WAYNE, N.J. (June 14, 2024) — The first official day of summer certainly calls for fun! Join two area skilled nursing facilities – Oakland Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center and Arbor Ridge Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center – for Samba Fitness and Wellness Day on Thursday, June 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. Free and open to the public, the family-friendly event will be held at the Wayne YMCA, located at 1 Pike Drive in Wayne. 

Festivities include interactive activities for all ages, educational opportunities, live entertainment, and booths featuring area businesses, gyms and vendors, as well as healthy smoothies and refreshments.
