WILTON – Wiltona Women’s Club met at 12:30 p.m. Feb. 8 for a midwinter luncheon at the Wilton Congregational Church.

Eleven members and three guests attended to hear Sandy River of Farmington, licensed acupuncturist, speak.

She holds a master’s degree in acupuncture and herbal medicine. River graduated from the Tai Sophia Institute in Maryland and is licensed to practice in Maryland and Maine.

Using slides, she illustrated changes in the body that can cause pain, discomfort and limited mobility. Poor posture, injury and underlying conditions are some of the causes. Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease, was discussed.

Sara Adair Mulvey, a guest, has opened the Light and Lotus yoga parlor on Main Street. She has held yoga sessions at the Fitness Center in Farmington. Her hours in Wilton are from 10 to 11 a.m. Mondays. Helen Dyke won a free session as a door prize.

The luncheon, provided by all members, was served after the program. Emily White was hostess.

A business meeting was held following lunch. Plans were made for the March 8 meeting, which will be held at 2 p.m. at the Wilton Congregational Church. The Syncopations of Mt. Blue High School, with Carol Shumway at the piano, will provide entertainment. Hostesses will be Franka Bickford, Helen Colburn and Patty Joyce.
