Senior Center happenings

By Reader Staff

Here are a couple of fun events coming up at the Sandpoint Senior Center.

“Widows Helping Widows” got off to a great start last month at the Sandpoint Senior Center. Four gals shared information about their common experiences. They also talked about referrals to services and resources in the area for repairs that their husbands had done in the past. They came up with a motto: “Women getting strong together!”

The next meeting will take place on Monday, July 25 at 10 a.m. in the SASi conference room. For more information contact SASi at 263-6860 to leave a message for group coordinator Vivian Kirkwood. Women who have gone through divorce are also welcome to attend.

Summertime visitors Lee and Lea Soltis have brought “Silver Sneakers” to SASi.

The Richard Simmons videotape is a great 40-minute workout that they do daily and has made them stronger and more fit.

The classes take place Monday mornings at 8:15 a.m. in the Sandpoint Senior Center, 820 Main Street. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers (of any color!) for this gentle stretching and movement class.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.

Want to support independent local journalism?

The Sandpoint Reader is our town's local, independent weekly newspaper. "Independent" means that the Reader is locally owned, in a partnership between Publisher Ben Olson and Keokee Co. Publishing, the media company owned by Chris Bessler that also publishes Sandpoint Magazine and Sandpoint Online. Sandpoint Reader LLC is a completely independent business unit; no big newspaper group or corporate conglomerate or billionaire owner dictates our editorial policy. And we want the news, opinion and lifestyle stories we report to be freely available to all interested readers - so unlike many other newspapers and media websites, we have NO PAYWALL on our website. The Reader relies wholly on the support of our valued advertisers, as well as readers who voluntarily contribute. Want to ensure that local, independent journalism survives in our town?
