Game Afternoon Saturdays,November 2nd, 2019,
1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Since some folks do not like to drive at night, we thought we’d try a few daytime Game Afternoons. If you have a game you like to play, please bring it with you. Bring a snack to share, meet new friends, or see old friends and have a few laughs. Of course, we will continue our Game Nights every third Saturday of the month, but if you’ve avoided those because you do not drive at night, come out and see what you’ve been missing.

AARP/ Senior Resource
Center Walking Club Wants You
AARP would like to partner with the Senior
Resource Center to start a walking club. We all
probably are aware that walking is one of the
simplest ways to stay active and achieve a
healthier lifestyle. Research has shown that
walking can have a significant impact on your
health by lowering your chance of heart disease.
It can also help to control weight, strengthen
bones and muscles, and increase longevity. One
way to make walking easier and more fun is to
walk with a friend or group.
Would you like to join our
first- ever walking group? In our December
newsletter we will announce the date of our
start-up/planning meeting at SRC in January.
We invite you to join us then, so we can see
how many of us are interested and decide
when (time/s of day and frequency of days per
week) and where we can walk together. Some
suggested sites are:
• Old Pungo Ferry Road
• Military Aviation Museum
• Nanneys Creek Road
• Stowe Road
You do not have to be an AARP member, and
you don’t need to be a senior to join this
proposed group. You just need to be motivated
to get outside and get more active. We can
inspire one another and get heathier too. Even
if the walkers only meet as a group once a
week to walk together, it could be an ideal way
to supplement SRC’s exercise group on
Thursdays.
If you would like at least to find out more about
the walking group idea, call the Center at 385-
2175 and leave your name and phone
number or email us at [email protected]. Plan to
join us at our planning session in January and
bring your ideas re walking times and places with you.

5 Surprising Ways Volunteering Transforms Your Health
Why You Should Volunteer at SRC
Think of the last time you volunteered for
something. Perhaps you chaperoned your
grandchild's field trip or helped organize a food
drive for your local food shelter. You probably
felt pretty good after doing these good deeds,
and there's a scientific reason why: According
to the Corporation for National and Community
Service, a study of Americans over the age of
60 found that those who volunteered reported
lower disability and higher levels of well-being
than those who did not volunteer. That's
because volunteering improves your whole
health — mind and body. Here's how:
Volunteering improves your social wellbeing
Volunteering often involves socializing and
building strong bonds with others — and can do
wonders for your health. Whether you're
helping clean up your local park with a group of
20 community members or spending time at
your favorite animal shelter with a few friends,
you're reaping the healthy benefits of working
with others.
Volunteering helps you stay active
Getting out and planting flowers in your
community garden or repainting your town's
library are just a few ways you can volunteer
and get in some exercise. These types of
activities help you work different muscles and
build strength. Plus, they're a fun alternative to
your typical workout routine. Just be sure to
check with your doctor before participating in a
volunteer gig that involves a lot of physical
activity.
Volunteering gives you purpose
Your community, non-profit organizations,
charities, and the people they serve depend on
volunteers to support their causes. That's why
when you volunteer, you matter — and this
sense of purpose can have a big impact on
your health.
Volunteering boosts your mood
Volunteering is uplifting — you meet new
people, learn new skills, and make a difference
in someone's life. Surrounding yourself with
these positive vibes helps you build confidence,
develop a strong support system, and feel, well,
happier. This can help combat symptoms of
depression, and since your mental health is
strongly connected to your physical health, your
overall health can benefit from the moodboosting power of giving back.
Volunteering keeps your mind sharp
Challenging your brain is a great way to keep it
strong. And when you participate in mentally
stimulating volunteer activities like tutoring or
event planning, you're doing just that. These
types of volunteer activities help improve the
cognitive functions of your brain, like your
working memory and information processing.
So, if you're looking for new ways to stay sharp,
try volunteering. Find a cause that matters to
you, donate the time you can to it, and enjoy
what you get from giving back.

Lecture and Pot Luck Lunch
Tuesday, Oct. 15 10:00 am
Thomas Zeir, Constituent Services
Representative for Rep. Elaine Luria,
Congresswoman for the 2nd District of Virginia,
will tell us about the services and assistance
available through his office. Rep. Luria’s staff
can provide assistance with Federal programs,
including Social Security, the Department of
Veterans Affairs and the Internal Revenue
Service. Mr. Zeir will explain the process of
seeking help if you can't get an answer from a
federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel
you have been treated unfairly.
In the near future, Mr. Zeir will be able to visit
the Senior Resource Center on a regular basis,
by appointment only, so you can meet with him
1:1 to discuss your concerns and problems. We
were fortunate to have a similar routine with a
previous Congressional aide, and it was a very
beneficial resource for our members. We will
advise you of his tentative schedule as soon as
possible and we will provide authorization forms
for you to fill out prior to your meeting with him.
Take advantage of this convenient and helpful
resource and sign up for a session as soon as
the date is announced.
Please bring a dish to share for the pot luck
lunch after the lecture and arrive at 9:30 if you’d
