January 29, 2014

You might be surprised to see who's already enjoying your new state of the art Orion Center.

With so many wonderful opportunities to engage in just about any activity, we are certain you will appreciate Orion's newest destination spot, located at 1335 Joslyn Road. The community center is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with extended hours on Monday and Thursday, to 9 p.m.

This state of the art facility was built with seniors in mind and is equipped to accommodate the active lives of busy seniors.

Want to keep your new year's resolution? Then consider using the fitness room which is very popular for seniors over 62. The facility includes cardio training, treadmills, resistance machines, and recumbent exercise bikes. Everything is designed to encourage you to stay fit and have fun all year long. Annual membership is just $5 for residents and $10 for non-residents. The fitness room is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is restricted to those aged 62 or older.

Looking for a great way to meet people? Then consider shooting the breeze over coffee or shooting pool at the Pool Shooters Club.

We invite you to explore the arts with us as we travel to Meadowbrook Theater on February 26 to see Lysistrata Jones. This murder mystery is set in the 1930s and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Please give us a call to make your reservations today.
