It's September already! Where did the summer go? If you missed it not to worry, we have plenty of programs, activities,trips and classes to fill up your time this fall. September is National Senior Center Month! This year's theme is: "Building Momentum! Growing/Learning/Giving/Connecting"! Our brand-new, state-of-the-art facility is an amazing example of "Building Momentum" and as we transition into autumn, opportunities to grow, learn, give and connect are here! Instructional, innovative and interesting classes, clubs, trips and presentations are on the calendar.
Please stop in and check it out! The completion of the parking lot, construction and landscaping marks a new beginning celebrated with an Open House/Ribbon-cutting on Thursday, September 13th at 5pm. Special thanks to each and every one who contributed time, talent, ability and services to the timely and successful completion of this project! I'd like to thank former Town Manager Garry Brumback and current Town Manager Mark Sciota, the Calendar House Building Committee, KBE Building Corporation, BL Companies, Tobacco & Son Builders, Inc. and many other trades and sub-contractors. Multiple town departments provided help and expertise in various ways. A note of appreciation to Rep. Joe Aresimowicz, the late Rep. Betty Boukus and Dave Zoni. I would also like to give special thanks to my staff, the Membership and Advisory Boards, and the countless volunteers who rolled up their sleeves and did whatever needed to be done!
As we celebrate this accomplishment, we look forward to "being the future of what aging can be, changing the perception of aging and providing an important community resource."
Robert Verderame, Executive Director
