One of my favorite places in Ypsilanti is the senior center @ 1015 Congress. Monica Prince, the Director, does an amazing job running the place. Everyone loves her. Besides her vast responsibilities running the place, Monica teaches a very creative art class. She says, “Lets try to see all the possibilities in our lives.” She makes everyone welcome, the true artists as well as those who specialize in stick people.
Exercise classes are free for seniors. One very popular class, Exercise with Mark, improves balance, strength, strength and cognitive capabilities. All this while having a great time. It’s easy to forget you’re exercising! Gentle Fitness is a low impact class that is easy on the joints. Line Dance with Dee is so much fun. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced dancer or you just want to do your own thing. All are welcome.
Additional services offered for a small fee include acupuncture, massage, a visit with a foot nurse, and best of all, lunch. Most of all the social benefits are free. Stop in for a coffee, great conversation, make new friends or just have a laugh.
