Thank you Governor Raimondo for visiting our Senior Center on April 29th.





Dear Friends,


The main signs of Autumn are here – the 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 “40th Anniversary” of enhancing, enriching and educating the lives of seniors.  We invite you to join us in celebrating this anniversary by placing a Memorial Ad in our “40th Anniversary” sponsor booklet.  This booklet will be distributed at various Center events throughout the year.  Sponsor forms are available at the Receptionist Desk.


PLEASE NOTE: The open enrollment period for 2017 benefit year will begin OCTOBER 15th and end on DECEMBER 7th, 2016.  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 pages 12 and 13 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 11th “Annual Pasta Dinner” fundraiser at the Senior Center.  As usual, the dinner was delightful and enjoyed by over 125 attendees.  Through Steve Palmieri’s generosity and commitment to the senior population, we are able to offer this annual fundraiser and allocate the proceeds towards our fundraising goals.  Thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser.  


We need your help!  SMRAC is participating in a national “Senior Center Flu Shot Challenge” sponsored by the National Institute of Senior Centers.  The top three Senior Centers in the country with the highest vaccination rate will receive a monetary prize.  Please invite your family and friends to attend our public Flu Shot Clinic on Friday, October 7th.


Looking forward to seeing you soon!


Warmest personal regards,

Karen Testa Leone

Executive Director
