Active Aging Week 2015 “Live Your Adventure”
We began the month of October by finishing off our Active Aging Week with no hurricane yet we did have quite the flooding of people through our doors for various programs. A huge thank you to all those who volunteered and donated to our successful Active Aging Week 2015. We learned so much and made a lot of new active friends!
The theme this year was “Live Your Adventure” and boy did we have people doing that! We had over two dozen people away on our extended trip to Rocking Horse Ranch. Our day trip to New York City was a delight for those who took in museums, shows and NYC sight seeing. Meanwhile, those of us who stayed here in Groton took in all that Ledge Light Fall Prevention Event had to offer. It was great to see so many agencies represented and reaching out to our community.
Our OATS Group excursion to Fields of Fire Adventure Park had to be postponed due to weather but we made it up the next week and WOW what fun we had! “I feel like a kid again” and “this is awesome!” were just a few the comments made by our adventurous participants. The group has us already planning a return trip in the Spring among several other active excursions.
Many of you also took advantage of the free class trial for many of our fitness classes increasing our class sizes quite a bit. We do hope you all feel that it was a worthwhile week for our awesomely active community of seniors. Next year, we hope to have even more to offer you here at Groton Senior Center. Thanks for being a part of our active family!
