Friends of the Council on Aging

The Friends of the COA usually meet the 1st Thursday of each month at 3:00 pm in the Center Meeting Room at Town Hall. Our Friends provide much-needed funding for programs and events not covered in the COA’s annual town budget. Support has included: Speakers, performers, exercise supplies, summer BBQs, kitchen supplies, refreshments for events like Volunteer Appreciation Day, Older Americans Day, summer BBQs, Game Day, Market Basket gift certificates and more. The Friends have sponsored fundraisers, in the past, such as a Plant Sale, High Tea, and Town Wide Yard Sale

Ecosmith Recycling for the COA ...

Please check out the new recycle bin in the parking lot behind the police station (close to the entrance to River Pines)! The purpose of the textile recycling bin is to collect clothing, towels, blankets, stuffed animals, curtains, shoes, purses and rags. All textiles are acceptable -- even if ripped and/or stained cloth!

  • Important ... PLEASE use a plastic bag to deposit textiles.  
  • Make sure the materials are DRY. (Wet materials will create mold and mildew and the whole container load will have to be trashed.)
  • NOTE: NO furniture, books, TVs (electronics) or papers.

Thank you for your willingness to help!
