Above: Tina Bemis offered Drive Thru Grab and Go Porch Pot Kits at local senior centers earlier this summer. She’ll be back in Southborough with fall and winter pot kits next month, in one of multiple “Drive Through” programs planned for Friends of Council on Aging members in September and October.

The Southborough Senior Center will host more “Drive Through” programs this month and next. Unfortunately, they are limited to current members of the Friends of Council on Aging.*

Programs are already filling up. So seniors who are members are encouraged to act quickly to sign up to pick up meals and/or a floral design program. One event even includes a drive-thru party!

Earlier this summer, the Community Advocate covered the fun being hosted by the Senior Center:

To register for new programs, call 508-229-4453. (Registered participants are asked to send in payments to the Senior Center by check prior to the programs.) The Senior Center’s hours are Monday – Friday
8:30 am – 3:00 pm. (If you don’t get someone live, you can leave a message and they’ll get back to you.)

Since the events require picking up materials outside, they may be postponed by rain. (If that happens, the center will contact registered participants.)

Below are the details. Times refer to the window for pickup:

There was one additional program advertised for cupcakes – but that took place earlier today.
