    along with residents in surrounding towns to join us between 10:00 a.m. and

    when we’re faced with inclement weather, cancellation notices may not reach
    everyone in a timely fashion. Should you question whether a distribution will be
    conducted or cancelled, you are encouraged to contact the Preston Senior Center
    at 860-889-0770 on distribution day. Myself or other staff members are usually
