Senior Center News: Dec. 8

Firefighters host luncheon

On Wednesday, Dec. 14, at noon, the Wilton Career Fire Fighters Local 2233 will serve a turkey dinner with all the trimmings at an Ogden House luncheon. This wonderful tradition began in 1985 as a way for the firefighters to thank seniors for their years of support. Volunteers from the Wilton Woman’s Club will prepare the meal, compliments of the firefighters. Guests are encouraged to come early to socialize. The Middlebrook Singers and Flute Choir will provide entertainment. Middlebrook’s Student Council members will treat the participants to homemade delights. Reservations: 203-834-6240.

A gift that’s the perfect fit

Although you love the holidays, you probably don’t need any more stuff! You have all the scarves, mittens, and personalized coffee mugs you can use.

A Stay at Home in Wilton gift certificate is a gift you can open 365 days of the year. You may find yourself suddenly needing a ride and not wanting to impose on family or friends. How about that leaky faucet or sagging curtain rod? Stay at Home in Wilton is ready to assist. In addition, there are many wonderful events you won’t want to miss. An annual membership is $360 for a single and $480 for a couple. It’s a great gift to give or receive.

For holiday gift certificates, call Janet Johnson, executive coordinator, at 203-762-2600 by Monday, Dec. 19, for guaranteed delivery.
