retirement age. Therefore the need and desire to stay active, healthy and engaged is becoming more and more important for seniors every single day. For older adults living in the Cumberland Valley, it’s no different.
