MISSION OF THE NORTHBOROUGH SENIOR CENTER AND COUNCIL ON AGING
The role of the Northborough Senior Center and Council on Aging is to maintain or increase the quality of life for the mature citizens of the Northborough community. This is done through support, advocacy, planning, coordination, and implementation of programs that bring mature citizens together for social, recreational, and educational purposes. The Council on Aging seeks to educate the entire community and enlist its support and participation.
Plan on spending some of the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer with us! Cool off with the air conditioning and a fun program or two. Vickie Killeen, Bistro @119 Manager, is happy to welcome you to lunch or dinner at the Bistro. Check out our new offerings: Hula Hoop Classes, A Color Workshop for Painters or come and listen to a speaker from Worcester Regional Medical Reserve Corps talk about preparing for an emergency. Stay active this summer at the Northborough Senior Center! Kelly Burke

Bring on the Boomers...
(This presentation is part of our Bring on the Boomers but you don’t need to be born between 1946 and 1964 to join us)
Lincoln's Assassination, April, 1865
Date: August 19th
Time: 6:30 PM
Presenter: Gary Hylander
Join us as we discuss the events and outcome of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators had devised a plan to save the Confederacy by murdering Lincoln, Vice President Johnson and Secretary of State Seward. Entering noiselessly into the Presidential box, Booth shot Lincoln. He died the following morning. Standing at the President’s bedside, Secretary of War Stanton’s first words remain the truest and the best. “Now,” he said, “he belongs to the ages.”
