Hello from Holly…

Spotlight: Franklin County

Aging is thriving in all three of the counties we serve. This month, I’d like to highlight some exciting new things happening in Franklin County.

New social dining site for 60+ and adults with disabilities: We are pleased to announce the opening of the newest SeniorsPlus Lunch Plus Café at the Farmington Community Center, 127 Middle Street in Farmington. A hot meal will be available on Mondays (except holidays) from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A suggested donation of $3 is appreciated. Please join us and bring a friend! For more information, contact SeniorsPlus at 795-4010 or toll-free 1-800-427-1241.

New senior center opening in Farmington: Local community partners have joined efforts to open a new senior center on May 1 at the Farmington Community Center, 127 Middle Street. The center will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Mondays (except holidays). Socializing, games, puzzles, and programs will be on the agenda. SeniorsPlus will offer various programs on the first and third Mondays of each month from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Other organizations and residents are encouraged to provide classes and programs on alternate Mondays. On May 15 “My Money Personality” will be presented by Janet Smith of New Ventures Maine. This fun and unique class will identify money management styles and how to become more comfortable managing your money. There is no charge for this class. To register call SeniorsPlus.

Living Well for Better Health workshops offered: A free workshop series for adults with any kind of ongoing health condition will be offered Thursdays through June 1 at Rangeley Family Medicine, 42 Dallas Hill Road, Rangeley. Receive a $10 Hannaford gift card at the end of each completed session. Contact SeniorsPlus to register or for more information.

Save the date: Aging Well Living Well Expo: SeniorsPlus will hold its 10th Aging Well Living Well Expo at Sunday River on Friday, October 6. Mark your calendars now and watch for more information in July.
