To the Editor:
We want to extend a huge thank you to NYA (Newtown Youth Academy) for the warm welcome they gave the senior citizens of Newtown. About 40 guests from “Friends of Newtown Seniors” were in attendance last night (August 17). They were served a lovely dinner and then given a tour of the NYA.
Many seniors did not have knowledge of what NYA has to offer. This was very timely since NYA has recently become part of the Silver Sneakers network. (SilverSneakers is a comprehensive program that improves overall well-being, strength, and social aspects. Designed for all levels and abilities, this program is generally provided by a health plan at selected sites throughout the country as a free incentive to promote healthy living. SilverSneakers provides access to fitness equipment, group exercise classes, social networking, online education, and a sense of community.) Even if you don’t have this perk through your supplemental insurance,
NYA is a great place to keep yourself in shape. They have many interesting program offerings and a knowledgeable staff to deliver the programs.
Thank you, once again, to NYA and also to the seniors for coming out to share this great evening.
