CULTURAL ARTS

Program: Speaker Series – Fall 2020

Historically, the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove has invited prominent members of our community to speak to our Club membership and guests at the conclusion of its monthly meeting luncheon, typically held on the first Thursday of each month. For obvious reasons, WCCG will not be having in-person gatherings, meetings or buffet luncheons for the foreseeable future.

In an effort to provide its members with a sense of consistency and connectedness, while also encouraging online networking, the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove, with the generous help of Club member and local filmmaker Travis Neff, will be pre-recording speakers’ presentations, using the Club’s interior stage, new theater lighting, and the Main Hall. These videos will be “aired” from the Club at 1PM on the first Thursday each month and can be seen on FaceBook Live at that time.

Club member Yvette Bravo helped Travis reconnect with the speakers who were on the Club’s meeting calendar prior to the Club’s mid-March shutdown due to the COVD-19 pandemic.

Here is the WCCG Upcoming Speaker Series Line-up:

JAN 7, 2021 @ 1PM – Dr. JoNell Efantis Potter
moderates three speakers to discuss Human Trafficking in South Florida

Bill Boland

Bill Boland is an exercise physiologist with over 25 years of experience treating chronic and traumatic pain, balance and neurological issues in men and women, young and old in New York City and Miami. In addition, he provides pre and post-surgery and injury rehabilitation treatments. Working From Home is a short presentation and demonstration Bill has created to provide us with easy, everyday solutions to counteract the excessive sitting we do each day. He offers more than a few professional tips along the way — suggestions that all of us can use to get moving and live pain free. For more information, visit www.bodyfixmethod.com.

Spending all day, every day, in a sitting position gives us rounded backs, forward heads, and twisted spines. This short presentation shows us that we need to pay more attention to our bodies, stand more, and sit less.
