Seniors Kick Off the New Year

Seniors Kick Off the New Year

The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department invites area seniors (55+) to participate in upcoming activities at three locations, including a new Bridge group in Spring Hill.

 

Potluck and Holiday Parties

It’s a new year and you are invited to make some new friends at our monthly senior potlucks. Please bring along a side dish or dessert to share, and we will provide the meat and drinks.  After lunch, enjoy a game of bingo with prizes!  January potlucks are: Monday, January 9 at the Franklin Recreation Complex, 1120 Hillsboro Rd. (activity #8408); Tuesday, January 10 at the Longview Recreation Center at Spring Hill, 2909 Commonwealth Dr. (activity #8373); and  Wednesday, January 11 at the Williamson County Recreation Complex at Nolensville, 7250 Nolensville Rd. (activity #8280). Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and lunch begins at noon. The potlucks are free, but registration is required at www.wcparksandrec.com.

 

Bridge Group

A new Monday bridge group for seniors begins January 9 at the Longview Recreation Center at Spring Hill, 2909 Commonwealth Dr. Play bridge every Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This is a free activity held in the game room. Call Rebecca Fulcher at (615) 302-0971, ext. 2218 to sign up.

 

Senior Games

Join the fun with other seniors every Thursday from noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Williamson County Recreation Complex at Nolensville, 7250 Nolensville Rd.  Play cards or games, knit or just chat in the senior activities room. No registration is needed. This is a free activity. Just drop in and meet other area seniors!

 

Pickleball

If you are looking for a new way to be more active, try Pickleball, a relatively new game popular with many seniors. Pickleball is a cross between badminton, tennis and ping pong, and it’s lots of fun. No registration is required, just facility admission at the door.  Open Pickleball for beginners is offered at the Longview Recreation Center, Franklin Recreation Complex and the recreation centers in Fairview and Nolensville. For times, check the gym schedules at www.wcparksandrec.com.

A number of exercise programs for seniors are offered by Williamson County Parks and Recreation in Franklin, Nolensville, Spring Hill and Fairview. Classes vary at each location, and may include Aerobic Fit, yoga (beginner, strength and advanced), SilverSneakers® Classic, circuit training, indoor cycling, water aerobics and more.
