We’re also bringing back old favorites like the Applefest Bake-Off, the Applefest Luncheon & the Friends’ and COA/Senior Center’s tables at the Applefest Streetfair! Please join us as we kick off a
fabulous Fall at the Senior Center!
Our Mission – The purpose of the Friends is to financially assist the Northborough Council on Aging in providing programs and selective social services to the senior residents of Northborough and providing for the purchase of non-budgeted items for the Senior Center through membership dues, fund-raising events, grants, donations and corporate gifts.
"SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER..."
Have some "Fall Fun" with the Council On Aging/Senior Center and the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center, at their joint booths during the AppleFest Street fair on Sunday, September 17th. It

"We loved it! Can't wait to see more radio shows."
"It was a great time. I closed my eyes and was right there by my grandparents' radio."
"What a talented group of performers!"
"It was really fun to watch the sound effects team."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Northborough Senior Center 508-393-5035.
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!
