Council Meeting

News from the Senior Center

we’re re-opening!

Well, here we are. It's June 2021 and our world is reaching for normal. The Gill Montague Senior Center is opening bt by bit. During the time of the pandemic restrictions, we were still doing our monthly foot clinic, brown bag, and parking lot pantry all with masks, social distancing, and not a small amount of anxiety, Staff was on hand, though often working from home, to answer questions, provide information, and help arrange vaccination appointments. Fuel assistance applications were completed, all of the wood from the Montgue wood bank was distributed, food assistance was arranged,and the AARP tax preparation program prepared tax returns for 36 seniors. The COA was able to schedule over 200 vaccination appointments for seniors who did not have access to the on-line registration and the number of people 65 and older in our community who are fully vaccinated is truly impressive. .

The Senior Center opened starting today (6/14/2021) for drop in hours from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PMm Monday through Friday and our regular programs are starting back up bit by bit. There is a card group meeting on Thursday afternoon, a knitting circle on Monday afternoons and chair yoga is meeting on the Discovery Center lawn on Thursday mornings, Please check our calendar (click above)

We're delighted that Linda Allis has started up her Monday, Wednesday, and Friday exercise classes, aerobics at 10:15 am and chair exercise at 11:00 am. She's promised to go gently for a few weeks just in case we haven't been keeping up with our fitness routines at home.

Registration is not required and the only covid related rule that remains is that guests and participants who are not fully vaccinated must wear masks. Over the winter, we had a very fancy whole-building air purification system and we have hand sanitizer everywhere. We are air conditioned and we always have a pot of coffee on. Please call 413-863-9357 if you'd like more information.
