Letter From the Director

FROM THE DESK OF THE DIRECTOR

From the Director:

In part, our Mission Statement states; “The Holliston Senior Center is committed to serving the needs of those citizens who are 55 years and older.  It is our goal to provide seniors with healthy choices for their bodies, minds and spirits.” It is inspiring to see this in practice every day.  It has been proven time and again, that staying physically active, and socially engaged, improves the quality of life of all of us.

As I begin to think of my own retirement (don’t worry, not yet), I watch the activity of many of the amazing members of our community. It is encouraging to see how active many of our participants, in their 80’s and 90’s, are.  In 2017, while the largest segment of our members, 65-69 year olds, made up 24% of active participants, those who are 85 and above make up 12.5% of our active seniors.

This April, we will hit another milestone, in that we will see our first 100 year old active member. On April 11th, we congratulate Barbara Chamberlain on her 100th Birthday.  Please join me in wishing Barbara a very Happy Birthday.

Linda Marshall -  Director
