Outreach Education

It Takes a Village to Love its Seniors

The Waterbury Senior Center and our Outreach Education Committee, which includes Jane Willard, Skip Flanders, Margo Sayah, and Grace Sweet together had planed programs to follow the noon meal at the

Senior Center.   We got this far before Covid-19 hit.

January 17th  DVD of the train art on the railroad bridge

February 14th  Slides and talk about the Mount Mansfield Electric Railroad

March 13th  Sharing family artifacts  

The Senior Center is now closed  --  we will let you know when they reopen.

In the meantime the Outreach Education Committee is providing 80 small gifts that will be delivered

with Meals on Wheels lunches each week.  The first week included a mystery photo of the 1927

Waterbury Flood Thanksgiving.  The answer arrived in the next week's meal.  Some of the gifts we have

received already include 80 Thanksgiving cards from Margo Sayah, 80 "A Vermont Christmas Tree" 

booklet from WDEV, 80 "Waterbury The Other Love of My Life" written by Kevin Eurich, Christmas Carol 

Quizzes prepared by Sue Johansen, 80 tea bags, 80 handmade ornaments, 80 Notecards by Alix (Art by

Milano cookies and a few Hershey's kisses.  We also received 100 disposable masks courtesy of the

Rossi Family foundation and Waterbury Rotary.  Many small gifts have been given and will be put 

together to make 80 gifts.  If you need more information or wish to  participate please contact
