CHESTERTON | The Duneland Family YMCA held an open house Thursday to highlight programs designed for seniors that are planned for 2013.

The open house celebrated the launch of a Senior Center that is free to the public. The center will be open Mondays through Fridays. Coffee, activities and games will be provided; however, participants are encouraged to make program suggestions.

The Duneland Y also has begun offering the Healthways Silver Sneakers Fitness Program for adults 65 and older and others who are Medicare-eligible. Participants will receive a membership to the Y subsidized through this program.

In conjunction with the Silver Sneakers Fitness Program, a Silver Sneakers Muscular Strength and Range of Motion class will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in the fitness room. This class is complimentary with a membership. If a participant is not a member, the cost will be $2 per class. This class is designed to increase strength, range of motion, agility, balance and coordination, and improve participants' functional capacities, physical fitness level and sense of well being.

For more information or to sign up for the Silver Sneakers Fitness Program, call Emily Hoge at (219) 926-4204. The Duneland Family YMCA is at 215 Roosevelt St.
