SALISBURY, Md. – Wicomico County Recreation & Parks’ Happy Timers program kicks off its 2019-2020 season this week.

The group, for men and women ages 50-plus, meets in the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center Da Nang Rooms from September through May on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m.-noon.

A Welcome Back/Registration Day will be held this Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 9-11 a.m. at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center. There will be a meet and greet with the new director and free food and games. The first regular day will be Monday, Sept. 16.

Happy Timers offers exercise classes led by certified trainer Amanda Fooks. She follows an evidence-based program designed for seniors called Enhance Fitness. There is also a walking group.

Members also enjoy bingo, card games and more. It’s a drop-in program, so people can attend as often as they like.
