Coming Up at the Bellingham Senior Center
The Bellingham Senior Center is located at 40 Blackstone St., Bellingham. Reach them at (508) 966-0398 or visit www.bellinghamma.org.
SENIOR DRIVE-BY LUNCH PROGRAM has been discontinued until March/April depending on the weather.
VALENTINE PARTY: Tuesday, February 14 the COA & BESG will host a joint Valentine party for seniors at 12 p.m. and all will enjoy delicious soup, sandwiches, dessert, and beverages. $7 per person. Please call the Center and reserve your seat!
WE NEED HELP: We have many seniors calling the Center asking for help with shoveling/plowing. This is a definite need, and we don’t know how to help except to ask you to check on your neighbors. If they aren’t cleared out after a snowfall perhaps you or someone you know could help them and clear a path so they can get out of the house and at least get the mail as many seniors get medications via mail. Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
ACCEPTING DONATIONS: If you are doing any winter reorganizing and cleaning out of basements we are accepting donations at the Senior Center! We DO NOT accept shoes, clothing, furniture and electrical appliances!
COA BOARD MEETING will be Tuesday, February 14 at 11 a.m.
FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH: First of four quarterly presentations on Friday, February 24 at 1 p.m. Topics will include basic genealogical forms, where to re-search, tracking your research, and questions to ask living relatives. Presenter is Seema-Jayne Kenney who started exploring family history while in high school.
