With few restrictions and declining COVID-19 infection rates, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced the return of a variety of free weekday senior citizen activities offered by the Department of Community and Youth Services in community centers throughout the Town. These popular programs, which had been suspended throughout the last year due to the global coronavirus pandemic, will return on Monday, May 17th and run through Friday, June 25th. Line dancing, exercise and tai chi classes are just some of the activities seniors can enjoy as part of this year’s program.
“Senior citizen activities are returning this month and I invite our residents to participate in these free activities, where they can once again enjoy the company of others, make new friends, and stay active,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Our senior activities are some of the most popular programs the Town offers, and I expect this year to be in higher demand than ever before as seniors can finally get out and be active as infection rates decline and vaccination rates climb!”
Beginning on May 17th and continuing through June 25th, the following programs will be offered: line dancing, tai chi, exercise, book club, and more opportunities for socialization. Activities will run each day of the week, Monday through Friday. Seniors interested in any of these activities must reserve a spot in advance. Due to the pandemic and restrictions currently in place, class sizes are limited. Additionally, only one class permitted per week.
