Happy New Year! The staff of the Enfield Senior Center and I send out best wishes for a wonderful 2015.

To end the year on a peaceful and educational “note,” join us at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, December 31 for The Music of the Harp. Harp student, Aaron Light, will perform medieval and traditional Christmas music on the harp.
