Hello October!

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the sold out Polish Night at the Senior Center! It was a fun, successful event filled with great entertainment by Paul Kulas and delicious food donated from Suffield Village Market. There was plenty of pierogis, kielbasa, sauerkraut, rye bread, and desserts to go around; all of which was cooked by our amazing staff and served by volunteers. A special thank you to Gayle Demko for her donation for the night, also.

The Parks and Recreation debuted their first podcast featuring Certified Athletic Trainer, Joseph Hicks who shared information regarding the exercise programs at the Senior Center, including the Active and Fit class. I’ve already had some great feedback from seniors that either listened to or watched the podcast video. This podcast is available to watch or listen on the at Suffield Parks & Recreation YouTube page.

The open enrollment period for Medicare Part D prescription drug plans & Medicare Advantage Plans is October 15th through December 7th. Please check out one of the information workshops hosted by Stateline Senior Services and make an appointment with our trained CHOICES Counselor, Sheri Burger.
