Loving my local Senior Center!

I have been so happy to have joined my local Senior Center. They have so much to offer.

I just went on one of the many day trips to Baltimore MD for a two-hour cruise around the harbor.

I also completed a line dancing class and have attended many festivals and parties with great food and live music.

They have a fully equipped exercise room and many fitness classes to choose from. I will be joining the bowling group on Mondays and may teach a crafts class.

The best part is meeting new friends by participating in the activities.

I am also hoping to learn to play bridge.

I highly recommend checking out your local Senior Center. Most places have them listed in the recreation bulletins for the county you live in.

I love my local senior center too. We have a separate group called seniors in action which organizes trips and does different things to help the senior center.

The cost to join this group is $3 a year and they use that money to buy extra things the center needs.

I was on a bus trip with this group last week to Michigan to see Mackinac Island.

I take blood pressures there for a couple of hours once a month as a volunteer.

The activities I enjoy most are the craft classes and bingo. We have one craft class that does a different craft every month and one that is doing diamond art.

We have other extra things too. This month is an ice cream social and usually there is some kind of activity for each holiday.

There are all kinds of exercise classes and exercise equipment we can use on our own. They are doing a 10 week tai chai class that I didn't join because I was going to be gone for a week but I hope to join the next one.

I agree. Senior centers are wonderful.
