- Exciting News From The Tilton Senior Center
I hope that you all are enjoying this wonderfully warm weather. Get your dose of Vitamin D while the sunshine lasts. It's so important to get outside each day in this part of the country, as we don't have enough sunshine all year round to get our daily requirements.
I'm happy to announce that we will be offering a shopping shuttle beginning in August. It will stay mainly in the commercial area of Tilton, and is a point-to-point service. This means that it will pick riders up at their homes and return them to their doors. A ride is $1/each way, or $2/round trip. We require a 24-hour reservation, and the bus will run on Tuesdays. It is available to seniors and disabled adults in Tilton, Sanbornton, Northfield, and surrounding communities. If you are interested in signing up, please call the center at 527-8291. Give yourself a break from summer traffic and ride our shopping shuttle! Our newsletter has more information about this great new service.
Also in August we are beginning a new class called A Matter of Balance. This evidence-based class helps seniors learn practices and behaviors, as well as exercises, that will help them prevent dangerous falls. It's donation-based, and full of wonderful information. Check out our flyer and give me a call if you'd like more information.
Don't forget we are now serving lunch twice a week. Our Thursday lunches appear to be bringing in new seniors each week. Please spread the word and come see who's here. You might just run into a long lost classmate or high school sweetheart. You just never know! Call 527-8291 to make a reservation by Thursday for the following week.
- Community Action Program to Increase Dining Opportunities at Tilton Senior Center
Great news! Starting July 1st, the Community Action Program will begin serving lunch on both Tuesdays AND Thursdays every week at the Tilton Senior Center. Lunch reservations can be made by Wednesday the week prior by calling 527-8291. We anticipate an additional meal, most likely brunch, to be added in the next few weeks. So spread the word, make a reservation, and join us for a delicious meal (see July's menu).
Take a look at the upcoming events in our July newsletter to check out some of our ongoing groups and activities.
