Have you heard of Wii? Wonder what it is? Me, too. My 7-year-old granddaughter is a Wii expert. Her granny is not! If this describes you, here is your opportunity to learn about the Wii (pronounced "we"). Active Aging Week is Sunday through Sept. 25. Here at the Senior Center we will be offering one week of Wii lessons. Join us Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m. Our instructor will be Jamie Schnaithman. Jamie will teach us bowling, tennis, baseball and the Wii fit. This will be a good, fun activity. No sign-up is necessary, just come join us.
