News Release for the Week of June 29, 2015

We try very hard to keep class fees affordable at the Enfield Senior Center. Did you know that every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to noon, we offer a free Chair Exercise class? You do not have to register and you just drop in. There are very nice people in the class that will make you feel welcome. Through the Friends of the Enfield Senior Center, we recently purchased a new television to show the Chair Exercise DVDs. Take advantage of this free, no obligation fitness opportunity. Fitness is more fun in a group.

The Friends of the Enfield Senior Center, through your generosity, also purchased a new television and Apple TV for the Technology Café. There are many free computer training opportunities that we can share. We need a few willing volunteers to learn to select the training and turn it on and off. Volunteers will receive training in how to do this. If you have some spare time, we could really use your help. Just e-mail me at
