At our April gathering, we enjoyed being challenge– physically — through Margaret Coakley’s instruction and Body Recall. The exercises were not strenuous per se. However, their movement tested us in a surprising way, especially in the area of our core body parts [abs]. Margaret’s gentle approach was so caring that we all enjoyed the session with her tremendously. Thank YOU, Margaret! By the way, she leads classes at the Highland Park Senior/Youth Center on 220 South Sixth Avenue. Sign up sheets can be found on our information desk in the breezeway.
For our May meeting, we decided to do another visit. So on May26th, bring your brown bag lunch to First Reformed Church. We will eat at noon, and then head out in two cars to Johnson Park and the East Jersey Olde Towne Village. Hopefully the weather will be nice for us.
If you are not familiar with East Jersey Olde Towne, let me share with you the following: it features the largest collection of original, reconstructed and replicated 18th and 19th century structures, which “represent the vernacular architecture typical of farm and merchant communities of central New Jersey”. Structures include the New Brunswick Barracks (Visitors Center), Runyon House, Six Mile Run House, Vanderveer House, Indian Queen Tavern, Fitzrandolph House (Storytellers Cottage), and the Smalleytown Schoolhouse.
Again, anyone — even your friends — who are over the age of 65 are welcome to come along.
