Our 22nd Annual Holiday Fair will be held Saturday, November 7th at the center and is always a great event. This year’s fair promises to be the best ever and we need you to be a part of it!

If you would like to volunteer in any way, please call Lee Canning at the senior center, 203-389-3430.
This year’s fair will feature hand-crafted items, new and slightly used costume jewelry, cookies, cakes, bread, pies and a great tag sale table.
