On March 31, the Lymes’ Senior Center issued the following statement:

Dear Residents of Lyme and Old Lyme,


The coronavirus has changed our regular life quite significantly and many of the daily activities that we took for granted can no longer happen for the time being. To that end, the Lymes’ Senior Center has begun virtual exercise classes and group get-togethers to help us cope with the isolation we all feel. In an effort to make a difference to all of our neighbors, we are offering a free temporary membership for all town residents, not just our regular 55 and over clientele. This membership would allow you to participate in all of our virtual programs. Currently, we are offering many yoga classes and other exercise classes on Zoom and YouTube, and we will be adding beginner and intermediate country line dancing classes and a Pilates class next week as well. You will also receive a weekly email with information about our virtual programs, boredom busters, and the coronavirus. Those interested in a free membership – which will extend through the entirety of our self-isolation period – should email seniorcenter@oldlyme-ct.gov and let us know! Stay well and be kind,


Stephanie Gould
Director of the Lymes’ Senior Center
