The Granby Senior Center has taken its programs online to keep seniors connected during the pandemic. When the Senior Center closed in March, the staff transitioned quickly to Zoom, offering games, informational programs and more.

Because the Senior Center building will not open until after Phase 3 all of the fall programming will be online. Upcoming programs include: Music Bingo, Trivia, the Aging Mastery Program, Tai Ji Quan, History Lessons, A Survey of the Old Testament, Coffee and Conversation with special guests Kelsey Riggs from ESPN and Bob Maxon from NBCConnecticut, a presentation on Bob Steele, Make your own friendship bracelet with Tully Meyer from McLean Home Care and Hospice, World Culture Series on Italy and much more.

Senior Center staff has connected with many members but we are concerned for the seniors who do not have a way to get online or do not know how. The cost of laptops, tablets and internet is prohibitive for some as they are on fixed incomes. We are researching ways to assist those who need help, and continuing to do regular checks with members who are isolated, as well as sending out flyers and information periodically. If you know of a senior that needs assistance, please give the Senior Center a call at 860-844-5350.
