Congregate Meal Program

Mission Statement: The Orange Senior Center provides activities that promote independence, creativity, physical and emotional health, and lifelong learning for residents over the age of 55.

Due to the Covid-19 Senior Center activities are suspended until further notice. Community Services staff are working and can be reached by phone at 203-891-4788.

AARP canceled all programs through the end of the year. For those interested in the AARP Smart Driver online course, their is an online class. AARP is offering a special 25% off discount through the remainder of the year. Visit the AARP Driver Safety website, www.aarpdriversafety.org and enter the promo code “DRIVINGSKILLS”. This discount is good until the December 31, 2020.

Many people have relied on the Senior Center’s AARP Tax Help Program. The AARP Tax Volunteers will not be returning this year. However I found that the AARP Foundation is offering online tax help
