Exciting news is coming to the Salina Senior Center! Central Kansas Extension District will be offering the popular Stay Strong, Stay Healthy fitness class at the Senior Center beginning in January. What’s special about this program? Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) is a highly effective, research-based, fitness course created by the University of Missouri. It is a light weight-training class that will improve balance, flexibility, build lean muscle, and burn calories. It provides measurable results that can help reverse many of the physical changes associated with growing older. Starting as early as age 30, muscle mass begins to decline by about 1 percent - roughly 1/3 of a pound – a year. The loss of muscle mass is usually accompanied by an equal amount of fat gain, even if body weight stays the same. The adage “use it or lose it” has plenty of evidence behind it. However, even if you do lose it, there is hope for getting some of it back. This strength training class can help you achieve that. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy is designed for individuals of any age or fitness level. The exercises you will learn are simple, yet extremely effective for improving muscle areas of the entire body. Whether you are wanting a trimmer figure, increased strength abilities, or better balance and flexibility, every age and ability level will find benefits from this class. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays, 11:00 – noon on the 3rd floor of the Senior Center. Classes will begin January 23 and run through April 15. Leah Robinson, Health, Nutrition and Food Safety Extension Agent and certified SSSH instructor, will be teaching this course. Cost to attend all sessions is $20 per person. We will be using light hand and ankle weights, which will be provided for you. Registration paperwork can be picked up at the front desk of the Salina Senior Center or from Central Kansas Extension District, Salina Office beginning January 2nd. In order to provide personalized instruction, class size is limited to 15 participants. Completed registration forms and payment will be due back to the Central Kansas Extension District, Salina Office by January 18. The first 15 individuals with completed forms and payment turned in will be enrolled. (Reminder, the CKD Extension office is now located on the K-State Polytechnic campus. The address is: Central Kansas Extension, K-State Polytechnic, 2218 Scanlan Ave., Salina, KS 67401-8196. The office is in the Science Center building. If you need help with directions please call 785-309-5850.) Stay Strong Stay Healthy is a fun and simple way to gain strength and flexibility. It’s a great way to connect with others while doing something fabulous for your body! For more information, contact Leah Robinson at 785-392-2147 or lmrobins@ksu.edu ... See MoreSee Less

Meals On Wheels has grown and is in need of volunteers to deliver meals to seniors within Salina. Senior Services provides direct services to seniors Monday through Friday. Meals On Wheels, housed at the Senior Center has a full kitchen to provide a hot meal for seniors which can help them stay in their home while providing a daily contact. This program ensures they receive nutritious meals and a friendly conversation with a volunteer or staff member they know. Hot meals are also served within the dining room where socialization is key to maintaining a connection to society. When Meals On Wheels started in Salina in 1970, there were only 12 meals delivered a day. Currently there are 17 routes delivering approximately 140 meals. Several routes are getting too large and need split into two routes to make it easier on volunteers. Volunteers deliver every 6th week in a rotation schedule with other volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a Meals On Wheels volunteer please contact Linda Riedy, Meals On Wheels Coordinator at 785/823-7555 or stop by the Senior Center at 245 North Ninth Street. ...

Sewers Needed
Saline County Department of Senior Services, Sewing Group, Piece Makers, need volunteers to sew at the Senior Center.
This group meets every Wednesday from 8:30 am until early afternoon to work on projects and be a part of a group that have fun and build friendships while giving back to the community.
The Piece Makers are a well-known group that Saint Francis, Salina Regional Hospital, Tammy Walker Cancer Center, Birthright, Catholic Charities and Salina Police Department rely on to make quilts or Boppy pillows.
Quilts – Saint Francis Community Services works with children, providing a safe caring place where they can receive services specific to their needs. While the child is in their care, they receive a blanket that is hand made by the Piece Makers. Once a year the Piece Makers meet with Saint Francis staff and children and together they pick out a blanket for their bed. It is a small thing to give a child a quilt, but a huge impact for everyone involved.
Quilts are available for patients receiving treatment at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center, Birthright or services at Catholic Charities. A gift of a handmade quilt can provide a small measure of comfort or relief during a difficult time.
Children brought to the Police Department due to their guardian’s arrest may spend a lengthy time with staff waiting on family or placement to pick them up. This can be a very difficult time for that child. The Piece Makers provide a blanket so they have something to give them comfort.
Boppy’s – Saline Regional Health Services provides all the materials for the Piece Makers to make Boppy’s. These are pillows for new mothers to hold baby comfortably while feeding, a lounge spot for baby or for development issues to stabilize a child during therapy. The Piece Makers sewing room will be filled to the brim with materials when making Boppy’s. They form an assembly line that will have sewers, stuffers and finishers.
The public has a chance to view lap size quilts several times a year when displayed for auction at the Senior Center. Please check this publication, Second Sixty or Senior Services Facebook page for updates. All proceeds go to the Senior Center and to restock sewing supplies.
If you are interested in being a part of a group that make a difference, please call the Senior Center and ask staff to let the Piece Makers know you want to visit or join at 785-827-9818.
