Funeral Planning - Embalming, Cremation, Donating Body to Science?

Funeral Planning for those who don't plan to die. Regardless of medical advancements we still have a 100% mortality rate. What you need to know before you go. Traditional burial? Cremation? Body Donation? A space and opportunity to openly discuss end of life issues that you have always wondered about. Our funeral plans are often left in the hands of our spouse or children. Death does not have to throw the family into total chaos and turmoil. Organizing and planning for end of life can reduce stress, minimize family conflict, save money and create a meaningful, memorable goodbye. (1 session)

Learning Personal Defense for Seniors

Statistically, attacks on seniors occur infrequently. However, if you are one of those who have been a victim, statistics are irrelevant. Seniors who may be limited in physical abilities often feel helpless in a fight against an attacker determined to cause mayhem. Similarly, Dr. Tunnell's wife is one who suffers from MS, uses a cane and has free-arm limitations. With the goal of helping her protect herself, he studied and developed a simple personal defense program for seniors. In this program, you will benefit from his advanced education in psychology and 41 years of law enforcement experience in dealing with criminals. The focus will be on situational awareness and simple methods to keep you safe. (1 session)

Instructor: Dr. Dale Tunnell is an international authority in voice and language analysis, an author, keynote speaker, and subject matter expert in the examination of conversational hostility. He advocates that human beings are built with internal detectors designed to sense aggression and this capability can be refined through training. As a certified Defender instructor, he provides personal defense training to a wide array of clients including men, women, young adults, and those who may or may not have been a victim at one time in their lies. He asserts that with minimal training anyone can avoid being a victim.

Selecting and Using a Handgun for Self-Defense and/or Target Shooting

In this class, we have a "hands-on" examination of many popular models and styles of handguns, both revolvers and semi-automatics, to help you make informed decisions on what might be best for YOU if you are thinking of making a handgun purchase. This is a great way to fine tune your choices before you venture out to the store to make a purchase. You will learn what might work for you, and as important, what might not work for you.  We will review basic safety issues, and the fundamentals for proper safe handling and shooting, including loading and unloading, grip, stance, aiming, trigger control etc., all done in a safe controlled environment. Next comes the fun part! Using some of the models you have examined, we will load them with laser cartridges. This is a non firing (i.e. no bullet) 100% safe round of ammunition that "shoots" a laser pulse at electronic targets. By doing this you will quickly learn how to safely use the controls of several handguns, and can shoot them in a virtual real-world setting. Since you are "shooting" real handguns, the experience is the same as would be at live-fire range, except there is no noise or recoil to distract you from learning. Again, being that there is no projectile...no bullet...this is a 100% SAFE activity. (1 session)
