September Happenings at Sandwich Senior Center

A little something for everyone...

From the Sandwich Senior Center...

September is Senior Center Month:

At long last, the Council on Aging was able to present the updated Feasibility Study to the Board of Selectmen and the Community on July 13.      Our Board Members did an outstanding job crafting an informative and

hopefully enlightening presentation as did Architect John Catlin. 

We thank the Friends of Sandwich Council on Aging for their support and funding the study to update the plans for a Senior Center.  Their generous donation of $6,750.00 made the study possible.

The Council on Aging thanks the Selectman for inviting us to present the completed study.

Also needed to be thanked are the many, many interested seniors who attended to learn more about the project and/or to show support.   We look forward to your feedback and working with everyone to bring this project to completion.


The Council on Aging will be happy to meet with any group to present the results of the study and to speak about the work of Council on Aging.
