“National SilverSneakers Day was developed to recognize physically active older adults across the nation and to honor their commitment to an active lifestyle,” Webster said.

The activities for SilverSneakers® Day includes a meet-and-greet in the morning followed by demonstrations of a SilverSneakers® class and the Y staff will present the city with a proclamation requesting this day be recognized each year in Atmore.
