JOHNSTOWN — The following is for the Shirley J. Luck Senior Center, 109 E. Main St.
The senior center invites anyone to join in any of the classes and activities going on everyday at the center. There is always coffee or tea available and those interested can pick up the Eavesdropper if they haven’t already read it on Facebook.
Over the past few months, the center has added some new activities including Mah Jongg, knit and crochet club, and pinochle with new members always being welcome.
The center has brought back yoga and chair yoga with Dori Daknis as the instructor, and anyone can take this gentle exercise and meditation once or twice a week. Anyone interested can find a hidden talent in trying out the art or chair caning classes. Anyone attending will often find a group playing pitch in the center dining room and they are always looking for new players especially each Monday at 1 p.m.
Anyone is welcome to try any of the classes with an associated cost at no charge to be sure it is what one is looking for.
The center is busy working with the 50 Plus Club on the spring bazaar to be held on April 11.
