October means Oktoberfest
The Oktoberfest will be held on Friday, Oct. 12, and is sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Senior Support Council and the Placerville Senior Nutrition Lunch Program, who do such a great job for us. The event will be held in the El Dorado Hills Community Services District gym on Harvard Way. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., entertainment begins at 11 and lunch will be served at noon. Lunch is delicious, served with the help of our friendly, local fire department. We sure appreciate all they do for us. The suggested donation for lunch is $3 for seniors age 60 and older; all others pay $5. Call the Senior Center at (916) 358-3575 to make your reservations.

Senior Nutrition lunches
Delicious and nutritious lunches are served weekdays at noon, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane. For seniors 60 and older the suggested donation is $3, all others $5. This is a great place to have lunch, meet new people and visit with friends.

All new! Forever Fit classes
We have four brand new morning fitness classes beginning in September. Our Forever Fit Series of classes includes: Fit for Life (a low impact workout including cardio, strength, balance and core work); Still Going Strong! (20 minutes each or cardio, strength and core/flexibility); Zumba Gold (dance moves and rhythms from Salsa, Tango, Rumba and Cha-Cha); and Sit and Get Fit (train your entire body while never leaving your chair!)

Seniors can attend one or all four of the morning classes with a very flexible “punch-card” payment system. We are excited that Gina Bartok, certified senior fitness specialist, is returning to instruct these brand new classes. Call us regarding class schedules.
