New Year’s Eve Party at Lakeview Lanes
According to The Bowling Foundation, more than twenty-five percent of Americans bowl each year, making it the nation’s largest participation sport. Today, bowling is a $4 billion industry with nearly 3,000 bowling centers in the United States. Besides being a fun and competitive game, bowling also offers you numerous health benefits for older adults such as muscle toning and strengthening, hand-eye coordination and stress relief. Plus, bowling is fun for the whole family!
So whether you love bowling or just love ringing in the New Year with friends, you’ll definitely want to come to the New Year’s Eve Party at Lakeview Lanes this Monday, December 31st at 8pm at 10502 W Thunderbird Blvd, Sun City, AZ 85351.
The annual New Year’s Eve Bowling Party at Lakeview Lanes kicks off with a potluck, bowling and prize drawings and the night will end with a champagne toast to the New Year! Everyone is welcome to the event even if you are not a bowler.

Sun City Healthy Habits for a Healthier You Workshop
Whether you’re an Arizona retiree or an active adult who’s always out and about, you know the importance of how health impacts the quality of your life. In fact, according to a 2014 study in the journal Health Affairs, those 65 and older spent about $18,424 per person on personal health care, “about three times more than the average working-age adult and about five times more than the average child.” And with the number of senior citizens on the rise (they make up over 13 percent of the overall population) healthy living has become even more important standard of living for the aging population.
Thankfully, at any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline. That’s why I’m excited to tell you about the Sun City Healthy Habits for a Healthier You Workshop on Wednesday, October 28th at 10:00 a.m. at the Sun City Branch Library located at 16828 N. 99th Ave; Sun City.
This free workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits that are associated with healthy aging: Cognitive activity; Physical health and exercise; Diet and nutrition; Social engagement. RSVP is required at 602.528.0545 and more information can be found here. The Healthy Habits for a Healthier You Workshop is recommended for anyone interested in looking for information on ways to age as well as possible so spread the word and bring a friend or two. Because the best way to enjoy retired living is when you’re at your absolute healthiest!

The Doggone Duffeeland Dog Park Reopens
The dog days of summer are nearly over, and Sun City residents and pet owners could not be happier to see the Duffeeland Dog Park reopen last week. A Sun City resident favorite, the Duffeeland Dog Park at Thunderbird and Del Webb boulevards had been closed for the last couple of months since June 17th for the improvements designed to make the park more enjoyable for its four-legged friends and their owners.
Some of the new upgrades included new park benches and new, smaller gravel. “It’s so much easier for seniors to walk on, and the dogs love it because they can run on it, where we had larger gravel before,” said Dorothy Paradis, president of the Duffeeland Dog Park Club.
The mature older trees were replaced with young pine and elm trees that will still provide plenty of shade for pups and their owners. Additional improvements included two double gates for more security that feature an automatic locking feature that is activated on a timer and will be locked during non-park hours. The $136,000 project also included a new combination of cinderblock and wrought-iron walls around the eastern and northern sides. Park hours vary depending on the time year and amount of daylight. Current hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. For the complete schedule and more details about the changes, visit https://sunaz.com/duffeeland-dog-park/.
No bones about it, Sun City retirees and their pup pals are “pawsitively” floored over the new and improved Dufeeland Dog Park! For more information about local news in Sun City AZ and in your Arizona retirement communities please contact Sharon Mason.
