Lecture: Where There's a Will, There's a Way | June 8

As we age, there is a tendency for us to put up barriers to our dreams. If only we were younger! Join Will McMahan, as he challenges this mindset. Will is not an athlete, he’s just an average person who decided to exercise at the Y, yet he bicycled across the United States last year. He believes that we can do far more than we think, in the twilight of our lives. Will tells of his cross country experience, and uses this event to illustrate how an average person can do more than they thought possible.

Age: 21+
When: Thursday, June 8 at 2 pm
Location: Cascade Room
Registration: May 22-June 8
Cost: Free and open to the community, space is limited so please register online or with the Welcome Center

Mahjong

Age: 50+
Come play a round of Mahjong with us in the lobby. A large number of seniors suffer from dementia at one point in their life and by indulging in this game of tiles, they have a better chance of ensuring this does not happen because the game helps to sharpen their memory skills and aids in keeping the mind sharp.

When: Mondays at 1 pm
Where: Lobby
Cost: Free and open to the community, drop in and join us!

Seniors Day at the Safeco Field | August 16

Crack! It’s going, going, GONE, and the crowd goes wild! Baseball is a game of happenstance: From one pitch to the next it cannot be predicted, and it is this suspense which keeps anyone who watches on the edge of their seats and why it is such an enjoyment to watch. Anyone young or old can enjoy the game of baseball because of its infectious nature. Join us for Seniors Day at Safeco Field to watch the Seattle Mariners take on the Baltimore Orioles. This special event includes a lunch buffet with drinks, popcorn, and great seats on the Terrace Club level.

So much to see and do, just leave the stress of driving and parking to us, and enjoy the sights of Seattle.
