Helping others remain active & independent

How do you become a member of BASC?

We ask for a small donation of $25 per year which entitles you to many no and low-cost programs, as well as a discount on our bus trips.

BASC partners with other community organizations where you also receive a discount when you are a BASC member, such as Jazzercise and the Rehab Gym in Barre, VT.

Stop in to obtain a membership application, click the link below or call us to have one mailed to you.

Every penny counts!

Barre Area Senior Center appreciates the community’s support to make our program as successful as possible.
