   This year, we are adding a new feature. Because of the proximity to Veterans Day, we would like to honor all those who are either currently serving in the Armed Forces or who have done so in the past. One thing we will be doing is adding what we are calling "The Table of Honor." We invite you to bring a picture of yourself, your loved ones or someone you know who is/has served so that we may express our gratitude. 
   
   We hope to see many new friends this year!
   
   SilverSneaker Classic: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 a.m. While this is not a formal Intro class, it is a good way to get started in muscle strength and flexibility. It is not an aerobic class. SilverSneaker insurance is not required.
   
   Free to SilverSneaker participants. Small fee per class for all others. Need not be a Meridian Ranch resident to participate.
   
   No previous experience needed. We will start with the basics and build from there. 
   
   For friends 65 plus: If your insurance policy or Medicare supplement includes SilverSneakers, you are welcome to come to the Meridian Ranch Recreation Center and take any of our land/water classes for free. You do not have to be a resident to participate, and you are not limited to SilverSneaker classes. You would also be entitled to a free Y membership.
