Seniors Social

Monthly Events to build community and social connection for area seniors are planned for the third  or fourth Thursday of each month from 1 – 3 pm at the First Congregational Church of Woodstock.  

June 18 will feature a presentation of local interest by The Last Green Valley.

The program will offer opportunities for social interaction, recreation, and interconnection within the community through activities such as games, crafts, informational presentations, and more. The activities are free and open to anyone who wishes to attend, regardless of age, residency, or other affiliation.

The pandemic increased isolation and stress among many in our community, young and old. We are beginning with monthly activities to build community and connect among older adults and plan to offer other events and activities to address the practical need for positive social connection, support and meaningful community for others in the community as well.” commented Rev. Dr. Kevin Downer, pastor.

The church has served as the Monday location for Community Kitchens of Northeast Connecticut for the past eight years, offering free hot meals every week. The meal program provides an important social outlet. This new program seeks to build upon this ministry by offering a variety of daytime social activities. It is hoped that the center will nurture relationships and connections between residents of Woodstock and the surrounding communities.
