SENIOR ACTIVITIES THAT ARE FUN AND MIND PROVOKING
When you are no longer working and have some free time on your hands, you may find yourself thinking about some of the activities that are popular in active adult communities. Some of those thoughts may include something relaxing but fun and mind provoking, like joining in a game of Canasta. Or possibly something more active like Bocce Ball or Pickle Ball? It all sounds great…. but you don’t know how to play Canasta or Pickleball. That is the detail these articles will provide you.
WHAT AND HOW
My research includes a compilation of information from various sources, including residents currently living in Senior or Active Adult Communities in Florida. Many of the communities offer a multitude of activities, along with a variety of many Clubs. Clubs such as the Men’s Club to the Women’s Club to the Bocce Club? So, which Club should you join? How many clubs can you join? Does it cost money to join a club? All good questions… and you will find many of those answers in the forthcoming articles that will assist you and point you in a direction that is matched with your interests and potential.
