You’re invited to join the Friends in support of Senior Center activities. 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!
It’s a very important month at the Senior Center. It’s time for us to formally thank all of the volunteers who help make the Senior Center a success. For the past few years, we have been holding “Volunteer Appreciation Week”. During the week, we have a couple of events that volunteers can choose from to attend. We’ve also added in a couple of surprises during the week. We will be doing the same this month during the week of June 18-22. We will be sending out invitations to all of our volunteers. If you have volunteered this past year, and for any reason you don’t receive an invitation, please call us to inquire. In the past, we have received invitations back in the mail because of an incorrect address or name misspelling. Often times, it’s after the events are over.
We don’t want anything like that to cause one of our volunteers to miss out. On behalf of the Council on Aging and staff, I want to thank each of our wonderful volunteers. Your dedication, friendliness and energy make the Senior Center a welcoming, vibrant place to be. We could not offer the variety of classes, programs and activities that we do without you!
