ENFIELD SENIOR CENTER
As a focal point for aging services, the Enfield Senior Center provides social, educational, and recreational opportunities to enrich the mind, body and spirit of older adults in an open and accepting atmosphere.
Mask Mandate Instituted
An emergency order mandating the wearing of masks or face coverings in the Town of Enfield was signed on August 16th by Christopher W. Bromson, Town Manager. Effective immediately, everyone must wear a mask or face covering in all municipal buildings regardless of vaccination status. This includes the Senior Center. Going forward, as you visit the Senior Center, please wear your mask at all times. Should you have any questions, please call the Senior Center at 860-763-7425.
Thank you for working with us to keep everyone safe and healthy.

AARP Tax-Aide Program
February 7 – April 18
9:00am – 4:00pm, by appointment only
We will begin taking appointments starting Thursday, January 20 at 9:00am until appointments are full.
IRS-trained AARP volunteers will complete Federal and State tax returns at no charge for seniors aged 50 and older. This free service will run on Mondays only from February 7 – April 18, 2022. The program is intended for the completion of average tax returns that can be completed in 1 hour or less. If you have rental property, or if your return is overly complex, it is advisable to use the services of a paid tax professional.
To enable the volunteers to complete your tax returns more easily, please bring the following paperwork:
• Last years Federal and State tax returns
• All original documents for 2021 taxes
• Town property tax bills for your house and/or auto
• Social Security statements
• Photo ID
• Written Social Security number

Those interested in booking an appointment can call 860-763-7425, 860-272-3550 or visit the front desk during normal business hours. Due to the expected volume of calls, please be patient and keep trying until you reach a staff member.
Note: This service will be contactless. On the date and time of your appointment, you will drop off the required documentation with the volunteers. Participants may wait in the Senior Center while their return is being prepared in case the volunteers have questions, or you can pick up your return later in the day when it is ready.

2022 Trip Update
Back on August 13, 2021 Friendship Tours presented traveling during a COVID World. There was good attendance and interest in day trips. We were excited to start booking trips again. Unfortunately, on August 16 we were notified that due to the increased spread of the COVID virus, we would be required to wear masks inside the Senior Center. After consulting with the North Central District Health Department, we will need to delay the start of organized group trips until the COVID cases begin to decrease. Our primary goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy so the Senior Center can stay open for programs, lunches and socializing at a distance. The travel companies are still operating if you are interested in traveling with them on your own. As soon as we can offer trips in the future, we will resume traveling from the Senior Center.
The following services are available for a free 15-minute consultation between the hours of 10:00 to 11:45 am. Call the Senior Center at 860-763-7425 to schedule an appointment.
