Seniors take advantage of some wintertime fun -- Gazette.Net


Residents of Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg took a trip to Roundtop Mountain Resort to enjoy some snow tubing on Friday. The 20 retirement community residents who visited the Pennsylvania slopes ranged in age from their 70s to mid-90s.

Asbury Methodist Village partners with its sister community, Bethany Village in Mechanicsburg, Pa., to provide the annual snow tubing trips.

“Our staff is right alongside the residents just in case someone needs a little help,” Asbury Fitness Director Cathy Moxley said, “but for the most part, everyone has all the strength and agility they need to have a ton of fun.”
