Georgetown senior activities

(Continued)

Drivers needed for elder medical transportation: The Georgetown Council on Aging is seeking additional volunteer drivers to provide medical transportation to local elders. Through Northern Essex Elder Transport, Inc. (N.E.E.T.), the COA provides local elders with rides to medical appointments. Staffed by volunteer drivers, a donation of 43 cents per mile is suggested to help support the program and defray the increased cost of gasoline for volunteer drivers. For information on becoming a volunteer driver, call the COA office.

Morning card games and cribbage under way: Drop in for a card game or cribbage game Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9-10:30 a.m., at the First Congregational Church. Coffee and snacks are served along with plenty of good fun. Make a day of it and stay for lunch.

Weekly COA exercise programs under way: In partnership with the Georgetown Housing Authority, the Georgetown COA offers weekly exercise programs at Trestle Way Community Room. Yoga classes are held at Mondays at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Strength Training classes are held at Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 10:45 a.m. A donation of $3 is suggested per class.
