Season’s Greetings! As the winter season approaches and the holiday season draws near, Suffield’s resources present us with ample opportunities to extend compassion to those in need. This blessing is immeasurable and enables us to spread warmth and kindness to those who may require it. May the spirit of generosity continue to thrive and warm many hearts during this magical time of the year.

With the winter season approaching, please be reminded that opening delays and closing statuses will be shared on WFSB Channel 3 and Facebook. Please follow the Suffield Senior Center Facebook page (@suffieldseniorcenter) to see all the happenings here and around town. A friendly reminder that the Senior Center will be closed the last week of December, Monday, December 25 – Friday, December 29.
