Milan's Healthy Summer

Our library is partnering with Aid in Milan, Milan Seniors for Healthy Living, and Moving Milan for Milan's Healthy Summer.  

Milan's Healthy Summer is an intergenerational program that fosters a sense of community and belonging while focusing on improving the health and well-being of our neighbors. 

The program will focus on children (accompanied by a parent/adult) and seniors - the populations most isolated during COVID - and also invites people of any age with cognitive impairments to participate.

Anyone can attend regardless of age, but the prizes and activities are geared towards the above-mentioned groups.

The program will include weekly events focusing on healthy bodies, healthy minds, and healthy communities. 

All events are free thanks to the generosity of our community partners, local businesses, and the Speckard-Knight Charitable Foundation.
