second evening fitness class will begin on Thursday September 10th at 5:15PM.  Class includes cardio, stretching, strength training, yoga and ends with meditation so that you can go home relaxed and get a good night’s sleep.  The cost is $3 per class, cash or check.  Participants must bring their own yoga mats. 

Tickets are on sale now for the next Foxwoods trip on Thursday September 3rd.   The cost of this trip is $30 per person, which includes motor coach transportation, a casino package and the driver gratuity.

Oil painting classes with instructor, Barbara Antinoro will start Thursday, Sept.17 through October 22.  This is a shorter session than usual and only one painting will be created in that period.  The cost will be $50 for the session.   We are hoping that the lower cost will allow more of you to try your hand at oil painting.  The class will be limited to 8 students and we only have 2 slots left.  For more details you may leave your name and number at the Senior Center and someone will contact you.  The final date for signing up for this class is Sept. 10th

Bunka Embroidery Classes will begin on September 10th at the Senior Center.  The class is held from 1 to 3PM on Thursdays.  Why not come down and try out this form of Japanese embroidery which originates around the turn of the 20th century.  Bunka artists use a specialized embroidery needle and rayon threads to create very detailed pictures that some say look like oil paintings.

The Fred Manzi Band will be back at the Senior Center on August 28, 2015 at 7:00PM.  Come on
down and enjoy the wonderful music.  Tickets are $10 per person and are available at the door.

Because Labor Day falls late this year, the Upscale In-Take day for the month of September will be
held Monday August 31 from 3:00PM to 6:00PM.  Please note the change in time as well as the
change in date.   The Boutique is open during intake and is a good time to shop and you just never
know what you will find. New consignors are always welcome!
