The Osteobusters Exercise and Education Program is a community-based program for older adults which encourages participants to take steps to build and to maintain strong bones. It is presented in a small group format and is led by trained peer volunteers.

Scrabble is a word game in which two to four players score points by placing tiles bearing a single letter onto a board divided into a 15×15 grid of squares.

A line dance is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows, all facing either each other or in the same direction, and executing the steps at the same time. Unlike circle dancing, line dancers are not in physical contact with each other.
