19 FUN & CARING FOR COMMUNITY SENIORS Peggy M. Seegars Senior Center The Peggy M. Seegars Senior Center is the place to be for active older adults in Wayne County. The center offers fitness classes such as: Tai Chi, Zumba, chair exercise, arthritis exercise, chair yoga, line dancing and more. The Seegar's Senior Center also has 12 pieces of commercial- grade fitness equipment with personal trainers to teach older adults how to properly use the equipment and work out safely. A partnership with Wayne Community College brings continuing education classes to the center. At the Senior Center, community members can join crochet, jewelry or painting groups. And with two regulation-sized billiard tables and 15 computers with internet, plus activities and events every day of the week, there is plenty to do year- round. Volunteer opportunities abound, and the center's nonprofit Friends group runs a gift shop on site. Each month a nurse comes in to cover health topics relating to seniors. We have a lovely little park area with gardening opportunities. Stop by today to see s why the Peggy M.
