    Thank you- Pet Wellness Clinic – CT Humane Society

    A very big thank you to the CT Humane Society who recently held a free Pet Wellness Clinic at the Senior Center!  This clinic provided much needed help to seniors who may not have had the access to veterinary care for their beloved pets due to financial reasons.  36 pets were able to be seen during this clinic.  Thank you so much!

    2018 Membership Renewal Time

    A Message from Mike: Once again it is Membership Renewal time!

    Yearly Membership runs from July 1st – June 30th

    Norwich Residents: Suggested $25.00 per year     Out-of-Town Membership: $40.00 per year 

    I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to make sure they do the following:

    1. Make sure you are a registered Member of the Senior Center if you are taking part in any activities. This includes using our Hairdresser, Massage Therapy, transportation, all classes and programs.
    2. If you are registered, please update your information (address, phone number, emergency contact, etc.) with your Membership renewal or as it changes throughout the year.
    3. Obtain a SCAN CARD, if you don’t already have one. PLEASE USE IT.  If you are unsure how to use it, see a staff member and we will gladly show you.  The statistics are very vital to maintain what we offer by showing usage of our classes, programs and services.

    Thank you and have a great summer!


    Content by Judy – Living vs Existing

    We get up each morning. Begin our routine. Bathroom. Coffee. Read the paper. Watch the news. Shower. Dress. And so, the day begins.

    In those moments are you living or existing? Me at that point I’m existing. Getting going in the morning is a real chore for me. I’m not a bright bubbly person at the start of the day.

    Soon I’m living! I’m doing a job I love. Enjoying my husband and our beagle. Interacting with others. Planning what’s next. Enjoying the grass getting green, the beginning of leaves and flowers. Spotting my first Hummingbird of the year!

    I hope all of you are LIVING as well!

    Break your routines! The same old thing is boring!

    Do something new and out of your ordinary.

    Be the best you can be.

    Let assist you in your “out of the ordinary” journey.




    Invite others.

    Start doing!

    Don’t ponder. Stop all that thinking and all those what ifs.
