FRIENDSHIP BRICKWAY FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
The Friends of the Northborough Senior Center kick off our 2017 Friendship Brickway fundraising campaign.
There is something very striking and real about a memorial that has been engraved in brick to commemorate something
or someone who has an impact on others. We tend to think of something "carved in stone" as being permanent, significant and
having great meaning. As with all Friend's programs funds raised in the campaign for the Friendship Brickway will support the Northborough Council on
Aging and Senior Center activities. The Friendship Brickway campaign will run through October 1. For more information contact Henry Squillante at email@example.com, or
the Northborough Senior Center 508-393-5035.
You’re invited to join the Friends in support of Senior Center activities. Please use the form on this page. All seniors of Northborough and surrounding towns are welcome to take part
in Senior Center activities, and all are welcome to visit at any time!
