Seniors are invited to participate in a free membership Monday, July 6 through Friday, July 10 at the Duneland Family YMCA. If you're at least 65 years young, it's a great time to join your friends and learn what they find so special about gathering several times a week at the Y. You'll have full use of all the Y facilities to take classes, swim, use the equipment and weights. Enjoy classes, join in on Movie Monday and Bingo Friday. There are exercise classes daily geared specifically for active older adults like Building Fit Friends, Silver Sneakers Classic and Silver Sneakers Cardio. Silver Sneakers Splash in the pool is also available. Come give it a try; we know you'll love it!
Older adults are a significant and growing segment of our communities. Seniors who participate in activities and classes at the places like the Y often experience a strong sense of belonging and develop a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through on-going, fun, safe, and engaging programs, activities, and events older adult members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of each older adult within their senior community.
Senior citizen's supplemental insurance may cover an annual membership at the Duneland Y at no cost. Stop by the Y and meet with Emily Hoge to see if you qualify, or give her a call at 926-4204. The Y is located at 215 Roosevelt St., in Chesterton. The Duneland Family YMCA is a charitable nonprofit and a United Way of Porter County Partner Agency.
