#3) Wilmington Senior Center Reopens Today
Below is a message from Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello, published in the Senior Center’s latest Buzzell Buzz newsletter:
WILMINGTON, MA — These are words that we have looked forward to saying for the last 18 months! We will be opening our doors on the week of July 12, 2021—but with limited activities and some guidelines. This will be a gradual opening, where we are adding activities indoors but are still requiring you to sign up for the activities. We need to do this to have adequate space for all activities. While the restrictions of masks and social distancing have been lifted, the Senior Center will encourage those who have not been vaccinated to wear a mask. In addition, if you have been vaccinated and feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please continue to wear one. This is a time of adjustments and we want to make everyone feel comfortable coming back inside the Buzzell Senior Center.
We will continue to use the outdoor tent, in fact several classes have asked to keep their program outdoors. We will be having our “Grab and Goes” – now once a month throughout the summer months. Remember, feel free to call with any questions or concerns with these new changes. We are extremely excited that we are turning this corner and starting to see everyone again. Thank you for being patient, strong and resilient!
