LOWVILLE, N.Y. (WWNY) - Community wellness is part of the goal of the new Double Play Teen and Senior Center that opened this week in Lowville.

The center is packed with activities and games for old and young.

Double Play Community Center is a not-for-profit, formed in 2011 and operates two other facilities in Lowville, those focusing more on fitness.

This center will offer more programs for ages toddler on up.

“Schools can’t give everything to the kids after school hours. Seniors who have to work or seniors that retire, they’d like some thing to do socially. So this gives them a hub to kind of look at for opportunities, either for fitness, or the the socialization component with what we’ve devised here with the senior center,” said Dan Myers, executive director.

Among activities at the new center will be painting lessons for adults, set to begin in September, taught by Brantingham artist and art teacher Sally Norstrant.

The center’s mission is to improve the overall quality of life in Lewis County.
