• Ready to get in shape? Perhaps fulfill your New Year’s resolution: An exercise group meets at 9:30 a.m. every Tuesday and Friday in the McLouth Community Center behind the library. There is no fee. All levels of physical fitness are welcome to participate in this one-hour session of walking and moderate exercise (It’s perfectly acceptable to take a “rest” whenever necessary). This is good therapy for cabin fever.
