PEPPERELL — The Albert Harris Center, formerly known as Pepperell Senior Center, is offering fun new activities this winter, according to an announcement from the Center.
The staff, known for their kindness and benevolence, is the reason why the center is called “Your home away from home”.
Unfortunately no food will be served in January and February this year. Low-cost hot nutritious meals, which are cooked on site, will again be provided daily in March. Coffee and tea will be taken back free of charge.
The Center, located at 37 Nashua Road, is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Exercise programs such as yoga, bone building, exercise, folk dancing, meditation, are offered throughout the week on Zoom or in person for a small fee. Exercise bikes are available for those who want to keep in shape. Games such as Bingo, Horse Racing, Corn Hole, Mahjong, Card Games, Cribbage and Movie Wednesday are also popular. Informative programs are offered throughout the month.
Many services are also available to the public by appointment, such as hearing tests and cleaning of hearing aids, Reiki and blood pressure checks. For those looking for emotional support, there are support groups for bereavement, caregivers and Alzheimer’s disease,
AARP Tax Helpers will be front and center on Wednesday mornings in February, by appointment only, to help low-to-moderate income tax payers, especially those 60 and older. When registering, please collect the documents you will need to complete before your appointment and a form with a list of information you will need for your appointment. The center will use the COVID models that were used last year. Please call the center for a tax appointment at 978-433-0326.
Do you have free time? The center provides opportunities for those who wish to volunteer. Don’t forget that the center is open to everyone, not just the over 60s. Residents of other cities are always welcome.
Come and discover the activities. Newsletters are available at the Al Harris Center and several city businesses or at https://town.pepperell.ma.us/128/2219/Albert-Harris-Center.
