Davie County Senior Services will re-open July 1. After more than 15 months of altered activities, things will finally start to feel normal again. To kick off the re-opening, those 55 and older are invited to a coffee and donut celebration July 1 at 9:00am. To reserve a spot, call Senior Services. Many favorite activities will return in July, with the schedule a little lighter than in the past. Staff will continue to build the schedule back up as it is shown that everything can be done safely. However there are many seminars, classes, activities, and parties to keep everyone busy. To see the latest newsletter with all the activities scheduled through September, visit Senior Services’ website www.daviecountync. gov/seniorservices, or call 336-753-6230 to be added to the mailing list. Hours for the main campus at the Bobby H. Knight building on Meroney Street, will be Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm. In addition to opening the main campus, Senior Services has announced the opening of its new Health & Fitness Center. This will be located at the Brock Gym at 644 North Main Street, Mocksville. All exercise classes and the fitness center will move to that location.

The larger area will allow room for more participants in the fitness classes. In addition, more equipment has been added to the fitness room. A full line of classes, including Yoga, Line Dancing, Zumba, Tai Chi, and Cheerleading will be offered. There are also a variety of classes in the evening for those 55 and older who are still working. In the gym, there will be walking hours each morning from 8:00 – 10:00am.

The additional space will allow Senior Services to expand health and fitness opportunities. Hours for the Health & Fitness Center will be Monday – Thursday, 8:00am – 8:00pm, and Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm. The phone number will be the same as the main campus, 336-753-6230.

A ribbon cutting and open house for the new Health and Fitness Center will be held on July 1 at 1:00pm. The entire community is invited to see the new site. The fitness class instructors will be on site to talk to attendees about their upcoming classes. Brief remarks will be made by Kim Shuskey, Aging & Adult Services Director, David Bone, Davie County Manager, and Rick Cross, Senior Services Advisory Chair.

In addition to all the fun activities and events, the on-site lunch program will also resume July 1. Anyone in the county 60 and older is invited to attend lunch. You will need to fill out a brief form, and reserve your meal no later than noon the day before you wish to attend. Lunch will be served each day, Monday – Friday at 11:00am. A program will occur each day at 10:00am.
