I would like to invite our Milford residents, 55 years of age and older, to join our family at the Senior Center. Membership is just $15.00 a year. Take a few minutes and visit us. We are open Monday from 9:00 a.m.till 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. Visit our web site milfordctseniorcenter.com and see the many activities, educational programs and services offered to our membership.
It is with pride that we are able to provide so many diversified opportunities to our approximately 3,000 members. During the Fiscal Year, July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016, we were happy to welcome 353 new members. This is an increase of 10 % over last year.
This year, our Milford Health Department’s Annual Flu Shot Clinics will take place 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday, October 17 and Wednesday, October 26. Further information will be available and published in our September Bulletin and local media. Please do not arrive at the Center before 9:00 a.m.
Just a reminder, our Center is an air conditioned facility and provides cool comfort for our older adults. The Senior Center is open on Monday evenings until 8:00 p.m. and on Sunday afternoons from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. Call 203 877-5131 before 4:30 p.m. to verify if we are open any other weekday evenings until 8:00 p.m. due to temperatures in the high 90’s.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable August.
Best Wishes Always,

FROM THE DESK OF EDITOR, ELEANORE TURKINGTON
This has been a steamy, hot summer hasn’t it? We are all looking for ways to keep cool and comfortable. Do you remember as a child, jumping under the water from a garden hose or enjoying staying up past 9 o’clock at night in the cool night air to catch fireflies? These days we can enjoy the cool air conditioning at our Center. Whether you’re creating in our Art Department, exercising, playing in our band, or enjoying Wii bowling or a game of bridge, you can be assured of a day of air conditioned comfort. May I suggest you take a close look at the events for August in this month’s edition of the Bulletin? Talk about diversification, a discussion on whole foods, a visit from the Connecticut Audubon Society, an opportunity to attend an AARP Safe Driver Class, a discussion to keep abreast of the Medicare and CT Medicaid features, a Luau Dance, and so much more! Awesome! By the way, the Milford Senior Center Gospel Choir presented a southern style concert, recently, which included a canon and a choral medley. Applause to these talented, dedicated folks! Did you know that Francis Scott Key 1779-1843, the composer of the Star Spangled Banner was born during the month of August? Also, on August 2, 1776, in Philadelphia, most of the 55 members of the Continental Congress signed the parchment copy of the Declaration of Independence. August, a month to remember!
