EXERCISE
     There is a fun group of seniors meeting for Exercise classes every Tuesday and Thursday morning at the Lakeville Town Grove Recreational Building from 10:00am to 11:00am.

     The easy and light exercises, led by Diane Magnuson, are geared for those with arthritis and most are done while sitting in a chair. The exercises include stretches using a Theraband, a thin, rubber band which provides resistance. The class is beneficial both physically and socially. After the class, many remain for coffee and conversation. Lunch is also available at noon for those who make a reservation a day ahead.

     There is no charge and all area residents are encouraged to attend for fitness, fun and fellowship. For more information call Diane Magnuson or Mike Beck at 860-435-5191.
