CLEARFIELD – As September is National Senior Center Month, managers at Centers for Active Living in Clearfield County want to let the public know who we are, what we do and what’s available to them. Since older Americans are much more active and involved than 20 years ago, they will find interesting and involving activities offered by their local Centers.
While senior centers still offer simple comforts, like warm meals and socialization, they’ve become much more than a meal site. Managers focus on keeping seniors active and involved by offering different types of exercise programs, holding activities to promote healthy brains, encouraging individual and group involvement in the community and promoting volunteer opportunities, all in a family-like setting.
You can come to one of the Centers for Active Living in Clearfield County and help celebrate the national theme of Experts at Living Well. Here are some of the special activities scheduled for this month:
