Senior Center Watch 12-01-13

The city of Stillwater Senior Activity Center, 1015 E. 12th Ave., plans to get out the Christmas tree and decorations. Seniors can help decorate starting at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Call 405-747-8080 for more information. Stop by to pick up a December calendar of events. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6-8:30 p.m. Thursday. Remember with the weather changes coming, if the Stillwater Public Schools are closed then the Stillwater Senior Activity Center will also be closed.

Champions for various games held last week were social bridge winners Norma Burk, first, and Penny Sizemore, second. Duplicate bridge winning partners were Lionel Raff and Al Perry, first, and Murna Raff and Jane Anderson, second. The Texas Hold’em champion for the week was Chestine Crane. Frank Berry won the men’s pool tournament.

Each day, afternoon games include bridge, canasta, dominoes, Texas Hold’em, pitch, pingpong and pool/snooker. A puzzle is always out waiting for someone to find a missing piece. The center also has an exercise room with exercise bikes, weight set and Wii interactive games.

Weekly highlights include:

Monday: After the Thanksgiving holiday, the women pool players were anxious to get back to their eight-ball games. They enjoy several rounds of eight-ball pool every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings starting at 9:30 a.m. The women have a great time and share a lot of laughs together. Also, an artist’s group comes in at the same time. They bring in 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.

Tuesday: First thing Tuesday morning, the free exercise class, Sit ‘n Be Fit, gets underway. This class is offered at 9:30 a.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. The exercises are low impact and good for strength and flexibility. Some moves are completed while sitting and others are executed by standing next to a chair utilizing hand weights, stretch bands, and bouncing balls during the 45 minute workout. Afterward, stay and practice some boot scootin’ line dancing. This will give a really good workout. At 10:30 a.m., come deck the halls as all volunteers are welcome to transform the center for the holidays.

 The Veteran’s Affairs representative is no longer coming to the center. He is available at Workforce Oklahoma’s Stillwater office, a 3006 E. 6th St., from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays only.

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. The historical dramatic movie, “Mrs. Brown” will be shown at 2 p.m.

Thursday: Work off those Thanksgiving 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. They really get to moving and can work up a sweat while having fun. At 2 p.m. a wild game of bingo takes place. Everyone is a winner. Don’t miss out on the fun!

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.
