Monday, Nov. 25 – Women can enjoy some rounds of 8-ball pool every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings 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 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, also. 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 jig-saw puzzle solving.
Tuesday, Nov. 26 – Get ready for the holidays now by getting a good workout with the free exercise class, called Sit ‘n Be Fit that is offered every Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. The exercises are low impact, and good for strength and flexibility. Some are done while sitting and others are done by standing next to your chair utilizing hand weights, stretch bands, and bouncing balls during the 45 minute workout. Afterwards, stay and practice some boot scootin’ line dancing. This will get you a really good workout! In the afternoon, games include; canasta, duplicate bridge, dominoes, pitch, pool/snooker and jig-saw puzzle solving. Please note: the Veteran’s Affairs representative will no longer be coming to the Senior Center. He will now be at Workforce Oklahoma’s Stillwater office at 3006 E. 6th St., from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesdays only.
Wednesday, Nov. 27 – The women will be at it again at the pool tables, practicing their pool shots.
