It’s shaping up to be a busy June at the Senior Center. On the 14th and 17th of the month we celebrate the volunteers who do so much to keep this active and vibrant Senior Center running smoothly. On behalf of the Council on Aging, the staff and myself, we are very grateful for the generous gift of their time and talents! On Friday, June 24th we celebrate the Town’s 250th with a Lobster Bake at our very own Bistro @119. Tickets are limited and will go on sale June 1 at the Senior Center. Please see more details about this fun event in this issue! Kelly Burke
CAN YOU HELP?
The Senior Center has several volunteer vacancies. Positions include receptionist, The Bistro@119 and shopping helper on the van. Please contact Jocelyn Ehrhardt for more information.
We have wonderful volunteers at our Senior Center. We are carrying on a tradition that began last year. For many years prior to last year, we had a lunch, brunch or dinner to thank these deserving folks for the time and effort they spent in their volunteer positions. However, we always felt badly for those people who had to work, go to school, or had
some other commitment on the day that we held our event. This year, during our Volunteer Week, volunteers will have a choice of one of the following: on Tuesday, June 14 at 6:30 PM we’ll have an Ice Cream Sundae Buffet where you’ll create your own Ice Cream Creation with a huge variety of toppings and on Friday, June 17 at 11:30 AM, we’ll have a
Lunch Buffet. There will be other surprises as well and invitations will be mailed out asking volunteers to choose which event they’ll attend. If you have not received your invitation by June 4, please call the Senior Center at 508-393-5035.
LOBSTER BAKE TO CELEBRATE NORTHBOROUGH’S 250TH
In celebration of Northborough’s 250th birthday, the Senior Center is holding a Lobsterbake on Friday, June 24th at 5:30 PM at our very own Bistro @119. Tickets are available to people of all ages beginning on June 1st at the Senior Center. Tickets are $20 per person and include New England Clam Chowder with Oyster Crackers, 1 1/2 lb. Fresh Maine Lobster, Melted Butter, Corn on the Cob, Potato Salad, Warm Rolls/Butter, and Watermelon. An Alternative Ticket for is available for $12.00 that includes a Plated Summer Salad with Chicken or Tuna Salad made fresh in our own Bistro @119, Corn on the Cob, Chips and Watermelon. After dinner, you will be treated to a performance by Way Up South, a northern band with deep southern rock roots. Way Up South's music goes in
directions and to places
beyond the Southern Rock or Jam Band genres, and has earned them the right to call their music "Big Sky" sound, incorporating a maturity and musicianship that weaves in and out of southern, blues, country, jazz, and Americana rock songs with precision and finesse that still retains the loose, spacey qualities that are the hallmark of improvisational rock. You’re sure to recognize the members of the band as many of them grew up right here in Northborough!
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 1 at the Senior Center. It is limited to 100 people on a first come, first served basis.
