Please Join Us - Become a Member of the Friends of the Norwell Council on Aging
Who are we?
The friends are a non-profit charitable organization formed for the purpose of providing financial support in the developmennt and maintenance of the senior center, and to provide services to persons in the town sixty years of age and over.
What are some of the things we do?
- Friends underwrite a variety of cultural and arts programs, including the new and exciting Senior Learning Network programs, Art Matters program, Circle of Change and computer courses offered at the Council.
- Friends have recently purchased a web cam, a computer and the software needed for our distance learning program, Senior Learning Network. We not only can see the broadcasts, we are able to interact with the presenters and ask questions because of this new technology. If you haven’t had a chance to take in one of these classes, stop by. You will enjoy it.
- Friends host and fund barbeques and luncheons during the year. This includes our very successful luncheon the Polish Fest and our Veterans luncheon. We also hire entertainment for parties.
- Friends provide postage and prepare the mailing of the bi-monthly newsletter, which gives a calendar of events and articles of interest.
- Friends provide support for anyone who is experiencing unexpected financial crisis in the town of Norwell.
These are just a few ways that we have helped support the needs of the Council this year.
The success of the Council on Aging depends a great deal on the assistance of “Friends” and we urge you, too, to become a “Friend”. We also hope that you will utilize the many opportunities available here at the Council on Aging as detailed in our bi-monthly newsletter and calendar. We look forward to seeing you soon.
