The Lakes Area Senior Activity Center is proud to serve the seniors of the lakes area community both within our doors and through community events.
Here is an update on programs and events that are coming up in the next month for the senior center.
We look forward to seeing you or meeting you at these events. Stop at the center, 803 Kingwood Street, Brainerd, and find out the other programs, events and activities that we have going on. The coffee is always on and DeAnn or Paula would be glad to give you a tour of the center.
Interested in keeping your mobility or adding to your muscle strength? Come and join our Bone Builders class. This low-impact exercise class relies upon weight training to protect against fractures caused by osteoporosis. Helga is the instructor and she makes the class fun for everyone. The class is held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning at 11 a.m. The receptionists at the front desk will get you in the right direction to participate in the class. Just stop in and join the class, you'll be glad you did.
Looking for great deals on used items? The Senior Center annual Garage Sale will be held Sept. 5-6 beginning at 8 a.m. both days. The Great Room of the center will be filled with gently used items including small appliances, books (both hard and soft covered), puzzles, furniture, holiday decorations, kitchen items, craft items and more. The garage sale is open to everyone, so stop in and you'll find beautiful items at great prices.
Mark your calendars for Sept. 20. It is the date for the Ageless Expo. The Expo will be held at Forestview Middle School from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. At the Ageless Expo you will find exhibitors, entertainment groups and seminars all focused on seniors. The Expo began in 1999 and each year has had unique exhibitors, entertainers and speakers. New this year is information on a Senior Outreach program from the Better Business Bureau, performances by the Geritol Frolics and new food items available for purchase.
The sponsors of this event are committed to providing information to seniors of our community. Sponsors are the Brainerd Dispatch, KLKS Radio, Independent School District 181 Community Education and the Lakes Area Senior Activity Center.
DEANN BARRY is the Lakes Area Senior Activity Center director.
