299 Elm Street, Enfield,
News Release for the Week
December 12, 2016
If you have walked through the Great Room of
the Senior Center, you may have noticed that it does not look over 13 years
old. Our Town Building and Grounds Division of Public Works repaired and
painted the walls and columns. It looks brand new. New carpeting is on the way
in January. This well-used building will have a nice new look.
As I write this, snowflakes are falling. It
reminds me to get the word out about our weather closings. If the Enfield
Public Schools are closed because of inclement weather, the Senior Center
programs are canceled. If there is a school delay, our schedule goes on as
usual. The building remains open, in most cases, for drop-in activities
including the Prime Fitness Center. Notification of cancellation is posted on
WFSB, Twitter and Facebook. Always feel free to give us a call to check the
Registration for our January-February class
session begins with resident registration on Tuesday, December 13 at 8:30 a.m.
Non-residents may register one week later.
A new fitness class is starting in January on
Thursdays from 1 – 1:45 p.m. beginning January 12 for 7 classes. Body 360 is for men and women who would
like to incorporate stretching, flexibility and balance into one class. Tight
muscles contribute to back pain or difficulty performing everyday tasks. Poor
balance increases your risk for falls. If you have been inactive due to an
injury, are recovering from surgery, or are active and want to stay active, you
will want to take this class. The exercises will be standing, in chairs and
some mat work. The cost is $21 for residents and $28 for non-residents.
The Enfield Senior Center shows TED Talks on the third Thursday of the
month. This month the TED Talk is Jane Fonda talking about “Life’s Third Act”
on Thursday, December 15 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. After the TED Talk,
participants discuss their thoughts. There is no fee, and past participants
have found it a thought-provoking activity.
Therapy is the therapy nobody knows about, but everyone should. Come and learn
more about Occupational Therapy with Andrea Cordis from Bay Path University.
Andrea will present OT 101 on
Tuesday, December 13 from 9 to 10 a.m.
If you are new to the Senior Center, you may
want to take advantage of our monthly Welcome
to Enfield Senior Center tour and talk. Meet in the Senior Center library
on Tuesday, December 13 at 10 a.m. to have all of your questions answered.
Evergreen Health Care Center is offering individualized balance screenings on
