Seniors 60+ FREE -  Did you know if you are a resident of Bowman or Slope County and your are 60 years of age or older you are eligible for a free membership to the Rouzie Rec Center?  All you have to do is fill out a membership form.  We offer a cardio room with recumbent bikes, eliptical machines, treadmills, inversion table, versa climber, and the very popular nustep machine.  We also have redecorated the cardio room and installed two large big screen TVs for you enjoyment while you exercise.  Many people prefer to walk in the gym for exercise.  And the weight room has many Nautilus weight machines.  These machines, once given an orientation, are very good for helping keep your muscle tone safely.  The Bowman/Slope Council on Aging has purchased memberships for all seniors through September 30, 2017.
