The Barre Area Senior Center Board of Directors announces its 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration, set for Saturday, May 19th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m., with a wine-and-cheese social from 5-6 p.m. Our gala is part of our focus this year on “50/50/50”—while marking this historic date—50 years, we hope to bring in 50 new members age 50 and up! Please join us for this very special celebration where the menu will feature baked chicken, pasta primavera (vegetarian option), potatoes, vegetable-in-season, salad, a celebration dessert and fresh fruit. For your convenience, you may make an online payment–just follow the instructions and click on the “Donate To BASC” button and follow the instructions.
Barre Area Senior Center (BASC) formed in 1968 with a small group of volunteers who were looking to socialize and offer opportunities for local seniors. BASC was housed in the historic Wheelock Building until 2014 when it moved to 131 So. Main St., the E.F. Wall Complex. Thanks to the generosity of the Ronald York Estate, BASC was able to hire a director in 2011 and helped to fund the move to a larger and more user-friendly space.
Barre Area Senior Center’s mission is “The Barre Area Senior Center provides access to programs and resources that help older adults live independently and remain active.” The programming continues to increase and number of participants is also growing with our mission as our guiding force. Baby Boomers aging will, in part, determine the continued growth rate. The Senior Center continues to play a vital role in supporting our aging community members.
We are not just a center…we are a community!
