Tai Chi Class

Tai chi is often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion." There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren't in top shape or the best of health.

Try out a Tai Chi Class at the Clearwater Community Center. Classes are Tuesday and Friday mornings at 8:45 am. Cost is a $4 a month suggested donation. First class is free! For more info contact 620-584-2332.

Volunteer Drivers Needed

Volunteers are the backbone of our lunch program. Not only do they deliver meals to homebound seniors in their local
communities, they also provide the seniors with companionship and a warm, friendly smile when they arrive at the door.
The Clearwater Community Center is
looking for volunteer drivers for our lunch program. We are looking for a driver on Mondays or to fill in when needed. If you have 45 mins to spare on one of these days and are
interested in helping out some Seniors in your community please contact

Check out Internet at the Clearwater Public Library

Topeka, KS, — Starting Tuesday, December 16, Clearwater Public Library will begin lending portable WiFi Hotspot devices to library patrons wishing to expand the library’s Internet access. Wifi Hotspot lending will be part of a pilot project initiated by the State Library of Kansas, in partnership with New York Public Library and the Knight Foundation. 
“Many Kansas residents rely on library Internet for job searching, homework help, and e-government so when the doors close, so does their connection,” said State Librarian Jo Budler. “Too many Kansas households do not have Internet access and this pilot project has the potential to provide 24/7 quality access to those limited to the library’s operating hours.” 
Patrons can check out Wifi Hotspot devices through November 2015 for a lending period of seven days by visiting Clearwater Public Library, located at 109 E. Ross St., Clearwater, KS, and open Tuesday through Saturday, check website for hours of operation at Borrowers are required to fill out a customer survey to help the State Library determine possibilities of expanding the program to more libraries. 
The State Library provides quality library services and resources through your local library, including downloadable ebooks (for adults and children), audiobooks, and online databases. To learn more visit
