Memory loss is not something you just have to accept. Come and learn about a variety of ways to improve your memory with Bay Path Occupational Therapy students.

Allied’s Attic brought a van to the Senior Center last week and we filled it up with donations. They will bring the van back to the Senior Center parking lot on Wednesday, February 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Drop off your old clothes, coats, scarves, gift items…anything really. This is a great opportunity to de-clutter. And it couldn’t be easier.
