"It's not the same old, same old," said Kasper. "We love it because it brings out a whole different, new group, and if we can entice them to come to other activities that's also good."
Kasper also reported that the Senior Center has a new Wii video game console.
"You have to move and it's wonderful, so we're trying to put together a project for seniors who are a little younger," said Kasper.
The Wii is not only introducing Niskayuna's seniors to new technology, but it is also helping them get fit or stay in shape, thanks to the programs and games that encourage movement and exercise. Seniors can play everything from virtual tennis to virtual golf. They can also go virtual skiing or even do yoga.
"They absolutely love it. They love the bowling and the tennis even," said Kasper.
