So….  Here’s the skinny—could be  literally—on what’s happening as “The Y” comes to Garrettsville.

The facility is located at 8233 Park Ave. (the old Garfield Intermediate School, the old Garfield Middle School/Junior High, the old Garfield High School–once upon a time before the consolidation and the construction of the current Garfield High School in 1956); phone number is 330-527-2044.

The Active Older Adult Wellness Center opens March 2 with hours from 9a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Silver Sneakers (check with your insurance carrier) classes begin on Tuesday, March 3 at 9:45 a.m.  Silver Sneakers and Silver&Fit are fitness programs associated with supplemental Medicare; insurance companies may provide memberships at no cost.  Eligibility will be verified at the branch.

Senior(55+) memberships are $22 per month.  A senior couple membership is a bargain at $34 per month.
