Active elders



Dear Viewpoint:

Active Older Adults is a YMCA program that recognizes people 55 years of age and older, offering programs that promote healthy body, mind and spirit.

May 20, 2009 the YMCA South Boston/Halifax County held its 12th Annual Active Older Adults Day.

This year’s event was made possible by a grant from McNeil Consumer Healthcare, makers of TYLENOL® Arthritis Pain. “May is TYLENOL® Keep Moving Month.”

Events included Cholesterol- Blood Glucose Screening by Halifax Regional Health System, Flexibility Screening by Halifax Regional Health System’s Cox Rehabilitation Center and HomMed Telemonitoring screening, (blood pressure, weight, heart rate, & 02 SAT’s) by Commonwealth Home Health. Some of the other activities were a covered dish lunch, “white elephant bingo”, door prizes and an open house at the YMCA.

Special thanks go out to all the volunteers who gave of their time, to make the day a success.

The following gave generously to support YMCA Active Older Adults:

Halifax Regional Health Systems, Jeffress Funeral Home, True Value Hardware, Rosana Humphreys.

The YMCA applauds the volunteers and community support that allows the YMCA to put Christian principles into practice though programs that build healthy body, mind, and spirit for all.

Sincerely,

Suzanne E. Wallace

YMCA South Boston/Halifax County, Associate
