Senior Center Update:

Happy February, the month of Love! Fingers crossed that within a few weeks, COVID numbers will subside and we can again begin to resume a more normal routine. However, with the COVID numbers as high as they are right now, Senior Center staff felt it safe and prudent to make some adjustments to our programming. First and foremost, we want people to know that we are committed to staying open to provide socialization, support and essential services, and that we are available. That said, we have had to make some difficult decisions over the past few weeks. The UConn Tailgate Party scheduled for 2/6 has been cancelled; and we have suspended the use of volunteers for medical transportation and Recreational Day Trips throughout the month of February. Instead, transportation to medical appointments will be available, but will be provided in our van with Dave. Shopping Runs will also still be available each month.  Mansfield Seniors can arrange for these services by contacting Outreach Coordinator Yamil Figueroa at 860-487-9875 or figueroay@mansfieldct.org.

 For all in-person events and activities aside from TVCCA Congregate Lunches, masking in the Center will be strictly enforced, there will be no food or drinks allowed, and participants will be asked to social distance. We will continue to evaluate programming on a week to week basis, and we will communicate any immediate changes via phone calls, email and our Facebook page. As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions, and can be reached at the Center Monday-Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm.

We still have a number of fun events planned, and we do hope you’ll join us this month! Learn the story behind St. Valentine’s Day with History for Fun on February 4th, attend an informational presentation on CT Legal Services on February 9th, or pick up a delicious hot meal at our Drive-Thru Fresh Fridays on February 11th and 25th! Catch a classic movie on the 15th, or screen & discuss the award-winning Strangers in Good Company, which has been called one of the “most exhilarating films” ever made about aging and relationships. Despite the cold creeping in around us, we hope these events will help to warm your soul!  

And so, we move forward into 2022 with open minds, open hearts and patience. Please stay safe, be smart, and know that we are here for you. We hope to see you soon!
