Welcome to the CALENDAR HOUSE SENIOR CENTER
DEAR SOUTHINGTON SENIOR,
Welcome to the Calendar House Senior Citizen Center. The Calendar House was organized under the direction of the Senior Citizen Commission of the Town of Southington in 1969. The Calendar House, located at 388 Pleasant Street, Southington, is a multipurpose facility where residents of Southington, age 55 and over, can meet with old friends and new to help fulfill their social, physical, emotional and intellectual needs.
Our facility includes three classrooms, a computer lab, a fully equipped woodworking shop, a coffee/library lounge, a conference room and a game room. The Main Hall houses the Senior Community Cafe which provides hot meals daily, Monday through Friday, as well as our larger functions.
A variety of classes, taught by qualified instructors, are offered during two ten week sessions, one beginning in September and the other in January. The majority of these classes are offered to you at no cost, other than the cost of materials. Our Computer Learning Center, opened in March, 2000, offers course material and techniques specifically designed for teaching seniors, using state-of-the-art technology, equipment and software. A fee applies to computer classes.
Calendar House offers several day and extended trips throughout the year, as well as a variety of social functions.
For the sports minded, Calendar House offers a men's golf league, indoor badminton, mixed bocce league and horseshoe pits.
Our Dial-A-Ride Bus Service is available on a daily basis to any Southington resident who is 55 years of age or older. Transportation is available to shopping areas and doctor visits within boundaries of the town as well as to the Calendar House.
Executive Director, Robert Verderame, has been appointed by the Town Manager as the Municipal Agent to the Elderly for the Town of Southington. In that capacity, he, as well as other staff members, provides important information and referrals to aid our seniors. The following social services are provided on a regular basis: assistance with ConnPACE applications, yearly Renter's Relief Program, Energy Assistance Program, Food Stamps, Title 19, Income Tax and insurance counseling.
We look forward to meeting you and having you join the Calendar House "family". Stop in between the hours of 8:30 and 4:30, Monday through Friday, or call us at 860-621-3014.
The Staff of Calendar House
