Greetings from the Director
Summer fun is in full swing at the Senior Center! This month, Ed Lewis, Watertown’s Energy Manager, will join us for a Lunch and Learn to help us understand what electricity choice is all about. It helps residents and the Town save money, but how does it work? Mr. Lewis will help us sort it all out. We will also bring back the dynamic Professor Gary Hylander for Part 2 of his June D-Day lecture that will focus on the Battle of the Bulge. You won’t want to miss it!
Our Fall Trips are on Sale now. We will be taking our Senior Shuttle for lunch at the Villa Restaurant and shopping, and we will be traveling with Fox Tours for a trip to Stockbridge and the Norman Rockwell Museum, and a trip to Newport, RI for a holiday excursion. Our Tuesday Evenings of Supper and Games with Pearl will be ending this month, so make sure to register now before they are over, and our Annual BBQ is scheduled for August 13. We hope to see you!
As always, please share with us ideas for new programs and trips, and continue to check-in your attendance at the My Senior Center kiosk when you enter the building. Thank you!
