The Westfield Area YMCA is pleased to offer a free Ageless Grace® class on Monday, January 23rd from 1:30pm-2:30pm at the Main Y facility, 220 Clark Street in Westfield.

The Ageless Grace® program has 21 simple exercises designed to be performed in a chair in order to develop core muscle strength and flexibility to stimulate the organs and systems of the body and to force the brain to figure out how to execute movements that are traditionally done standing up.  Participants will move to the music with confidence, playfulness and ease.  This class also encourages social interaction and an improved attitude and outlook.

The class is open to the community and led by Westfield Area YMCA Fitness Instructor Roberta Catuogno, who is one of 14 Certified Ageless Grace® Educators in New Jersey.

Advance registration is required by Friday, January 20th.  Members can register online at www.westfieldynj.org and non-members can register in person at the Main Y facility, 220 Clark Street.

    By 1885, there were 76 residents commuting daily from Cranford to New York City. Today, close to 1,000 people take the train every day from Cranford’s Train Station.

    Cranford is a close knit community where many of its residents are actively involved in schools, sports, civic and community organizations. The Township is proud of its recreational facilities that include two outdoor pools, an indoor pool and fitness complex, bike path, canoe club, tennis courts, sports fields and parks. Cranford has a first rate K-12 school system.

    The Township operates under a Committee form of government with five commissioners elected at-large for three year terms. The commissioners decide who will serve as mayor and deputy mayor for a one-year terms. Four of the commissioners have oversight assignments for the various departments and municipal operations.
