Welcome back! It is so exciting to be able to be open again and see everyone.

Masks are required for those that have not been fully vaccinated. If you have been fully vaccinated, we encourage you to still wear a mask when not eating or exercising. Please continue to sanitize your hands with the sanitizer located throughout the building.

Not much has changed, but we are working on some new programming. A few things that have changed: Sadly, our computer guru, John Cahill, passed away in May of this year. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We are in the process of scoping out a new exercise instructor, as Melanie DeCosmo sold her home in Suffield and is planning to move to California. She also will be greatly missed but we wish her well in her new endeavors. Bear with us while we seek a new instructor. The DVD exercise classes will be offered temporarily until that time and are free.
