Supporting the Northbridge Council on Aging

Kitchen Construction Underway!

This last month or so we have seen more activity in our kitchen since the shutdown last March!  The kitchen is completely gutted thanks to Ken LaChapelle and volunteers from the high school.  The cabinets have been delivered and will be installed once the flooring is in. Flooring and countertops have all been ordered and should be here within the next 2 - 4 weeks.  
Coordinating all that needs to be done has been a large task, but in the end, will be worth it!!  In our new kitchen we will be proud to sponsor fund raisers such as spaghetti suppers and classes like bread making or cooking with an air fryer.  The possibilities will be endless!  We cannot wait until it's done!!

We've Changed Our Name!

We have officially changed our name to:

Plummer Place, 

Home of the Northbridge Senior Center

This has been a long time in the making and we feel we have made the right choice. As many of you know, our Senior Center is located in the former Plummer School which served town from 1921-1982. Shortly after the school closed, with funding from the town, grants, and assistance from FINE, students from Blackstone Valley Tech renovated the building and in 1985 it became the new Senior Center. For more background about the name change decision, please read our newsletter here


Our New Patio

Our brand new patio is up and running! Our hope is that this new outdoor space will add options for more outdoor activities.Maybe a place to have lunch with a friend on a Sunday afternoon, play some bingo, listen to live music, and more! We would like to thank Unilock in Uxbridge for donating the patio blocks, and Scott's Landscaping in Hopkinton for installing this beautiful new feature at our Center. Check back soon for event updates!

Compassion is Our Passion
 

What life means to us is determined, not so much by what life brings to us as by the attitude we bring to life; not so much by what happens to us as by our reaction to what happens.  Lewis E. Dunnington

Three keys to abundant living:

Caring for others, daring for others, sharing with others.  Willard A. Ward
