Awesome Senior Y Walkers

​Thanks to a partnership between the Community Center/Boothbay Wellness Foundation and the Boothbay Region YMCA, people age 62+ are invited to walk on the track at the Y on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10 am and noon. Some people walk with oxygen. Some use walkers or canes. Everyone gets encouragement and moral support. We all log our laps.  We also provide transportation in "The Van" to and from the Y for those who don't drive.

Van Enrichment Trips

Our Community Center Van isn’t just for transportation to and from The Community Center.  It opens the walls of The Center to include the world outside of our peninsula.  Enrichment trips to date have included the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, to the Maine State Museum in Augusta and to the Sabbath Lake Shaker Village for The Native American Craft Show.  There is no transportation or admission cost, people just buy their own lunch!
