"Laugh for the Health of It:  Creating Healthy Lifestyles through Laughter"

(Rescheduled from a previous date) Laugh the stress of life away at the Lyme Disease Resource Center, where Trevor Smith from Blue Sky Consulting will present a program called: 

"Laugh for the Health of It: Creating Healthy Lifestyles through Laughter."


Participants will learn a systematic method of chuckles, chortles, giggling and guffawing that promises to help reduce stress, prevent hardening of the attitudes and contribute to world peace. The laughter routine, designed to make anyone feel better, works without using jokes or comedy to stimulate the laughter.

Central Mass Lyme Foundation

"...is a non-profit organization created to help those battling Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne illnesses. Ken and Michele Miller started the organization in memory of Michele's Mom, Jeanne Cloutier, who passed away in February, 2013 as a result of late-stage Lyme Disease. Michele and Ken witnessed first-hand the devastating effects of the disease and recognized that something had to be done. Their foundation was created to help raise awareness and educate people about the disease, teach prevention and provide support to the local community."
