If you have ever been to the Stretch & Strength class in Novi, chances are you know Florence Baptist.
The Novi resident, who is also a long-time Meals on Wheels volunteer, has been taking Coach Jo Schirtzinger's class since it was first offered back in 1994. At 90 years old, Florence remains committed to a healthy and active lifestyle.
Oh, and we would be remiss not to mention her artistic talent, too. Florence is also part of the All Things Yarn knitting group that made the tree socks seen outside the Novi Civic Center in the spring.
