We had a wonderful time celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the Senior Center at its 119 Bearfoot Road location on March 29. Many thanks to our corporate sponsor, Whitney Place Assisted Living Residences/Beaumont Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center for their generosity in making Rev. Liz Walker’s visit possible. Rev. Liz Walker’s talk on “Practicing Grace: An Everyday Guide to Moving the World Forward” was met with a standing ovation! Many thanks to our Friends of the Northborough Senior Center, Inc. for their generosity in providing the food that was expertly prepared in our very own The Bistro@119. It was great to see John Coderre, Town Administrator, the Board of Selectmen, Representative Harold Naughton, Representative Danielle Gregoire, Ed Murphy, Executive Director and
Trish Pope, CDP, Marketing Director or Whitney/Beaumont, and the many members of our community and surrounding towns that helped us celebrate. My sincere appreciation to the staff and the volunteers who give their best
every day to make the Senior Center such a vibrant place. I am truly fortunate to be your Senior Center Director and I look forward to future milestone anniversaries! Kelly Burke
