The Cape Henlopen Senior Center in Rehoboth Beach invites local seniors to participate in its virtual programs and events. Community members do not have to be members of the senior center to take part in these free classes and programs.
The center team members know that many seniors are experiencing stress, anxiety and loneliness during the ongoing pandemic, and they want to help. Using the internet and Zoom, the center is offering some virtual exercise classes and programs that people can take part in from the comfort and safety of home.
Here is a sample: Sit and get fit is offered from 9 to 10 a.m., Mondays, and beginner line dancing starts at 11 a.m.
Arthritis exercise starts at 9 a.m., Wednesdays, and Bingo fun goes from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To get a Bingo sheet, call the center.
Gentle yoga is offered at 9 a.m. and chair yoga starts at 1 p.m., Thursdays, and Tai Chi is offered at 11 a.m., Fridays.
Internet access is required for participation. To get login information for virtual programs, call the center at 302-227-2055 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
