If you're over 50 and living on the Florida island of Key Biscayne, you're in luck: The village is getting $90,000 from the state to expand and improve programs for seniors, the Miami Herald reports.
"It is exciting," says Ed Stone, president of the Active Seniors on the Key group.
"We have ideas, but we don't know what the Village has in mind."
The money will go toward senior programming at the village's Community Center, including yoga, tai chi, and art classes, as well as field trips, luncheons, lectures, and virtual bingo, the Village News reports.
"Not many communities produce such care for seniors," Stone wrote in a letter to the Key Biscayne Community Foundation on behalf of the seniors' group.
