Tuesday Connections: May 15 – Senior Appreciation Month
We celebrate seniors throughout the month of May. On this Tuesday Connections, a rollicking game will be played based on the senior appreciation theme of Engage at Every Age, which emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities. There will be prizes for all.

Future Tuesday Connections:
- June 19 – To My Dearest. The Civil War Letters of George and Emily Ward. In 1861, Worcester native George Ward left his wife Emily, and their two small children, to go to war. The letters they wrote to each other detail the pain of prolonged separation, the challenges of single parenting and the horrors of the battlefront. Join Lynn McKenney Lydick and Thomas R. Lydick as they share the personal and poignant letters of this Worcester couple.“This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bolton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.”
- August 16th – Senior Cookout. Sponsored by FOBS, the whole community comes together for a great time. Enjoy mouth-watering hamburgers, hotdogs, and kielbasa grilled by Lions Club members, homemade salads provided by Town employees and residents, and ice cream and cookies for dessert. There will be musical entertainment and Bingo too!

Annual membership drive
Friends of the Bolton Seniors did well in its last membership drive. Through generous donations from the Bolton community, FOBS has been able to help with services and programs for Bolton Seniors. Of course many seniors stay active; but others need our help. Please join us in fulfilling our mission by becoming a member.
If you are a senior in need of assistance, our list organizations and agencies can help.
Senior Assistance Fund: FOBS provides funds to Bolton seniors in need for unforeseen or emergency assistance. No one should have to make the decision to sacrifice essentials such as food or medication because of a financial crisis or unforeseen expenses. If you or someone you know is in need, we can help. Lisa D’Eon has the form and can also give you guidance on whether we can help or not.
