The Arthur & Gloria Muselman Wellness Pavilion is hosting their sixth annual Active Aging Week from Monday, September 18th to Friday, September 22nd. Active Aging Week promotes lifelong learning on a national scale by providing older adults with the opportunity to experience themed activities and exercise in a friendly and fun atmosphere.

 

All activities and events, themed “Wellness Goes West,” will be free for seniors ages 55+ and older. The week will kick off with a senior breakfast on Monday, September 18th. Throughout the week, seniors can expect to participate in events such as a food demonstration, exercise classes, water walking, yoga, a campfire, line dancing, and more.

 

Seniors will have the opportunity to participate in a Senior Challenge which includes completing 3 of 5 provided activities. Upon completion of the challenge, seniors will receive a Western-themed t-shirt.

 

All seniors who attend 10 or more events during Active Aging Week will be entered in a drawing to win a Fitbit. Those who attend fewer than 10 events will be entered to win a variety of door prizes.
