Many senior citizens in the Vergennes community are active in the spring, summer, and fall with various activities, community groups, and walking. However, in the winter with colder temperatures and less sunlight, these activities are difficult to maintain, even more exacerbated by the current Covid-19 pandemic. Encouraging maintenance of physical activity throughout the winter months in Vermont is difficult, but can provide many benefits to these individuals both physically and mentally.
