Newport 60+ Activity Center

Opening Monday, July 12, 2021 !!!!

New Hours: Monday – Friday 8:30 – 5:00 PM

Hello everyone!!! Wow!! Has this been a long time coming getting the 60+ re-opened! First of all I want to personally thank all of the wonderful people who have decided to return to the 60+ and volunteer their services, in the lounge, for games and activities, and for the Fitness Center leading exercise classes!! We will be re-opening with 7 exercise classes, and 7 activities/games. Hopefully in the near future we will have a couple of trips and educational presentations for people to enjoy!

As of Wednesday, June 20, 2021, the City of Newport is no longer requiring people to wear masks to enter city facilities. We will provide masks to those who wish to wear them, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizer.

All of the classes/programs offered here at the 60+ are now available to sign up for online. Go to www.newportoregon.gov/sc and click on the yellow banner to browse the catalog. Also, the Recreation Center home page has really good videos on how to create an account and sign up for classes. Another option is to give me a call and I can sign you up!

Membership is required to participate at the Newport 60+ Activity Center. The rates have been split into Resident and Non-Resident.

Resident:

Annual Membership - $25.35, 3 Month Pass - $15.20, and drop in fee for a one day use of the facility - $2.00.

Non-Resident:

Annual Membership - $30.40, 3 Month Pass - $20.30, and drop in fee for one day use of the facility - $3.05.

Just like at the Recreation Center, members of the 60+, are required to scan their membership cards at one of the scanners located at the North and West doors. Entry and exit of the building is limited to upstairs only, downstairs is emergency exit only.

For those who still had time left on their membership when Covid-19 hit, and the 60+ closed, I am working on manually extending those memberships.

New change for the Fitness Studio, disposable gloves and antibacterial wipes will be provided for those people who want to use the weights, stretch bands or the balls. Please disinfect the equipment before using in the class, and again after completion of the class. Also, please do not wear perfumes or fragrances to class, some people have allergies or asthma.

Hatha Yoga will not be returning to the 60+ at this time, but, Kelly is offering this class via Zoom each week on Tuesday, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Email Kelly at yoga4santosha@gmail.com with questions, or to sign up.

The Senior Association will be meeting here at the 60+ on Wednesday, July 14, at 10:00 am. They will decide at that time as to when they will be opening the gift shop, and scheduling the volunteers to cover the lounge hours.

Lunch in the dining room on Monday, Wednesday and Friday will not be offered at this time; possibly in August. As I get more information, I will be sure to let everyone know.

Meals on Wheels in Newport is looking for a few good volunteers to help cover routes delivering meals to clients on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also needed is a person to work in the kitchen to package food. If you are going to be home this summer and need something fun and community-oriented to do, please call Charlotte at 541-574-0669.

I am so looking forwarding to seeing all of you at the Newport 60+ Activity Center! If you have questions or concerns, you an email me at d.kecy@newportoregon.gov, or call me at 541-265-9617.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Dee
