299 Elm Street, Enfield,
News Release for the Week of
February 13, 2017
We are one step closer to our third National
Senior Center Accreditation. On Thursday, February 23, one peer reviewer will
be on-site, taking a tour, talking with participants and meeting with various
groups. The other peer reviewer will be off-site reviewing all of the documents
related to nine standards that we had assembled for almost a year. This
thorough evaluation is all a part of the National Council on Aging constituent
unit, National Institute of Senior Centers’ accreditation process. Very few
senior centers choose to go through this rigorous process. Only 8 in
Connecticut are accredited. We are proud that we have accomplished this twice
before and look forward to the peer reviewer’s visit.
Key Initiatives to Early Education, or KITE,
is sponsoring a one-day experience to bring the community together to reflect,
engage, and practice skills to effectively talk with each other and create
common language about race and equity. Older adults in the community are
invited to be a part of the conversation on Friday, February 17 from 8:30 a.m.
to 3 p.m. at Fermi Cafeteria. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. To
RSVP call Ashley at 860-253-6502.
Because of the weather, the very popular Genealogy class will be changed. On
February 16 from 2 to 3 p.m., the class will be DNA & Your Family Tree. The
final class in the series will be held on March 16 from 2 to 3 p.m. and the
topic will be Using Online Genealogy Resources.
Back by popular demand is the Elton John
Tribute Band, Bennie & the Jets.
