Jan Vasseur, our Jan’s Exercise instructor, has been with the Enfield Senior Center longer than any of the current staff!

Jan’s beautiful smile, contagious laugh and good humor have brought a lift to all of us. She has now decided to get her exercise by keeping up with an adorable grandson and helping her family. Thank you, Jan for all you have brought to us. You will be missed by students and staff alike. We wish you happy days ahead!
