News Release for the Week of September 21, 2015

Beatles tribute band, Beatles for Sale, is an award-winning, New England-based group of talented musicians. We are so fortunate to have this amazing musical group at the Enfield Senior Center on Friday, October 23 at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $7 per person including coffee and dessert. They always draw a crowd and are a favorite of Beatles enthusiasts.

Medication Take Back Day is Saturday, September 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Enfield Police Department. Prescription drugs cause the largest percentage of deaths from drug overdosing. Properly disposing of medications keeps medicine out of the hands of someone who might abuse them and also protects the environment. You can bring unwanted medications to the Police Department drug drop box anytime, 24/7, but you may also want to join this National Take Back Day.

Income Tax time is still a few months away. Volunteer preparers are urgently needed to do taxes for older adults through the AARP Tax-Aide program. Training starts in November. If you are interested in helping at the Enfield Senior Center, please sign up at
