All the gymnasts in the wednesday group are also enthusiastic about their julie. "She is an example for all of us. We want to achieve that, too" , according to the unanimous opinion of julie’s 74- to 86-year-old colleagues. The oldest member of the active seniors’ group is also particularly appreciated for her constant good humor and the fact that she is always up for a joke. Julie dittrich also likes to take herself for a ride, laughing mischievously and saying wittily: "i don’t feel 90 either, but i’m not allowed to look in the mirror"." Even on this wednesday after her round birthday, julie still loves to go to her gymnastics class. When asked why she’s still there, she answers very quickly: "I don’t go out with people as much anymore, but I look forward to my wednesday. I’ve known everyone for such a long time, and it’s always a nice round. And I will also be picked up." Julie has been active in the SVB since shortly after the gymnastics groups were founded and was motivated to join by her sister gunda back in the 1970s. Since then she has been a regular member of the wednesday group. Together, the current 13 participants are 1029 years old and all of them still enjoy keeping mobile with ball, hoop and theraband.
