Simsbury-Granby Rotary Club comes to the rescue

Tuesdays and Thursdays are important days at the Granby Senior Center. Those are the days we serve our Community Café Lunch. While many of our diners come for an affordable meal, even more important is the camaraderie and conversation they experience.

The program is primarily funded by the Older Americans Act of 1965 in order to ensure that seniors have an affordable meal option. Unfortunately, the program has run into financial difficulties due to the overwhelming demand. As a result, they have cut back on the number of service days for all their meal sites. For Granby, that means on the first Thursday of every month, they will not provide lunch.

The staff felt it was extremely important to provide two meals a week to the community. In order to prevent a disruption to the routine, they reached out to the Simsbury-Granby Rotary Club who came to the rescue! They have generously offered to fund the program from June through September. On June 6, our participants thoroughly enjoyed a baked potato bar.

Thank you Simsbury-Granby Rotary Club for supporting this effort.
