Have you noticed the freshly painted gazebo and the newly mulched beds? The lawn has been mowed and all of the trees and shrubs have been trimmed. The Enfield Senior Center has had a lot of attention from the Buildings and Grounds Division and the outdoors could not look better. Of course, our attractive garden in the entrance has been planted and is maintained by the Enfield Garden Club. We are so grateful for the care and attention.
Cardiologist Muzibal Chowdhury, M.D. is a strong advocate for living a healthy lifestyle. I know because we often run into each other at the gym. Dr. Chowdhury will share what it takes to keep your heart healthy and functioning properly on Thursday, August 23, at 6 p.m., at the Enfield Senior Center for “Keeping Your Heart Healthy.” Learn what foods will keep you healthy and how much exercise you should get every day. Please register by calling the Senior Center office.
