Troy Township is honored to have the opportunity to conduct a flag folding demonstration by The Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery Memorial Squad. We welcome this opportunity to pay tribute to our veterans and educate both youths and adults about the history of the American flag, the meaning behind the colors in the flag, proper etiquette of the Stars and Stripes and the symbolism of the ceremonial 13 folds of the U.S. Flag.

This educational presentation takes between 45 – 60 minutes and will include a brief video about the history of the American flag, two United States veterans demonstrating the ceremonial folding and presentation of the flag, the sounding of “Taps” from a live bugler if available, the reading of the 13 folds, and a brief question and answer session.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls


Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling?  Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall?  If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.  Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends.  A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.

A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is an eight week course and is offered by a sponsorship from and a partnership between the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. Classes will be held at the Troy Township Community Center located at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood. The eight week course is scheduled to be held on September 15, 22, and 29; October 6, 13, and 20; and November 3 and 10. Each class will be 2 hours each, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.  The instructors are from the Troy Fire Protection District and Troy Township. This course is FREE to all Troy Township residents. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served.

Please call 815-744-1963 to register or for more information.
