The first session of "Fun Buns" (an exercise class for men and women 55 and older) was held at the VFW Post 8185, 520 Susquehanna River Road, on Saturday. The eight-week class is sponsored by Cecil County Senior Services and Community Transit. Instructor Cindi Lamb led Saturday's class to music from the '60s and '70s, including classic rock, disco, pop and Motown tunes. She invites all ages to "just show up" and work out with no jumping and no floor work. The sessions will start at 10 a.m. each Saturday and will run through March 30. Oh, and it's free. Questions, call Cindi, 443-8731-1131.
