Summer is here! With the warm temperatures and longer days come opportunities to get out of the house, get moving, get exercising, and get the heart pumping. Summer is the perfect time to start that exercise program you’ve been putting off, and the Stoneham Senior Center has the programs and activities to get you started. Check out our Exercise page to see our schedule of programs. From the weekly walking club to belly dancing, aerobics, Pilates, and Zumba, we’ve got just the thing to get your muscles moving, your heart rate up, your endorphins released and boost your brain chemistry.
Weekly exercise is endorsed by health care professionals to promote healthy living and in many cases, can assist in managing chronic conditions. Plus, it’s fun and you get to meet new people and make new friends!
Another way to get your heart pumping and your body moving is by gardening. Visit our Community Garden and spend some time planting and maintaining our beautiful open space. Call (781) 438-1157 or email us to get started today!
Take advantage of the programs here at the Senior Center to kick-start your healthier lifestyle. And above all, have a wonderful summer and a Happy 4th of July!
See you at the Center,
Thank you for visiting our web site! Here you will find information on the Senior Center services, programs, and activities, and a variety of resources available throughout our region that enable seniors to live vibrant, active and healthy lives. The Center is housed in a beautiful, historic building, but it is our community of people that make it a truly special place to be.
Join us for lunch, stop by for a game of cards, pool, Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue or Wii. Hone your dancing or singing talents. Meet new friends, and meet new acquaintances. Learn new skills or hobbies. Go out to museums, performances, special events, and meals with friends. Seek assistance with filing taxes, choosing the right insurance, or managing medical issues. Be driven in comfort to the doctors or to the grocery store. And if we don't have what you want, speak up! My door is always open for suggestions, comments, and questions from our seniors, and our community. We are here to serve you, and your input is essential to insure that we are doing just that. Send me an email under the"Contact Us" link, call or stop by to let me know what you think.
I do ask one favor of you. After you have visited and experienced what the Senior Center has to offer, talk us up! Tell your friends and neighbors about our activities and programs. Invite a friend to join you the next time you come. You are our best ambassador, recruiter, and public relations specialist!
