FRIENDS OF THE BAY COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARIES FUNDRAISER AT KALEIDOSCOPE THEATRE

Event Dates and Times

1/12/2017 - Starts: 7:30 PM
207 E. 24th Street, Lynn Haven
The Friends of the Bay County Public Libraries is holding their 3rd annual fundraiser at Kaleidoscope Theatre (207 E. 24th Street, Lynn Haven) on January 12th for a performance of Neil Simon’s classic Rumors. The Annual Membership Meeting of the Friends of the Bay County Public Libraries will take place in the 6:30 p.m. in the Kaleidoscope Theatre lobby. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used by the Friends to support materials and programming in the Bay County Libraries. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $20 at the Bay County Public Library, Panama City Beach Public Library, Parker Public Library, and Springfield Public Library. Tickets will be available at the door for $25. Cash or check may be accepted. Checks should be made payable to: Friends of the Bay County Public Libraries. The cast from the show’s regular run at the Kaleidoscope Theatre has generously donated their time and talent to this performance.

Rumors is set at a large, tastefully appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, where the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Panama City
The Florida Department of Health in Bay County’s Healthy Bay division will be offering four new Diabetes Prevention Program, DPP, classes in the beginning of 2017. Classes will be at different times, days, and locations to allow more people to participate. DPP is a yearlong lifestyle change program. An independent review of DOH-Bay’s program found that participants achieved weight and physical activity goals. DOH-Bay’s DPP is pending CDC accreditation.
DPP reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 58%. The goal of the program is for participants to lose seven-percent of their body weight and exercise for 150 minutes per week. There are 16 weekly core courses and six monthly follow-up sessions. Participants learn strategies for incorporating physical activity into daily life and eating healthy.
Risks for prediabetes include:
ü Having a baby weighing more than 9 pounds at birth.
ü Family history of diabetes.
ü Being overweight or obese.
ü Physical inactivity.

2017 Class schedule:
Mondays 11:30 a.m.—12:30 p.m.
Florida Department of Health in Bay County, 597 W 11th ST, Panama City
First class: January 9 (must register and attend no later than January 30 class)

Tuesdays 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Health Plex Health and Rehab, 2935 Hwy. 77, Panama City

In addition to the class schedule above, DOH-Bay works with organizations in order to provide classes for their employees. An employee with diabetes costs $13,700, 2.3 times higher than an employee without diabetes. The return on investment is $55,000 over 10 years when DPP educated employees prevent their progression to Type 2 diabetes.
DOH-Bay also offers evidence-based educational programs to help those living with diabetes manage their disease. An independent review of the program by the Ounce of Prevention found the program to be successful with reduction in A1C scores of over one third of a point during the review period. The program is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Class offerings include:
· Diabetes Self-Management Education
· Medical Nutrition Therapy
· Insulin Pump Management
· Gestational Diabetes Consultation and Support
· Living Well Program
· Type 2 Diabetes Support Group

You can sign-up in advance for the DPP class or just show up for class no later than the fourth session. For more information about any of these programs, please visit bay.floridahealth.gov, call us at 850-872-4455 or email CHD03Diabetes@FLHealth.gov.
