Redwood City Senior Center Sponsors Free Lecture on How to Make Your Holidays Bright

Redwood City, CA - November 18, 2003 - The upcoming holidays bring thoughts of family, fun, and celebration. For many, the holidays can also carry a great deal of stress. To help catch that stress before it happens, the Veterans Memorial Senior Center presents a free holiday lecture, "Make Your Holidays Bright." The program will take place on Wednesday, December 3, 2003, at 10:30 am in the Goldstar Room and is open to the public. The Senior Center is located at 1455 Madison Avenue in Redwood City.

"Make Your Holidays Bright" is being presented by Patricia Wiklund, Ph.D., author, speaker, consultant, and executive coach. She believes that taking charge when you're not in control is the best way to confront those issues and challenges we all face. She is a popular guest on such shows as Oprah, Leeza, Maury Povich, and Phil Donahue, and has been a commentator on hundreds of local television and radio shows. The program will include tips to make sure your holidays are as bright and fun as you want them to be, along with tips, strategies, and ideas you can easily and inexpensively implement to ensure a memorable and fun holiday season. The discussion will also include a few ideas to dispel holiday blues and stress before they rear their ugly heads.
