Preregistration is required, and there will be limited seating due to COVID-19 safety measures. Bingo will start at 12:30 p.m. followed by music and hors doeuvres at 2 p.m.

The center will continue its exercise and crafts programs until the end of the year. On Fridays, the Easy Country Fitness starts at 10 a.m. and is for those Country music lovers. The instructor is Connie Clark, and it is described as a free fun, beginner-friendly dance class.

Adult Coloring is every fourth Monday at 1 p.m, with the next session on Dec. 27. There also is a stamp collectors group that meets every second and fourth Tuesday of the month. The next one will take place on Dec. 28.

Preparing for the winter weather is something that the Granby Council on Aging wants to make sure seniors are ready for. Together with the TRIAD, they have sponsored a program called Sand for Seniors. Those interested can call the center to order a bucket of sand to take home with them to prevent slips and falls on stairs and walkways when there is ice and snow.

Also, with the cold weather underway, there are free mens and some womens winter coats available. The COAs newsletter states, Please call or stop by to find something suitable for you. . See the January newsletter for upcoming and updated information on this event.

WestMass ElderCares catered lunch is available at the center on Monday, Thursdays and Fridays. Interested parties should call at least 24 hours in advance for a reservation. The suggested confidential, voluntary donation is $2.25.

For those who may need weekend meals delivered to their homes, one of the numerous Supportive Services available at the Granby COA is the Weekend Meals: Take and Eat Inc. People Feed People Program. The meals are prepared and delivered by the faith-based community in South Hadley and Granby on weekends for those who are 60 years and up, homebound, unable to shop, drive, prepare meals or have low mobility. Anyone interested can call Kathleen Ryan at 664-1041.
