    In May, we have a wonderful hike with Groton Utilities arranged for Friday, May 14th.

    On Thursday, June 24th we shall hike approx. 1.2 miles on the Kolnaski trail in the afternoon.

    We also will begin our kayaking program again at the end of June! Interested?

    A perk of the pandemic has been more wonderful hiking and kayaking participation with our fabulous OATS group. Most recently, we celebrated spring with a wonderful hike at Copp Family Park on the yellow  trail.
    Thank you to all who have participated!

    Benefits of Recreation

    Recreation is for all ages! For older adults, Recreation prolongs independent living helping you stay physically active and involved in community life.  Regular fitness activities can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, combat osteoporosis and diabetes and ease arthritis pain.  Regular activity can also support your mental health, relieve the feeling of fatigue, restore our energy and promote a sense of joy.

     

    We are still wearing masks!

    Can you believe it’s been 14 months that we’ve been wearing masks? I know we are getting mask weary and are ready for them to come off. Gov. Lamont has given businesses the option of allowing no masks or continuing to have mask wearing indoors.

    For the safety of the staff and the safety of all our customers that masks will still be required. You’ll need to continue to wear your mask over your nose and mouth for a bit longer while coming to the center.  The center is still a place that is for the most vulnerable population to Covid 19.

    We will discontinue wearing masks in the center beginning July 1 as long as we continue to see the decline in Covid cases in our community.

    I ask that you be kind and respect the decision to keep everyone that participates here safe. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter and we all look forward to the day when we can get back to whatever our “normal” will be.
