Today, they celebrated “Hula in the Coola” day at Chestnut Hills Center (26 Heybert Drive, on old Route 22, in Blairsville), which offers many activities for the older population. When there is no holiday to celebrate, it’s totally acceptable to create one, which is what they did! Everyone wore summer clothes (even if it was over their winter ones), and ‘tried to feel the heat,’ and got into the Hawaiian Spirit.

The Wii has been a big hit at the center for some time, also. If you’ve never tried your hand at this, don’t even know what the Wii is or looks like, and would like to try something new, stop by the center. The regulars will give you a free demonstration and teach you how to play. Beware! It’s very addictive and also great exercise and fun!

 

If you’re interested in trying the Wii Game, please call the Mahoning Hills Center at (724) 286-3099. Why not plan to make a day of it, and call the center and reserve yourself a meal and join us for lunch.
