    Wednesday, October 14th from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m- Drive Thru Flu and Pneumonia Clinic

    As a reminder, our drive thru Flu & Pneumonic Clinic will be conducted on Wednesday, October 14th from 10:00 – 12:00 at the Preston Senior Center, 42 Long Society Road.

    Pre-registrations are a must! For individuals who have pre-registered with this office, there will be a red star next to your name on this newsletter. I will be mailing an additional document to those individuals who have pre-registered under separate cover, to review and return to us on clinic day. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Senior Affairs Office at 860-887-5581 ext.6.

    If you have not registered for our clinic but, are interested in participating, please contact the office as soon as possible.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us to think in new and different ways to provide essential services to our community. The drive-thru clinic is our attempt to offer to you, our friends, the continuation of providing the influenza & pneumonic clinic at your local senior center.

    Whether you participate in our clinic or not, we wish you good health and peace of mind during these trying times.

    The Preston Senior Affairs Office has taken on a slightly different way of conducting business.

    Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, face-to-face interaction is temporarily on hold until such time as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has been eliminated. I will continue to accept telephone messages and adjust regular support in completing re-determination forms, SNAP applications, etc. to requesting that you use the US Postal service or the Blue Drop Box located in the front of the Preston Town Hall to deliver your documents to me. Safety is a priority!

    The Blood Pressure Screening conducted monthly at Lincoln Park Housing has been cancelled until further notice.

    New Information about ECTC Program:

    Good news for individuals who currently participate in the ECTC medical transportation grant. There will be an additional 6 round trips granted to this year’s program.
