Senior Center Program Suggestions


How to Make a Suggestion:

Do you have a suggestion for a new program at the Senior Center?  We are always welcome to new ideas from Ellington residents.  We want programs to succeed, and in order to do that, we need to make sure there is enough of interest to support it.

For a suggestion to be considered, we require a completed Program Suggestion Form from a minimum of 5 Ellington residents, ages 55+, indicating interest in that program. We will need either a Volunteer Program Leader or instructor to make these programs possible. If you are interested in volunteering, please be sure to indicate that on the Program Suggestion Form. If a program has enough of interest, we will have a meeting to discuss the details, including days and times available.


Program Suggestion Forms can be found in the Information Center or by filling out this printable form.
