News Release for the Week of September 19, 2016

Welcome back! Fall is a busy time at the Enfield Senior Center. Some people are on vacation and others are busy gardening or golfing over the summer. With the start of our fall classes, the Senior Center is active and dynamic. We are happy to see new faces and excited that so many participants have continued to enjoy the Senior Center activities and classes.

It may seem like you have just started your fall session but registration for November and December classes begins on Tuesday, October 11 at 8:30 a.m. for residents. Nonresident registration begins on Tuesday, October 18 at 8:30 a.m. Look for your October newsletter on Tuesday, September 20. If you do not receive the newsletter in your newspaper or mail, you can always pick one up at the Senior Center.

You can find information about the Senior Center at our website at or follow us on Facebook or Twitter @EnfieldSrCtr. Keep up with the latest events!

Once again, FullKrew is coming to the Senior Center for a rock’n’roll dance party. They are one of our favorite dance bands. When they have been here before the dance floor has been full all night long. Hold Friday, October 14 at 6 p.m. open on your calendar for the FullKrew Dance Party. Tickets are on sale for $7 per person and includes dessert.

There is interest in starting a Senior Hiking Group. If you would like to join a group of senior hikers on some local trails, come to the Senior Center on Thursday, September 29 at 10 a.m. for an initial meeting. At the meeting we will determine where the hikes will be and what day and time. The discussion will also include proper footwear and gear.

There are a few tickets left for Beatles tribute band, Beatles for Sale concert on Friday, September 23, at 6 p.m. The $7 ticket price includes coffee and dessert. It would be a good idea to pick up your tickets in advance because they will not be available at the door if it is a sellout.
