Norwalk Senior Center

A friend of mine gave me the newsletter from the Norwalk Senior Center, which is a 501(c)(3). They seem to coordinate all the stuff in Norwalk that is there to help seniors, plus they run a vibrant social network with tons of activities. On May 20, they're running "Should I Stay or Should I Move?" and on April 22 at 10:30, they're running "Helping Seniors to Remain in Their Own Homes" Call 847-3115, if you want to attend.
Visit their website and see all that's going on and all their services -- http://www.norwalkseniorcenter.org/

Membership is only $10 per year. To me, it looks absolutely fantastic. I've copied and pasted their mission page. Read on:
