Monthly Bulletin

November Spotlight * 2019

Dear Members: 

The holiday season is almost upon us and we are getting ready to party at the Maplewood Senior Center!

In order for us to keep giving you what you need/ want, it is very important that we hear from you. Please help us plan for our next steps in our age friendly efforts by completing the SOMA Senior Survey. Copies are available at the senior center, town hall, and also online at

Please mark your calendars:

Friendsgiving: Wednesday, November 20, 11:30AM

Annual Holiday Party: Wednesday, December 18, 11:30AM

Your next senior club meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 13th. As always, it will be held at 10:00AM at the Maplewood Senior Center, 106 Burnett Ave. With the holidays right around the corner, most are cautious of overindulging. With this in mind, your speakers for the day will be Karen Basedow and Lorraine Gibbons from Beth Israel. They will be here to help us navigate through the holidays with just the right amount of indulgence.

             ~ Light refreshment will be served.
