Stoneham Senior Center 3rd Annual Community Open House

September is National Senior Center Month, and what better way to celebrate than to bring new friends in for lunch, an excursion, an activity, or assistance? Plan to bring your friends, neighbors and family to our Third Annual Community Open House on Saturday, September 27 from 11:00AM-2:00PM.

This is an opportunity for us to welcome new visitors and acquaint them with our wonderful Center. Meet some of our program instructors and check out many of the resources available to seniors in our community, including home care needs, housing assistance, and transportation.

Then, shop for some great bargains as the Barn will be open for business that day! Whatever the weather, you and your guests will enjoy raffles, entertainment, refreshments and hot dogs. YOU are the best advertising for the Senior Center, and this is a great opportunity to invite anyone who may not yet be familiar with us. Mark your calendar!
