The senior exercise group will resume on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at Wellness 24. It will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting at 10:30 a.m. and lasting approximately 20 minutes. The exercises are very low impact with some minor stretching. It’s a great opportunity to get out of the house, socialize, and get a little exercise. Most of the exercises are chair exercises. This will help with your balance and coordination. If you need transportation, please call the Senior Center at 304-478-2423.

If you have a question, she is in the Elkins office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
During July we will be doing Bingo on Tuesdays and Thursdays after lunch. You can play for approximately one hour for only a quarter per card. We hope you will come out and socialize and join the fun.

Because we could not get enough interest in the New York trip for Christmas, we have cancelled it. We are now taking names for a Christmas trip to Myrtle Beach November 30th through December 3rd. The cost is $550 per person based on double occupancy. The trip includes 3 nights at an ocean front hotel, 3 breakfasts, 3 wonderful dinners, and Christmas shows at the Alabama Theater and the Carolina Opry. There will be a 2 mile drive through with over 2 million lights. We will also have time at Broadway at the Beach and visit a living history farm where we will see what everyday life was like in the early 1900’s. The price includes all of the above with transportation, taxes, gratuities, and baggage handling. If interested, please call 304-478-2423 as soon as possible.
