As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer and colder, we begin to settle back into our cozy homes to prepare for the approaching Winter. However, November has many special events and holidays to keep us busy; Presidential election on Tuesday November 3rd, Veterans Day on Wednesday November 11th and Thanksgiving on Thursday November 26th. This year’s activities for everyone will be
different than the years’ past due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We urge our members to remain mindful of keeping themselves healthy and safe while participating in the holidays and other activities. This year’s
traditional Veterans Day program has been altered due to the pandemic. But, we hope to see you at our Drive-in Veterans Day program on Tuesday November 10th. This year, we are also unveiling our new Veterans Wall of Honor of Center members who are Veterans. This display will be available year-round for viewing.
As a reminder, we will continue to serve our mini-lunch program with the options of curbside pick-up or delivery. We are continuing to offer lunches by donation. We are very thankful for those who continue to help support the mission of the Milford Senior Center with their donations and membership. Thank you all so very much. We hope to see you soon.
