Keeping up with our Seniors: The temple builderswebmaster May 21, 2020 0 COMMENTS
When I began my role as Director at the Center—one of my goals was to have a private exercise room where classes could be taught and work-outs done with privacy. The Center always had great equipment but it sat out in the open. I felt more people would participate and use the equipment if it was placed in an area where the participants would not been seen.
Thanks to Ronnie Dent and Royce Turner that goal became a reality. The two of them together purchased portable room dividers. Some of the furniture had to be moved but in no time that exercise room became a reality. A grant was awarded to the Center which included 2 new treadmills and a TV for exercise videos to be used.
Before the virus came along—various classes were taught at the Center every week. These classes included Tai Chi, A Matter of Balance, Sit and Be Fit, Fitness Fun—as well as individual exercising. We were allowed to keep one class open during the pandemic. Of course, we could not allow more than 10 in the class.
This special class is held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. It is led by Rashad Kirven. It is called “Temple Builders” in reference to the bible verse: 1 Corinthians, 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you are bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”
We are anxiously awaiting all of our activities to resume at the Center. We sure miss seeing and interacting with our seniors.
