Hello Windsor Seniors!
On Monday, June 8, 2020, the LP Wilson Community Center will be open to the public for a variety of administrative functions including Recreation & Leisure Service program registration, Social Services appointments and food distribution and your Senior Services administrative needs (i.e.: enrolling for Dial-a-Ride, picking up equipment from our Lending Closet). Governor Lamont still recommends that those 65+ or who are immunocompromised remain at home as much as possible to avoid the risk of becoming ill.
Unfortunately, at this time, we are still unable to schedule any in-house programs or activities, as the health and safety of our seniors is our number one priority, but we are diligently planning for the time when we are able to do so again.
Staff will be reporting to LP Wilson and we are planning to begin transportation services for medical appointments, grocery shopping and pharmacy pick-ups as soon as possible. We will be providing updates regarding transportation services via email and here on our website.
