Laureate Mu hears of Wii workouts
CROWLEY - The program for the August 6 meeting of Laureate Mu chapter of Beta Sigma Phi was “Let’s get in Shape with Wii,” which was presented by Shirley Griffin, who also hosted the meeting at her Crowley home.
Griffin explained that in developing the Wii its creators wanted to make the product affordable so that people could buy it. They also wanted to create a product that would be family oriented. They wanted to give players a chance to be a part of the game which would be interactive and could be enjoyed by people of all ages.
Following the program on the history of the Nintendo Wii, Griffin demonstrated its use by playing the bowling, golf and tennis games. She then gave volunteers a chance to try their hands at the games.
Members brought bathroom tissue to be delivered to Miss Helen’s Soup Kitchen.
It was reported that the cultural outing to the Hilliard Museum in Lafayette to observe the current exhibits, “The New Art of the Loom” and “Contemporary Folk Art from the Permanent Collection,” on July 25 was enjoyed by all.
A donation was made to the Welcome House and delivered by Jean Hanks.
The hostess served cooling refreshments of trifle and iced tea to those present, including Glenda Atkinson, Jean Hanks, Connie Jaubert, Brenella Joubert, Elsie Rowell, Gloria Stutes and Nancy Tislow.
The September meeting will be held at the home of Connie Jaubert in Lafayette. Members will meet for lunch prior to the meeting.
