Thank You

As some of you may know, the Gardner Senior Center shares building space with the CAC. For those not aware of this, the CAC operates their agency on the 2nd floor of the Pleasant Street building and we are fortunate to have them as our “neighbors”. Although the mission of the CAC is entirely separate from the mission of the senior center , we cross paths on many occasions. When circumstances allow, the CAC has been very generous to our seniors on numerous occasions , going above and beyond by extending their surplus offerings. We are grateful for all their hospitality and wish to say thank you to Andi, Karen, Julie, Lucy and all their dedicated team of helpers.

Wish List

We are always in need of candy (soft individually wrapped chocolates in particular) to share with our members and guests. We also have a need for yarn and knitting/crochet patterns. If you would like to make a monetary donation in honor/memory of someone, please make checks payable to Gardner COA. Thank you!!!

The Gardner Senior Center utilizes a computer program called “MY SENIOR CENTER” and this enables us to know how many people make use of the center. By registering as a member (NO FEE INVOLVED) you receive a scan card which enables you to sign in on our computer monitor. Swiping your card is not mandatory, but if you choose to, the senior center may gain some additional funds/grants based on how many feet walk through the doors. If you would like to receive a scan card, see Celeste or Claude in the first floor office. Please note that no information you provide is ever shared with anyone.
