This month, during Active Older Adults Month, the Rye YMCA is offering a full schedule of activities to inspire older adults to get motivated. The Y celebrates healthy aging, with a focus on nutrition and meal planning, physical activity, and social interaction. In addition, the Y is waiving the $100 Joiners fee for ages 62 and older through May 20.
“Today’s older adults want to be more active, engaged and in control of their health,” says Laura Tiedge, the Y’s Senior Director of Healthy Living. “The Rye Y can help them reach their goals.”
The following activities and programs are free of charge. Some are open to all; others are limited to Rye Y members. Questions? Contact Penny Cozza at 967-6363, ext. 20, or email@example.com.
