Senior Center Happenings – 1/15/16


It’s important to exercise at any age and now is the time to start the New Year off on the right foot! We offer an exercise class which includes a combination of strength training, cardio, flexibility and balance. You do not have to be a senior to attend. All ages are welcome. The 1 hour class is held in the gymnasium on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00. You may start at any time, prior registration is not required. The cost is only $2.00 per class. We look forward to seeing you and helping you to stay healthy for many years to come!

Read’em, Keep’em or Bring’em Back!

At the Senior Center Library, there’s a whole new selection of gently used books, brought to you for your reading pleasure by the Friends of The Woodbridge Library. Many more books are available for VERY reasonable prices at the new Friends Bookstore Alley, located on the mezzanine level and open during all Woodbridge Town Library hours.

Friendly Visitors Needed

Do you have some extra time and would like to volunteer? We are looking for some Friendly Visitors to visit or telephone people in our community who are isolated and shut-in. Your visits are a gift that makes a world of difference to someone who is alone and would appreciate some company. Please contact Mary Lee Raro at the Human Services Department 203-389-3429. Orientation and training workshop will be scheduled soon for new recruits.
