People receive their newsletter in a variety of ways: mailed to their home, delivered by a volunteer, notified through on-line subscription, 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. We have suspended the usual 'registration date' but our most popular classes will still have a sign up date, or in some cases, a lottery to allocate spaces. All details are in the newsletter.
As we move into Fall we are having almost all classes, groups and programs in-person. Follow the instructions in the newsletter regarding registration. For those classes still on zoom, please email the senior center with your request, firstname.lastname@example.org. This way we have a valid email to send the zoom link to. You will be sent a confirmation email on receipt of your request. We can not accept registration requests online. Registration is required for all drive thru lunches which you can call to do, 978-929-6652. Please be aware that we will continue to follow CDC guidelines which may result in changes to our advertised programming.
*NEW FOR FALL* While we are continuing to have some of our programs on Zoom we are now offering the opportunity to you to watch the presentation in the more social setting of the Senior Center. You can still watch at home if you prefer. Check the newsletter for specific details.
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.
