Enjoy the Twinkle!
Reflecting on our year, "2016" brings smiles to our faces. We hope you enjoyed our weekly 50/50 Raffle on Tuesday evenings, the charming Jewelry cart filled with treasures, a road race in May shared with our Rotary
Comrades, Northborough's 250th celebration of Applefest with our AWESOME Float and booth, our elegant High Tea & Fashion Show with the Historical Society and finally the very special annual Country Store Fair!
The Friends were able to financially assist with the new motorized shades on the BISTRO upper windows, the Railings for the stage that will be going up soon, Dr Hylander's presentations, and hearing devices. It truly was a full year of fundraising with warmth and camaraderie! On behalf of the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center, I want to wish everyone Happy and Healthy holidays! We are looking forward to "2017" filled with more fundraising surprises. Anita Hagspiel, President of the Friends
