YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Davis Family YMCA, 45 McClurg Road, will join an estimated 1,000 groups Wednesday to celebrate the 22nd Annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day, the Y executive director, Timothy Hilk, says.

As an official host site, the Davis Family Y will offer free activities for older people from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Among the activities are screenings, fitness evaluations, land and water fitness classes, an outdoor walking club and a pickle ball demonstration from 10 a.m. to noon, organizers say.

From 10:30 a.m. to noon, Dick Hartzell will speak on “Stretching in Your Senior Years” and offer a demonstration with bands.
