S.A.I.L., Wii, Bingo keeps Brewster seniors active and engaged

BREWSTER -- The Brewster-Pateros-Bridgeport Senior Center will be closed on Saturday, August 26, so seniors can attend an 11 a.m. memorial at Pateros High School for former member Bert Stennes, who passed away August 12. 
S.A.I.L. (Stay Active and Independent for Line) class will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 6, from 10 to 11 a.m.
President Kathy Lowry said the senior center was recently gifted a Nintendo Wii console with games and the rest of what is needed to set up and operate.
“It is a fun game,” said Lowry. “We hope to invite other senior centers to come and play with us and maybe we can travel to their sites as well and, if all goes well, we could even have tournaments.”
The Wii is not only a fun activity but also good exercise too, said Lowry. “You can even do it if you use a walker or a wheelchair.”
The center hopes to start Bingo again in September.
“People are requesting doing some games, like dominoes and various card games.” said Lowry. “We will get a general vote from the members and pick some days.”
The center is always looking for new members and those who might be interested in running for office.
“Three of our officers are stepping down at the end of the year,” said Lowry “We need some new blood, new ideas and hope someone will come and see what these positions entail.  It is for President, Vice-President, and Treasurer.”
