TRANSPORTATION

As a rider on the Senior Center transportation, the center provides a low cost ride to medical appointments and shopping for $2.00 a ride.  Due to the time it takes to process the payments, the center is going to a prepay card system.  One can purchase a ten ride card for $20 which will then be punched by the driver when you arrive for your ride.  These cards will be good until all ten rides are punched then you can purchase another card.

We will be transitioning to using only these cards by January 1, 2016.  You have several options for purchasing a card.  When at the senior center, you can purchase a card at the front desk.  You can mail a check for $20 to the center with a note what it is for.  Be sure to put your driver’s license information on the check.  Or you can purchase the card over the phone (860)441-6785  and use a credit card for payment.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please feel free to call Mary Jo at 860-441-6636 or Cindy Morrison at 860-441-6623.

    Avalonia Land Conservancy presentation at 1 pm Monday, June 12th

    MONDAY June 12th at 1pm we have a unique OATS program  in which Avalonia Land Conservancy will discuss and demo their new HIKE & SEEK program.  This will take place in the Groton Senior Center Technology Center.

    Avalonia Hike and Seek encourages exploration of our beautiful preserves by children, families and the general public through a scavenger hunt format. It allows participants to use technology and social media in a simple, positive way to learn about the nature of each preserve, encourage observations, and to interact with others engaged in the same activity. An incentive to leave no child inside!

    As always , please call 860-441-6785 to sign up for this FREE OAT presentation if you plan to join us!
