Senior Center Watch 12-08-13

The city of Stillwater Senior Activity Center, 1015 E. 12th Ave., is getting ready for the holidays. Stop by to pick up a calendar of events. This month we’re celebrating December birthdays at noon Friday. Remember with the weather changes coming, if the Stillwater Public Schools are closed then the Senior Activity Center will also be closed. Regular operating hours are  9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6-8 p.m. Thursday for music night.

Champions for various games held last week were social bridge winners, Cindy Smith, first, and Patricia Logan, second. Duplicate bridge winning partners were Lionel Raff and Al Perry, first, and Seham El Sherif and Terry Miller, second. The Texas Hold’em champion for the week was Lula Mae Davis.

Highlights for events this week are:

Monday: Women pool players are enjoying several rounds of eight-ball pool every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting at 9:30 a.m. They have a great time and share a lot of laughs together. Also, an artist’s group comes in at the same time. They bring their own supplies and help each other with ideas and questions they might have about their artwork. Other crafters are welcome to bring their projects and join the group, too. The center has an exercise room with exercise bikes and a weight set for senior use. The afternoon crowd arrives around 12:30 p.m. to play games of bridge, canasta, dominoes, pool/snooker and jigsaw puzzle solving.

Tuesday: First thing Tuesday morning, the free exercise class, Sit ‘n Be Fit, gets under way. This class is offered every Tuesday and Thursday at 9:30 a.m. The exercises are low impact and good for strength and flexibility. Some movements are completed while sitting and others are executed by standing next to your chair utilizing hand weights, stretch bands, and bouncing balls during the 45-minute workout. Stay and practice some line dancing. In the afternoon, there are lots of games again.

Wednesday: Pool balls are spinning around the tables again as the women take up their pool sticks after the doors open at 9:30 a.m. There are also other options for exercise such as Wii interactive games, a game of pingpong or exercise equipment. Afternoon games begin around 1 p.m. A puzzle is always out waiting for someone to find a missing piece. The historical family movie, “The Watsons go to Birmingham,” will be shown at 2 p.m.

Thursday: Work off those calories with the free Sit ‘n Be Fit exercise class. The class will give you a good stretching of your muscles. If you would like some more exercise, stay after class and join the line dancing group that meets at 10:30 a.m. In the afternoon, get in a game of canasta, dominoes, pool or snooker. At 2 p.m. a game of bingo takes place. Everyone is a winner.

Friday: The center opens at 9:30 a.m. and the women pool players are waiting at the door ready to practice their pool shots.

The painting group is also there with their paints, brushes and canvases, eager to get creative and exchange ideas. Exercise equipment is available for use.

Games of canasta, Texas Hold’em, and pool/snooker begin in the afternoon.
