The Attleboro Norton Y has a thriving community of active older adults who make the Y and physical activity an important part of their healthy lifestyle. Our Y brings members of all ages together for group exercise classes, sports, social events, specialized programming, volunteer opportunities, and so much more.
By coming together as a community, our members stay young at heart with great workouts, wonderful friends, and a lot of laughs!
Upcoming Events & Programs:
The Attleboro YMCA is proud to offer two free meals per week for seniors. The intent of this program is to support those seniors who struggle to have hot evening meals due to financial constraints, mobility constraints, health issues, and transportation issues.
Meals are available on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings. Register for a curbside pickup time slot or for at-home delivery. (For at-home delivery, meals will arrive 4:45-5:30 pm. At-home delivery only available to homes in Attleboro or Norton.) Please be sure to register each person who will need a meal, so we prepare the appropriate number of meals for you.

Tai Chi for Seniors
Tai = big or great. Chi = ultimate energy. Tai Chi is an ancient form of Chinese exercise consisting of slow, beautiful, relaxed movements that develop a sense of balance and harmony between mind and body. Practicing tai chi can improve balance, stability, and flexibility for seniors.
We’re excited that Ed Poirier will now offer this great class to all senior members of the community at our new location – the Sweet Community House on Peck Street.

Creative Clay Class
Find your inner muse!
This two-day creative workshop is designed to boost self-awareness, improve self-esteem and self-confidence. It allows seniors the expression of their inner thoughts or feelings and to lift one’s mood. Kneading clay and creating clay art allows the individuals to exercise their hands and improve hand-eye coordination by stimulating neurological pathways from the brain to the hands. Clay art may aid in stress reduction and relaxation. It is also used in treating, anxiety, and depression as well as coping with disability or medical illness.
No artistic ability needed!
Dates: Thursday and Friday, July 29 & 30
Time: 12:30-2:30 PM
