Leland Peters first joined LIFE’s Senior Center at East Side with his wife to take the seated Yoga class and to learn Line Dancing.
Now, four years later, much of his life revolves around the Center as he not only enjoys the activities, but also volunteers his time and talents. He now leads the Line Dancing Class, co-teaches a Social Dance class, and masterminds and plans major theme parties twice a year (including building and painting some amazing backdrops.)
