“With great pride on September 14, 1975, the center, named Mansfield Senior Center, held an Open House. Invitations had been sent to political dignitaries and interested persons. There was no way of knowing how successful this venture would be or how many people would attend the opening. To everyone’s delight, some 112 people signed the guest book and it was voted a great success. The room then opened for business and things began to hum!”
And we haven’t stopped humming since! This month, we celebrate our history and our commitment to Seniors in our community. What started as a conversation in 1974 has grown into a bustling Center with a wide variety of social, recreational, educational, and health & wellness programs. More importantly, it’s grown into a place where we all learn, grow, laugh, create and connect with each other.
Join us in celebrating this month, as we honor those who have gone before us and thank all those who continue to support us. Share your favorite Mansfield memory with us, join us for a safe, no contact take-out Anniversary Lunch, stop by for a socially-distanced visit with some cider & donuts, and check out all of our dynamic online programming! Although our building remains closed in this year like none other, we are always here for you and we thank you for making our Center so special.
