Another year has come and gone, and with the New Year comes a new chance to find local activities in Vernon that the Vernon senior’s community can participate in. These activities should focus on new chances to:
- Be physically active
- Be mentally active
- Find new ways to socialize
Living in a senior retirement home in Vernon is not a reason to stop being physically active. Vernon Parks and recreation offers many opportunities to get out of the home and meet all three of the previously mentioned criteria. There are many fitness classes that can focus on strength and core workouts, and building and maintaining strength, balance and overall health. There are also classes specific to remaining mentally active, called “Minds in Motion”. This is just a small sampling of what is offered through the Parks and Recreation programs.
Halina Centre, formerly known as the Vernon Senior Citizens Recreational Society also offers a number of fun, active, and social activities for its members. These events include dances, fitness classes, art and crafts, concerts and other social gatherings.
Shubert Centre is another local Vernon offering for various activities for seniors living in Vernon. Shubert Centre offers a calendar highlighting upcoming events for the New Years, including activities such as Dancing, crafts, and birthday bashes.
Whatever you choose to participate in, just know that there are many options out there for the Vernon seniors community. Make this the New Year to become involved, and find new joy.
