    VOICES, Our Monthly Newsletter

    VOICES is the Senior Center’s monthly newsletter.  When ready (approximately the last week of each month), the paper version may be picked up at the Senior Center, senior housing complexes, and a variety of local businesses and medical facilities. You may also choose to have the final newsletter (with inserts, if any), mailed to your home for $8 a year which helps cover postage.

    Each VOICES includes listings of regular services, special programs and a variety of articles on happenings in the Senior Center community. Items may include news on Day-Trips, Mini-Trips, our Sunshine Corner/Birthday Celebration, Library News, Greenhouse updates, Golden Nuggets activities, and “Help Your Neighbor”. We often have guest speakers and/or informational presentations so keep a lookout for those announcements, too. Each issue also includes the weekday Menu for TVCCA lunches held here at the Senior Center.

    Have an idea for something you would like to see in the newsletter? We would love to know about it.
