Shawnee Senior Happenings: Senior fitness programs

Amy Riggins, recreation facility supervisor for the city of Shawnee.

Good morning, Shawnee! In 1965, President Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law, thus establishing the Administration on Aging and funding designed to meet social services for older adults. It has been renewed several times since then, and in Shawnee the Central Oklahoma Economic Development District (COEDD) administers Title III grant funds for such things as Health Promotion.

Here at the Shawnee Senior Recreation Center a portion of our senior fitness program is funded through the Title III grant. We are thankful to COEDD and their continued support for healthy living activities for seniors.

As you may know, the Senior Rec Center offers programs and activities for individuals aged 55+. We are located at 401 N. Bell, in the same building as the former high school gym, with open hours of Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
