Just because you are a senior citizen, it does not mean you have to stop learning and experiencing new things. As a matter of fact, the senior years are the perfect time. You have no time restraints, you can do what you want when you want too and all of these community centers have special deals and prices for senior citizens. Now is the time to do all you ever wanted to do and never had the time for.
Take a look at these community centers and see if one of them appeals to you. They all offer something different, things for the very active senior citizen and things for those who are looking for more sedate activities. If these are not convenient for you, there is probably one that will be closer. Check with the community centers in your area, check with organizations such as the YMCA, Salvation Army and local churches. Many of them have fine programs. And if they do not, they may be able to come up with some suggestions.
So, stop sitting around. Get up and get out and see all that Boston offers it’s Senior Citizens. Use the ones here for examples of what can be available and show everyone just what senior citizens are capable of doing. You just might surprise yourself at what you can accomplish also.
