ScottsValley Senior Life Association will sponsor two workshops in the Fall for seniors. We look forward to seeing you at both of these events:
Exercise for Stress Reduction & Health
Have concerns about your health or stress level? Exercise can benefit both areas. A local physical therapist will discuss the benefits of exercise and identify appropriate exercises for seniors no matter what your current conditioning is. Hear tips for getting started on an exercise routine most suited to your needs and lifestyle. Pick up a handout listing exercise classes appropriate for seniors offered at convenient locations in Scotts Valley.
Scotts Valley State of the City Address 2018
Back by popular demand, ScottsValley Senior Life Association will again sponsorthis well-attended information session for the third year in a row. Hear Scotts Valley's Mayor and other city officials discuss the city's most significant business developments, commerce, residential housing, and city infrastructure projects that transpired during 2018.
