98 Years Young and Still Going
Marian Chindvall is 98 years young, living independently in her home and volunteering every week at her church. What’s her secret? She is active in the community and, for the past 12 years, has participated in the RSVP Bone Builders Exercise Program at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
Bone Builders is a free exercise program that uses light weights to build muscle strength and bone density. Marian attends the 1 hour class a minimum of twice a week to stay in shape. Because she keeps her body active, she remains independent and is able to continue to do those things that are important to her - such as volunteering at her church.
When asked, “What keeps you going to Bone Builders?” Marian replied, “It keeps you on your toes. There’s friendship and fellowship. You’re motivated by the group to exercise.” That’s why you’ll often find this Bone Builders group having coffee and donuts at the Pine River Bakery after class. Many people in the group have been going for 5-10 years, because of the community of friendship they’ve built. Marian is a true inspiration to her fellow Bone Builders participants and the other 23 Bone Builders sites throughout Beltrami, Cass Lake of the Woods and Morrison Counties served by Horizon Health RSVP.

Hospice "Lights of Hope"
Horizon Health Hospice is honored to have The Pierz Lions Club once again partner with them for their annual “Hospice Lights of Hope”. The Tree sparkles with the light of special individuals in our lives, both past and present, while also raising funds for Horizon Health Hospice services. The “Lights of Hope” contribution allows Horizon Health Hospice to continue providing end of life care for people in our community and support for their families throughout the year. With every 100 lights purchased, another string will be lit on the tree. Lights can be purchased in Pierz at F & M State Bank, Hartmann’s Hardware Hank, Unity Bank and Horizon Health. The “Lights of Hope” tree, donated by JB Tree Farm of Pierz, is located in Billig Park on South Main Street in Pierz. If you are interested in donating, you can contact Vicki at 320-468-6451 or at .
