JCC to offer strength and balance lunch program for seniors Nov. 6

The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center will hold a “Senior Strength and Balance” Lunch and Learn program on Friday, Nov. 6 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the JCC of Syracuse on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. The event will begin with a hot kosher lunch followed by a presentation by Paula Pacini, JCC Sports & Fitness Center group exercise coordinator. Pacini will demonstrate safe and effective exercises for seniors that are geared toward enhancing strength and balance.

Lunch will be free for any senior who stays and attends the “Senior Strength and Balance” presentation thanks to the program’s sponsor the Green Family Foundation. Otherwise there is a $3.50 suggested contribution for the lunch portion. There is no cost to attend only the guest speaker’s portion which will start at 12:30 p.m. Registration for lunch is required. Register by calling 315-445-2360 by noon on Nov. 5.

The JCC Lunch and Learn series was launched earlier this year and offers useful and timely information on a range of issues facing seniors. The free monthly meetings feature local professionals covering topics on health, wellness, finances, legal matters, caregiving and more. The program is funded by a grant from the Green Family Foundation.

The JCC’s Lunch and Learns are an added once-a-month component to its successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program, which offers seniors, age 60 and over, a nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal weekdays at noon for a $3.50 suggested contribution. It’s the only senior nutrition program available outside of New York City serving kosher meals five days per week. The program is funded in part by the Onondaga County Department of Aging and Youth and the New York State Office for the Aging and Administration for Community Living. For more information, and to make a lunch reservation, call 315-445-2360.
