Reminder: Friends membership dues are renewable in January, 2016. If you are a ‘snow bird’ you may want to
get this task taken care of before you fly south. You can renew on line at www.friendsofnorthboroughseniors.org, or just clip the membership form out of your latest Northborough Times newsletter and mail it in, or drop by in person when you are next at the Senior Center. Note: The Friends Board of Directors meets at 1:00 PM at the Senior Center
on the 4th Monday of the month (except December). As a Friends member you are welcome to attend a meeting at any time. Now it is time for the Friends to step back a little during December and recharge in preparation for our events for 2016. Don’t forget our Broom campaign – ‘Sweep it Clean in 2016’. If you haven’t already purchased your broom please check them out near the jewelry cart in the lobby. Buy one and you’ll want another one! With sincere
appreciation for all you do to support the Friends we wish you all a wonderful holiday season.
Sincerely, Muriel Swenor, President
