Senior center offers many amenities and activities

January 5, 2017 by  

The Natick Community-Senior Center is holding a variety of special events later this month and is also offering several services. Most of these events are free and open to the public.

The Sustainability Coordinator of Natick, Jillian Wilson Martin, will be presenting a talk on how to select an electricity supplier on Wednesday, January 18, beginning at 11:00 am.

The next day, Thursday, January 19, will be one of the Senior Learning Network interactive lectures. The topic will be the Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. The focus of the talk will be on the geologic processes of subduction, uplift, and erosion that created the tallest mountain in North America. Attendees will examine the size of the mountain and its influences on glaciers and the weather. The talk begins at 3:00 pm.

The Friends of the Natick Council on Aging also hosts a Little Gift Shop at the Senior Center to support activities and programs for seniors. It accepts donations of jewelry and other items and also operates the Lincoln Café, which is open from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Residents of all ages are also able to take advantage of the services of experienced social workers by appointment to help with housing options and assistance programs.

The Natick Community-Senior Center might benefit from creating flyers to promote its special services and events.
