Minnesota in the Vietnam War @ VINE Adult Community Center
Apr 2 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Thursday, April 2, 1-3 pm – Minnesota in the Vietnam War

  • Arn Kind from Historical Experiences, Presenter (pending grant receipt).

This multimedia presentation will use Powerpoint, video, music, drama, role-playing and living history experiences to provide an understanding of this turbulent time and make history come alive for us.  Arn Kind will describe the increasing commitment to the war of each of five American presidents, the rising antiwar protests at home and the eventual U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam, and the lingering tragic effects of a war that had never been declared. It is made possible in part by the people of Minnesota through a grant funded by an appropriation to the Minnesota Historical Society from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.  It is presented in partnership with the Blue Earth County Library.

  • This presentation is offered free of charge. Registration deadline is 3/31.

Aqua Zumba @ VINE Adult Community Center Pool
Apr 4 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

VINE is offering Aqua Zumba the 1st Saturday of the month in place of Water Exercise Level 2.

Perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine.

Aqua Zumba blends the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss!

There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.
