The city of Alexandria is leading the pack in promoting healthy activities for seniors with its annual “Health and Fitness Fair” being held this year on Wednesday, May 23rd beginning at 9:30am at the Lee Center at 1108 Jefferson St. in Old Town. This fun event has a little something for everyone. Participants can join in healthy demonstrations, receive free health screenings, have fun line dancing with friends and family, and try out simple exercise programs intended to improve balance and strength. We will be participating in the fair with our Food Services Director, Robert McKeon showcasing healthy food options.

We hope you’ll join us for some or all of our programs. Together we can keep everyone healthy and fit.
