Join us for a special St. Patrick’s Day dance on Friday, March 17 at 2 p.m. The cost is $3 per person at the door and includes a snack and coffee at the break.


Every month we show a TED Talk and every month we have more and more people attending. Join us on Thursday, March 16 at 10:30 for “All it Takes is 10 Mindful Minutes.” No registration is necessary. We watch the TED Talk and discuss it after.


The Senior Center and Allied’s Attic are planning a Fashion Show for Thursday, May 4 at 6 p.m. Allied’s Attic will provide the clothes and accessories. We are looking for volunteer models who will put together an outfit that is both thrifty and attractive. Both men and women models are needed. It will be fun! Sign up in the Senior Center office.


Back by popular demand is the Elton John Tribute Band, Bennie & the Jets. When they were here last, they put on a fantastic show with the excitement of an Elton John concert. Bennie & the Jets are returning on Friday, March 3 at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $7 per person and includes dessert and coffee.


If the Enfield Public Schools are closed because of inclement weather, the Senior Center programs are canceled. If there is a school delay, our schedule goes on as usual. The building remains open, in most cases, for drop-in activities including the Prime Fitness Center. Notification of cancellation is posted on WFSB, Twitter and Facebook. Always feel free to give us a call to check the closing status.
