Most people really are wonderful when you come down to it. We take so for granted all that goes on around us, but just think if you had nobody to share good conversation and fun times with, what would life be like? I just realized how wrong I was 20 years ago when we first moved here from NYC. We passed the Queensbury Senior Center on our way to our new home, and I remember commenting how I never would want to use the facility with all those “old-timers.” How dumb!
All these centers — Moreau, Greater Glens Falls and Queensbury — are worth their weight in gold. There is so much opportunity to participate in all kinds of things, not just of a social nature but even in body conditioning, much needed medical option education and astounding exotic travel, to say the least.
I hate naming names because I know I’ll miss somebody incredibly important, but I just have to compliment Kim, Joan and Sheila at Greater Glens Falls, Kathy and Melissa at Queensbury and though I’m not familiar with Moreau, I hear great things are happening there and I personally have profited considerably by the many art programs taught by the incredibly gifted Karen McGinn.
At Queensbury, Melissa plans some of the greatest travel tours I’ve ever seen. Try Iceland or a ride down the Rhine. Wow! I am shocked by the number of people taking advantage of the facility on just Thursdays alone. In the morning, there is a 30-plus-attendee aerobics class my wife attends. In the afternoon, 35 plus are playing pinochle, 20 playing bridge, 15 competing in mah-jong. That’s over 100 people in one day using the facility. What a credit to our towns, and I sure do complement our Supervisor John Strough and all his councilmen.
