Dear Friends,


The main signs of Autumn are here – leaves on trees are starting to turn colors, local farms are selling pumpkins and apple orchards are crowded. 

Autumn is also the time of year we celebrate the Senior Center’s anniversary. This year we are celebrating our “38th Anniversary” of enhancing, enriching and educating the lives of seniors. We invite you to join us in celebrating this anniversary by placing a Booster Ad or Memorial Ad in our “38th Anniversary” sponsor booklet. This booklet will be distributed at various Center events throughout the year. Sponsor forms are available at the Reception Desk.


PLEASE NOTE: The open enrollment period for the 2015 benefit year will begin OCTOBER 15th and end DECEMBER 7th, 2014. This is the time to think about your health benefits and to make changes to or enroll in a health plan. Representatives from Blue Cross Blue Shield of RI and United Healthcare will be at the Center during October to discuss plans available. Please see page 12 for the dates and times of these informative presentations.


Special thanks to School Committee member, Stephen Palmieri and D. Palmieri’s Bakery for sponsoring their 7th Annual Pasta Dinner Fundraiser at the Senior Center. This dinner will be held in conjunction with our “Cabaret” show on Friday, October 24th at 5:30 PM. This fundraiser is almost SOLD OUT – purchase a ticket soon! 


Please invite your family and friends to attend our public Flu Shot Clinic on Friday, October 10th. The Senior Center will receive $1.00 for each vaccine administered.


In closing, I send my heartfelt thanks to Senator Domenick Ruggerio and Senator Frank Ciccone for their commitment to the Senior Center and the special population we serve. Once again, Senator Ruggerio and Senator Ciccone, each secured a $10,000 grant allocation to our agency. We are extremely grateful for their many years of support! 


Looking forward to seeing you here at the Center! 

Warmest personal regards,
Karen Testa Leone
