This Week: Active Aging Week 2009

active aging week 2009

Millenium Development has planned “Active Aging Activities” all this week in honor of International Active Aging Week 2009.

The events listed in the colorful brochure run the gamut from Yoga to Knitting — happening all day around Brooklyn and Queens in parks, community centers, and gyms. The brochure does not make it clear whether the events are free or part of an organized event for paying members. One thing is certain: if you are anywhere near Southern Brooklyn this week, you are sure to encounter some Active Adults doing something fun — whether it be playing in a WII Tournament or Dancing Under the Stars.

This event is running from Monday, September 21, 2009 to Friday, September 25, 2009 and events usually begin at 9 a.m. and continue until late afternoon or evening. There are so many events and so many venues, that you will need to check the brochure or call the organizers for more information.
