Wenham Seniors Can Get Ice-Gripping Shoe Accessory at Half Price

Yak Trax are being offered top Wenham senior citizens at half price.

Wenham residents are being offered winter traction devices for their shoes at half price.

The Wenham Council on Aging is selling neon green Yak Trax for $7, about half of the normal price. The COA has 50 pairs available in size small, medium and large. The Yak Trax are being made available at a discount by the Friends of the Wenham Council on Aging.

The "handy little grabbers" slip over shoes or boots to provide traction outside in snowy or icy weather, the COA said when it announced the offer on Thursday. The winter traction devices are being offered to Wenham seniors because of "a sincere wish to improve senior safety during winter months," the COA said.

Senior who want a pair are asked to call 978-468-5534 or stop by the Wenham Senior Center to buy a pair. The Yak Traz have been available for the past week and more are still available. If the existing supply sells out, the Council on Aging will consider buying more.

If Wenham does not sell all it has, will it open the sales to Hamilton seniors? Be good Richard Boroff

Probably, but because the subsidy is from the Friends of the Wenham COA, we're starting with Wenham seniors. If Hamilton wants Yak Trax, Director Mary Beth Lawton can them for you but the subsidy applies to Wenham seniors. So Hamilton seniors would have to pay full price for this batch. Doesn't mean that won't change. Lucy Frederiksen, Wenham COA Board of Directors.

The full price that was paid for the TakTrax was $13.50, still quite a discount from the retail price of $20. I will speak with the Friends and see what they would like to do after the Wenham seniors have purchased what they want. Mary Beth Lawton, Director, Hamilton and Wenham Councils on Aging
