Aging in Hartland hosts Senior Café, on the first Friday of every month at the Hartland Public Library from 10 – 11 am. Senior Café is an accessible and hospitable space for senior Hartland residents to gather with a mission to foster community, connection, and wellness.

Aging in Hartland can provide friends and neighbors to spend time with homebound seniors or those wanting some social time with others. Please call the Aging in Hartland office at 802-674-4118 and someone will return your call. Volunteers will be notified and a volunteer will get back to you with the name of a local Hartland resident who can come to your home or the home of someone you know.

Exercise Class

Aging in Hartland sponsors a virtual Bone Builders Exercise Class on TUE and THU morning, 9-10:15 am. The exercises are specifically geared to seniors and modeled after an exercise program developed at Tufts University. The program focuses on increasing strength, range of motion, and balance. These exercises also help individuals maintain and increase bone mass. Therefore, they can delay the onset and/or progression of osteoporosis, or porous bone disease, in which bones become fragile and more easily broken. The classes are led by Hylene DeVoyd and Muriel Farrington and are Zoom-hosted by AiH volunteer, Sarah Bruce. There is no charge for these AiH classes.

Newcomers are welcome and encouraged to give this a try. If you want to exercise more frequently and are not motivated to do it by yourself on a regular basis, you are very likely to find it is so much easier when you are with (even electronically with) a group of friends. Consider watching a class or two to see if this is something you would enjoy. We already know you will benefit as long as you stick with it 😉. If you are interested in joining, we will set up a one-on-one session (on Zoom or possibly in person) to go over the exercises with you.

If you are not sure how to connect to a Zoom online meeting, instructions are provided and help is available. Basically, you click on the Zoom link in the e-mail that Sarah sends out each MON. Zoom is a highly effective way to hold this exercise class. It saves travel time and money for gasoline and is exceptionally helpful in bad weather! Rain, snow, sleet, icy roads…. No problem. AiH’s Zoom BB Class will be there!

To get on the e-mail list and receive the weekly reminder message and link, e-mail the AiH office at

Because you will be doing these exercises in your own home rather than in an in-person class, it is essential that you understand that THIS CLASS IS AN AT-YOUR-OWN-RISK ACTIVITY. You are expected to have a method to call for help if needed, for instance if you fall. This can be another person in your house or a phone or medical alert/emergency button that is within arm’s reach while the class is in session. Additionally, you are expected to keep hydrated, do only as many exercises and repetitions as you are comfortable with (more will come with time if you want), and rest as needed.
