Four years ago we began issuing membership cards and we now have about 175 participating members. We also enjoy the company of visiting seniors spending a few weeks or months with family in the area. We warmly welcome new members.
There are regularly scheduled activities as well as special trips and events every month at the Senior Center. The VNA nurse is available to take blood pressure readings the first Tuesday of every month from 11:30 to noon.
The Senior Center offers meals through the Nutrition Program on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The meals are served at noon. Seniors are asked to make a donation of $3.00 per meal and reservations should be made 24 hours prior to the meal by calling Jan Morando at 860-567-7437.
Northwest CT Transit provides our seniors with transportation to and from the Center, with pick up at the door, for a round trip donation of $2.50; 24 hours advance notice is required.
Tuesdays our chorus, the HarwinTONEs, practice from 11a.m. to noon. Additional singers are warmly welcomed. No auditions are required.....just a love of the oldies as well as seasonal and patriotic songs. Bingo games follow lunch on Tuesdays, and new folks are invited to join us.
After lunch on Thursdays, we alternate a variety of activities including crafts, games, and cards. The Lions Club generously provided us with funds to purchase round folding tables for these activities.
Two Thursday afternoons a month from May through October, the NW CT Transit bus takes a group of seniors someplace special: on scenic rides, miniature golfing, bowling, shopping, blueberry or apple picking, the beach, or for ice cream.
Wednesdays have become very special days at the Senior Center. One Wednesday each month there is a theme party. A catered lunch is served and professional entertainment follows. Attendance ranges from 50 to 75 seniors. We are very grateful to the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation for providing funds to pay for the entertainers.
Typically the last Wednesday of each month we have Lunch Bunch.
There are several events during the year that involve interaction with other groups and organizations in the community.
