Tuesday, November 20:

Chair Aerobics: Robin Lewis, our IFA certified instructor, will help you tone, strengthen, improve your balance and put a smile on your face with mostly seated exercise. This workout is great for seniors or if you are recovering from an injury. All you need are comfortable clothes and a dishtowel. Yes, of course this class is for men, too! Class starts at 10:30 a.m. at the Community Center. $5.

Lunch Bunch: It is, as usual, at the Community Center, at 12:30 p.m.. It won’t be turkey, cranberry and mashed potatoes, but it promises to be delish! $4.
