We’re also hosting “Early Voting” thanks to our Town Clerk, Andy Dowd. Read more about it in this issue and plan to vote here at the Senior Center instead of having to go to the polls on November 8. Hope to see you at the
Friends’ High Tea and Fashion Show on October 15. Thank you to the Friends for their wonderful gift of shades in our Multi-Purpose Room. The shades are a wonderful addition and make it much more enjoyable to dine at the Bistro@119 and do activities in that room. We are very grateful to the Friends for their ongoing generosity and continued support!
CAN YOU HELP?

A MESSAGE FROM OUR VOLUNTEER LIBRARIAN, AUDREY SULLIVAN
For all of you readers, the Senior Center has shelves of books available for your enjoyment. Just pick out your choices and enjoy. When finished, simply place them in the “Return” basket on the lower left shelf.
The books are coded with stickers. Fiction is marked with a pink sticker and filed alphabetically by author. Large print is filed with regular print books but they are marked with either blue stickers that say Large Print or with yellow stickers. Nonfiction books have green stickers. We are continually working on ways to organize this area for your use and enjoyment!
