Calendar of Events February 12, 2015

Cal Mill Senior Exercise Class 2-12The Millington Senior Citizen Exercise Class recently celebrated its 13th anniversary during their annual Christmas Breakfast. The group consists of an average of 25 participants. It includes men, women and those who may not be able to attend rigorous exercise programs. It meets Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9 at the Baker Community Center. Participants engage in all types of exercises from strengthening muscles, stretching, to raising their heart rates. This hour-long program does include the use of weights but no machines are involved. Eugene Leech, the volunteer leader of the group, has noted, “The class is nothing but smiles,” as he and others take their exercise seriously. But not enough to distract from their bright attitudes. The best part of all is that it is free and it is offered enough to become a part of a healthy life routine. For anyone in the Millington area interested in this program, contact Leech at 872-4617 or 268-8103. Attending the breakfast front row from left were Liz Hartley, Pat Russell, Tomoyo Craig, Pat Clark, Tony Doherty, Anita Alexander, Charlene Scott, Bessie Taylor, Bea Pearson, Eugene Leech and JoAnn DuFrene; and back row from left were Tommy Coleman, Nancy Chunn, Dennis Scruggs, Larry DuFrene, Debbie Moore, Bill Moore, Marie Doherty, Gerry Jackson, Dawn Graves, Bill Parham, Barbara Harrell, Barbara Garrett, David Gibson, Barbara Loft, Joyce Avery, Gwen Andrews, Travis Walker, Marion Nadrchal and Izolia Walker.
