At the Sudbury Town Hall, 322 Concord Road, Sudbury.

Just a few years ago, the Sudbury Senior Center was located in the parsonage of a local church. Its space and offerings were minimal. From those humble beginnings, the Center has evolved into the dynamic institution of today — one that offers opportunities for lifelong learning, resources for health maintenance and education, travel, entertainment, and more, much more. The story of this evolution is a fascinating one. It involves dedicated volunteers with a vision and also local politics.

The program will be led by former Sudbury Senior enter Director Ruth Griesel and current Director Debra Galloway with additional information provided by past and present Council on Aging members.

Free for SHS members. A donation of $5 is appreciated from nonmembers. Refreshments will follow.

The Sudbury Historical Society is in the midst of its most ambitious project to date, creating the Sudbury History Center & Museum at the circa 1730 Loring Parsonage in the Town Center.

Stabilization of the existing building is now complete (you may have noticed the some of the building's post and beam frame exposed while it was being stabilized). Next we'll be reconstructing the interior of the building and expanding the ell on the east side of the building. After that we can move in!
