[ARCHIVED] Enfield Senior Center Weekly Column - December 19, 2016

Enfield Senior Center

299 Elm Street, Enfield, CT  06082



News Release for the Week December 19, 2016





If you are a PRIME Fitness member, you know that we have a new Fitness Assistant. Enfield resident, Alaina Watson, completed her B.S. degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Dance from Central Connecticut State University. She is a Certified Exercise Physiologist and completed her internship at the Hospital for Special Care Fitness Center doing Personal Training. Alaina has been designing programs and assisting members with their exercises. We are very fortunate to have Alaina. Please welcome her when you see her.


In addition to a new Fitness Assistant, we have brand new beautiful strength training equipment in the PRIME Fitness Center. This equipment was purchased with a bequest from long time member Don Taylor for the Enfield Senior Center. The Friends of the Enfield Senior Center also contributed funds to make this purchase possible. We will have a dedication at a later date. Don Taylor’s generous contribution will enable older adults in the Enfield community be healthier.


Sign up for a free Landscape Paint Party on Friday, January 6 at 11 a.m. Learn how to create a beautiful landscape using acrylic paint. All supplies will be provided by OBTA Care. Registration is required. Please call the Senior Center office to sign up.

Whether you are dancing on the dance floor or in your chair, you are going to love this dynamic band.
