I know that it sounds trite, but I can’t believe We are celebrating our 5th anniversary in this Senior Center. I hope you are planning to join us on Sunday, March 29 for our celebration. I am so excited that Liz Walker will be our keynote speaker. Having seen her at a conference I attended, I can attest to her wonderful and inspirational style of speaking. A lot of people were involved in the planning, the design, the construction and ultimately the use of this Senior Center. We have been able to add so many new activities to our calendar that we were never able to provide at our location at 1 Centre Drive. Not only are seniors enjoying the Center but it provides meeting space for the Northborough Garden Club, Cub Scouts and other non-profit groups. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that’s
involved with the Senior Center. Let’s celebrate our hard work and good times that we share! Kelly Burke

Please join us on Sunday, March 29th
for a 5th Anniversary Celebration
of the Senior Center at its 119 Bearfoot Road location
The festivities begin at 1:00 PM
There will be speakers, footage of classes and events, tours of the Senior Center as well as refreshments. If you haven’t experienced the Senior Center, now’s your chance to check out what you’ve been missing. If you’re a regular participant, bring a friend and come enjoy the party! We are thrilled to welcome our Keynote Speaker, Liz Walker. Many of you remember her years as a Boston News Anchor but there’s much more to her story. In her 40 years as a television journalist, international humanitarian, women's advocate and most recently an ordained minister, Liz Walker has learned a thing or two about human nature and hope. She shares her wisdom in a thoughtful and humorous keynote called " Practicing Grace; an everyday guide to moving the world forward!” We are very grateful to our corporate sponsor, Whitney Place of Northborough and the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center Inc. for their support of our special day!
