Senior citizens who want to stay active in the New Year are getting help from the City of Pierre’s Recreation Department. The department will fire up the winter session of its Seasoned Citizens program in January.
Programming starts Monday, Jan. 10 and includes Zumba Gold, Tai Chi, and Chair Exercises. Classes run through the middle of March and are open to all senior citizens. The program is free to members of the Pierre Area Senior Center. People who aren’t members of the Senior Center can also participate for a $10 fee.
Mindy Cheap, Pierre Recreation Superintendent says that the classes offer a great opportunity for seniors to stay active during the winter months.
“These classes are going to help with strength, balance and flexibility,” said Cheap. “And they provide seniors with an opportunity to be social; they’re all group classes.”
