Where Seniors Can Find Recreation

Where Seniors Can Find Recreation

The Sully Senior Center provides Fairfax county residents age 55 and over with about 40 different activities a month and offers socialization with seniors of the same age. Exercise classes are given everyday, including strength training with hand weights, Jazzercise Lite, Arthritis exercise, and Body and Brain aerobics.

Operated by the Fairfax County Department of Community and Recreation Services, the Sully Senior Center is housed at 5690 Sully Road (Route 28 South), across from the I-66 East ramp.

Planned activities are scheduled daily Monday-Friday for a variety of interests — physical exercise, billiards, bridge, computers, health tips, dancing and art classes.

There's something for everyone — Sing Along's, pizza parties and piano performances, ballroom and line dancing, aerobics classes, to name a few.

The center also offers sightseeing trips to places like Baltimore or the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

The center hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 703-322-4475.

ANYONE 55 YEARS or older may join for free and transportation may be available if you live within the Fairfax County area. Call the center for more details.

A calendar of events highlights the monthly offerings, as well as an extensive lunch menu.

There are five lunch choices available daily — a hot meal, a vegetarian hot meal, a chef's salad, a fruit salad or a sandwich — based on monthly income. Lunch menu items may include: beef teriyaki nuggets with glazed sweet potatoes, breaded baked fish with rice pilaf, chicken parmesan with steamed pasta or chicken Caesar salad, and more.

Reservations for lunch must be made a day in advance. Cost is on a sliding scale based upon the individual’s income; guests pay $5.
