  • Looking for a great place for lunch or socializing? Maybe you are hoping to learn a new skill or take a fun exercise class? If youre 60 or older, look no further than the Riverton Senior Center located at 12914 S. Redwood Road. Jeanne and I have spent many pleasant hours socializing with friends at the Riverton Senior Center. It is a great recreational facility for independent adults 60 years and older. The center is provided through a joint effort between the cities of Riverton, Herriman, and Bluffdale, and Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services.

    Nutritionally balanced and delicious meals are served five days a week for a suggested donation of three dollars. Van transportation is also available to the Riverton Senior Center for residents of Riverton, Herriman, and Bluffdale.

    They provide free exercise and health classes like yoga, Zumba, and dancing. Educational opportunities such as computer classes and writing classes are also offered. Arts and crafts classes available include: Pottery, painting, and ceramics. Occasionally there are even evening events and activities to enjoy. There is no fee to participate in most activities.

    The senior center relies heavily on volunteers who donate their time and talents to keep the center operating so well. They are always seeking individuals who are willing to teach classes and share their expertise with others. Statistics show that seniors participating in these programs often remain more healthy and independent than they might be otherwise. The Riverton Senior Center encourages seniors to keep learning, moving, and actively living each day to the fullest. Seniors attending the center can participate in activities independently or they can bring a caregiver, family member, or friend to assist them.

    Dont let your perception of what a senior center is stop you from checking out what todays senior center is. Come and see what they have to offer! I look forward to having you join Jeanne and me at the Riverton Senior Center.

Simply purchase the goods you need over the next few months to stock the items you normally use. By adding a few extra supplies, soon you will have a months worth sitting on the shelf.

Additional preparedness information will continue to be added so that you can achieve your preparedness goals.

    Riverton UPD: 1 in 4 Car Crashes Caused by Distracted DrivingDistracted driving is a dangerous epidemic on Americas roadways today. In 2014 alone, 3,129 people were killed in distracted driving crashes. Utah Zero Fatalities states that in 2013, Utah crash statistics showed that distracted driving caused 17 fatalities, 1,944 injuries, and 5,013 crashes. Distracted driving is the number one killer of American teens. Alcohol-related accidents among teens have dropped. But teenage traffic fatalities have remained unchanged, because distracted driving is on the rise.More than 80 percent of drivers admit to blatantly hazardous behaviors, such as: changing clothes, shaving, painting nails, etc. Drivers on mobile phones are more impaired than drivers driving at twice the legal limit. An estimated one million people each day chat on their phones or send text messages while driving. Approximately one in four car crashes today involve some sort of distracted driving. The average time a drivers eye is away from the road when receiving or sending a text messages is approximately 4.6 seconds. In that amount of time while driving at 60 mph, you will go as far as the length of a football field. Utah distractive driving laws falls under two specific Utah codes which are:

    41-6a-1715. Careless driving 41-6a-1716. Prohibition on using a

    handheld wireless communication device while operating a moving motor vehicle.
