Manila opens therapeutic pool

Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Manila senior citizens enjoy the first week of the therapeutic pool under the instruction of Billie Sue Misner.

Manila senior citizens are the first to benefit from the Manila therapeutic pool at the Dunkin-Wall Water Park. The inside heated therapeutic pool was first offered to the Manila Senior Citizens that attend the senior center for the remainder of the year.

Billie Sue Misner is instructing the senior citizens in water exercises three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

Seniors enrolled at the senior center site in Manila are invited to participate. The cost for the senior citizens for the rest of the year is $1 a week.

Several of the participants said the senior citizen center is the best thing Manila could have done for the senior citizens and the therapeutic pool is a bonus for the ones who will benefit from it. They expressed their appreciation to the city for providing the center and the pool.

Seniors from 60 to 90 enjoyed the therapeutic pool last week.
