When it opened in August, the MUSCL Senior Wellness Center at Schnitzelburg promised it would not only offer a place for senior citizens to have fun but it would be an educational opportunity in Schnitzelburg.

“I think we have helped the Center with that goal after the wonderful response to our CPR seminar there last Saturday,” says Councilman Jim King (D) 10.

Dozens were certified in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation after the October 13th seminar sponsored by King. Corporate sponsors included Norton Audubon Hospital and Wal-Mart.

The CPR Training was provided by Louisville Fire and Rescue, Baptist Hospital and Jewish Hospital.

“We more than met our goal of educating moms, dads and families on how to save lives not only here in District 10 but in the community at large,” says King. “The real reward will be if we help save one life after Saturday. Then the seminar will have done its job. We will continue to support this Center and we will always be prepared to help our citizens with any lifesaving situation to make this community a better and safer place to live”

King noted that the senior center was an ideal place for the seminar and says this is just one of many programs that will be popular since it is offered in a neighborhood setting.

The MUSCL Senior Wellness Center at Schnitzelburg is open on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s from 9 am – 4 pm and provides activities including computer and email access, exercise equipment use, arts and crafts, daily “lunch bunches” and a fully stocked library.

To learn more about upcoming programs contact the Center at 634-3221.
