It’s no secret that many seniors have been impacted by the pandemic last year and many were isolated.

So, to get seniors moving and socializing, the YMCA of the Fox Cities hosted a day in the park for the "Young at Heart."

Seniors got to play bingo and enjoy all sorts of entertainment as a great opportunity to get out and connect with friends.

“Being with this group. The socializing, and being out, and just being outside even though it's a little windy today,” said Sharon Dunbar, a senior who attended the event. “But just being out and about and being with my friends and making new friends also!"

Lunch was also provided, allowing the seniors to also mingle over a good meal.
