Girl Scout Pen Pal

Were you a Girl Scout growing up? Do you remember the feeling of earning a new badge? You can help a Girl Scout in your area have that same feeling!

The Senior Center is partnering with a local Girl Scout Troop for a Pen Pal Program! You will be paired up with a Girl Scout to exchange letters in the mail. To register for this program please call the Senior Center at 860-763-7425 or email us at seniorcenter@enfield.org. 


Occupational Therapy Telehealth Sessions

We are working with Bay Path University’s Occupational Therapy students to create telehealth sessions in a group format and individual, if preferred. These sessions can happen through Zoom, Facebook Live, your Public Access Channel, or over the phone. Some of the topics discussed in these sessions will be gardening, physical exercise, total body stretching, stress relief techniques, leisure pursuits, nutritional education, healthy snack preparation, hand strengthening activities, and cardio drumming.
