This is a time for reflection as well as celebration. As you look back on the past year and all that has taken place, remember each experience for the good that has come of it and for the knowledge you have gained. Remember the efforts you have made and the goals you have reached. Remember the love you have shared and the happiness you have brought. Remember the laughter, the joy, the hard work and the tears, and as you reflect on the past year, also be thinking of the new one to come. Because most importantly, this is the time for new beginnings and the celebration of life. 2016 has been a great year at the Northborough Senior Center. We look forward to bringing you fun and exciting fund raisers in 2017! This is our ideal time to acknowledge that your friendship and contributions
have indeed made a difference! We wish you health and Happiness!
Anita Hagspiel, President of the Friends

***All dinners are $9.00 unless otherwise noted***
We began serving lunches at the Bistro @119 in 2010 shortly after we moved into the Senior Center. Then, in July 2011, we added the evening Bistro. The price for dinner has not changed since January 2013. Due to increases in food costs and entertainment, there will be a slight increase in dinner pricing beginning this month. Entrees will now be $9.00 and ticketed dinners with entertainment will be $12.00. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to serving you at the Bistro @119 in 2017!
