‘Summer’s Here and the Time Is Right for Dancing in the Street’
By Skip Corley
NAPS Capitol-Atlantic Area Vice President
They’re dancing down in New Orleans.” Good old New Orleans, the grand city of music, good eats, plenty of fun and where our NAPS 68th National Conventions will take place this August.
Now, you’ll want to enjoy all the good eating, shopping and fun things happening. But, hold on. You do know that, for most of the past year, you’ve been confined to your house. Before we get too excited about our trip to New Orleans, we have to prepare ourselves by getting our bodies ready.
Let’s think about doing some exercising—nothing really strenuous. There are some easy exercises we can do in the comfort of our homes. I dusted off a treadmill we had put in the storage room.

We also must remember COVID-19 still is very real. The numbers are trending in the right direction, but let’s not get too comfortable and not take precautions. The three Ws can make a big difference: Wear a mask, wash your hands and watch your distance.
I’m hoping to see all of you in New Orleans. Stay safe.
