COA Remains Open, But on a Limited Basis
Lobbies at both our centers in Three Rivers and Sturgis are open and seniors can stop in to purchase restaurant tickets; become a member; borrow from the Medical Loan Closet or any other business that can be handled at the reception desks. Masks are required. However, the centers will remain closed for activities and other programs until further notice. The closure means the COA cannot offer lunch at the centers, but it is offering lunches to go. If you would like a lunch to go, please call the COA 48 hours in advance to place your order. You can find a menu on this site on the Food and Friends page. The COA will offer many of its exercise classes and crafts on Facebook Live and on its You Tube channel. For more information or to sign up for lunch, call the COA at 269-279-8083. As always, we welcome your questions or comments.

New Program to Start at the COA that Combines the Best of Two Worlds
Many seniors enjoy playing Bingo. We also know that many also enjoy exercising. Bingocize is an evidence-based disease prevention program that merges these two fun activities into one. Bingocize mixes exercise, health education and Bingo and has been proven to be beneficial for all ranges of physical and mental ability. We will be offering it on Wednesday, August 19 at 10 a.m. and on Friday, August 21 at 11 a.m. We are going to play on-line through Zoom. Give us a call us at 279-8083 and we will email you an invitation to participate and explain how to get on to Zoom if you have any questions. Sounds like it will be lots of fun.
