Senior Circle is a great group to join! Sponsored by Lake Wales Medical Center, Senior Circle keeps seniors in our community active with health related activities and other events that are just for fun. Each month, there are member meetings to discuss upcoming events and outings. In December, the group traveled to Savannah to see the Festival of Lights. Not only does Senior Circle offer overnight travel, they also go on day trips. Special events in the past included an evening luau and a 10-day trip to Ireland.

Members benefit from health related activities each month.

Upcoming months will have Lunch and Learns on different topics, such as the importance of senior fitness. A Body Recall fitness class at the Lake Wales YMCA is offered weekly, free to all Senior Circle members.

A quarterly “Men’s Breakfast with a Doc” is also offered to Senior Circle men.

During this breakfast, men have a doctor’s undivided attention to ask questions. Lunch and Learns, exercise classes and the men’s breakfast are all free to members.

Senior Circle is offering free computer classes to their members. Classes are held quarterly and include topics such as basic computer questions, iPad help and assistance with the Kindle.

Senior Circle always celebrates member birthdays. Members and a guest are invited to a special meal during their birthday month, catered by Lake Wales Medical Center chefs. Holiday luncheons and socials are also offered throughout the year. For those who like to stay busy, Senior Circle holds crafts once a month. Crafts are usually about $5 a person. Members will also be able to submit their art in Senior Circle’s first ever art show. For those who like to get out and about, members meet at local restaurants to enjoy a meal and the company of others. Lunch and dinner outings are scheduled every month.

The Senior Circle goal is to provide the community with a more active and informed lifestyle. Membership to Senior Circle includes hospital and community perks. A quarterly newsletter is mailed to members to let them know of upcoming activities. Membership is $15 a year or $27 a year for a couple. This year, Senior Circle will celebrate its 11th year of the program. Come see what the fuss is all about!
