Events and programs offered at newly reopened Senior Center

VERO BEACH – Senior Resource Association (SRA) will begin offering new programs and services to the public at the new Schumann Hall Senior Center, beginning Monday, June 7.  Senior programs never ceased during construction of Schumann Hall, as most programs were relocated to Leisure Square Fitness Center and St. Francis Manor, but the new facility will allow for expanded programming.  Schumann Hall is located at 686 14th Street in Vero Beach.

“The newly-remodeled Schumann Hall allows us to offer new programs and services to Indian River County seniors,” says Karen Deigl, SRA President and CEO.  “We have focused our new programming around social, recreational, health and wellness, and arts and cultural offerings for our seniors.”

During the week of June 7-11, all new and ongoing classes and programs at Schumann Hall will be offered free to the public.  New programs will be introduced during the reopening celebration week including Wii tournaments, group piano lessons, ballroom dance classes, Qigong, and yoga.  Door prizes will be given away daily throughout the week.

Special events for the week include a free pancake breakfast at 9 am on Wednesday, June 9 sponsored by The Isles of Vero, Qigong instruction, and a free Hawaiian luau party at 2:30 pm on Friday, June 11.  Dance music will be provided by The Senior Center Band and prizes will be awarded for the best outfit and best hula-hooper.  Special events require advance reservations by calling Kerry Bradow at 772.469.2062.

The new Interactive Resource Center at Schumann Hall, sponsored by the Minotty Family Foundation, enables SRA to offer expanded programs in the future including computer instruction. Other programs planned for the future include brain fitness; matter of balance classes; drawing classes; and health and wellness presentations; as well as an onsite SHINE representative to help with Medicare issues.

The new Schumann Hall is available as a rental venue to the public to host such events as weddings, parties, group meetings and more. For details call Kerry Bradow at 772.469.2062.

The Senior Resource Association has been providing activities, education and services to seniors throughout Indian River County since 1974.  Programs and services include Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Care, Senior Center activities, Transportation, In-home services, Case management and Volunteer opportunities.
