- 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. www.friendsofnorthboroughseniors.org
Director's Corner: It’s another busy month at the Senior Center. On the 7th, we honored our Veterans at our Annual Veterans Luncheon. On Saturday, the 22nd the Friends will host their annual Country Store Fair. Be sure to read all about the presentations we have scheduled and let us know you plan to attend! At the end of this month, we celebrate Thanksgiving. On behalf of the staff and myself, our very best wishes for a wonderful holiday for you and your family! Kelly Burke
FRIENDS’ BAKED ITEMS A FEATURE AT COUNTRY STORE FAIR, SET FOR NOV. 22
Each year visitors flock to the array of baked goods at the Country Store Fair, so the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center are once again appealing to the Center’s generous bakers to contribute pies, cakes, cookies, breads, and breakfast pastries. Of course, preserves are most welcome too for sale at this annual Friends event. It’s set for Saturday, Nov. 22, from 10 to 3 at
the Senior Center and is open to all with no admission charge. Please call Lee Zawacki at 508-393-9253 about what you plan to make, and bring your donations to the Center by 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21. The Fair will also feature holiday items, needlework, doll clothes, and handcrafts from outside vendors, plus surprises from Grandma’s Attic and jewelry bargains from
the lobby Gift Cart. The Bistro@119 will serve lunch from 11 to 1, and it’s a great day to bring family, friends, and neighbors to shop, eat and see our town’s beautiful Senior Center. All funds raised by the Friends support the Northborough Council on Aging and the Senior Center’s programs and activities.
