Perry County senior citizens now have a place to walk during the summer months.
In honor of National Senior Health and Fitness Day that took place on Wednesday, the Perry County Senior Center has launched its new Senior Walking Club.
Seniors and other guests are invited to come to the Senior Center Monday-Thursday from 1-2 p.m. to walk in a cool and safe environment free of charge.
“I’m trying to encourage movement and activity among the seniors,” Perry County Senior Center administrator Jennifer Freeman said.
She also hopes that the Walking Club will help with attendance at the Senior Center as well.
“If someone who is not familiar with what we do here wants to come in and walk, they might also decide to come for lunch one day and try it out,” Freeman said. “We are trying to get our name out there.”
