PeterboroughSenior programs are back

Senior programming is back in Peterborough, with some new additions for adults ages 50 and over.

Weekly cribbage, Bingo, Mahjong, Kraft Korner and lunch programming via the Peterborough Recreation Department resumed in-person in May, senior program specialist Gloria Schultz said. In addition, a weekly canasta session on Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon started up last week, she said, and they’re looking for additional bridge players to form a group to play during the same time slot.

Mask wearing is optional for vaccinated seniors, and sanitizing remains a priority, Schultz said. Attendance is somewhat down compared to pre-pandemic, she said. “Some people are still reluctant to venture out especially if they have underlying health issues,” she said, while others are taking advantage of the summer season to travel.

Activities are advertised on the Peterborough Recreation Department website. There’s a suggested $2.50 donation for each activity. Residents can also sign up for a monthly paper or electronic newsletter, Schultz said. For more information, contact 784-5032.
