Wilma’s Patio Food For Thought

Wilma’s Patio Food For Thought

Wilma’s Patio and The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity are teaming up of offer a delightful opportunity for adults on Tuesday evenings this fall with hands-on creative experimentation and home style dining.

Using our creativity is an exceptional cognitive exercise for our brains and the best defense against Alzheimer’s disease. When we combine creativity with using our hands while visually engaged, we use multiple areas of our brain all at once. Food for thought.
