People receive their newsletter in a variety of ways: mailed to their home, delivered by a volunteer, emailed, viewed on the Town website, or picked up at the Senior Center. This means that some seniors receive their newsletter a few days before others. The COA staff has found that having a particular registration date is the fairest method for signing up for classes and programs. When reading the newsletter, you should make note of the registration date for new programs, typically early in the week following your newsletter's arrival in the mail.
Registration is accepted by phone or in person. At this time, we do not accept registrations by email or online. If you are not available on registration day, you may ask a friend or family member to register on your behalf. All that is needed is your name and phone number and of course the classes you'd like to register for.
Acton seniors receive priority for programs, so out-of-town seniors will often be asked to call back after a certain date or be placed on a waiting list, depending on the program. While most of our programs are free to Acton seniors, there is a small charge to folks from outside Acton. Many drop-in activities and informational programs are open to out-of-towners free of charge.
