National Senior Center Month: ‘Autumn on the Dock’

September is National Senior Center Month and the Estuary Council of Seniors, Inc. (ECSI) is celebrating.  They have recently opened their doors to all residents in the nine-town estuary region who are aged 50 and older. 

“Baby Boomers”, who probably don’t feel like seniors, can take advantage of the activities, trips, and diverse programs in the community, mostly free of charge.  They can shoot pool, have a cooked-to-order breakfast six days a week, join an exercise group, the painting class, play ping pong, Wii bowling, join the book chats and many other activities.  Most of the programs are free of charge or just a suggested donation.

September is also the time when the Estuary Council of Seniors hold their signature event, “Autumn on the Dock,” at the Dock & Dine restaurant in Old Saybrook – it will take place on Sept. 26 from 5 to 8 p.m.  The evening will include live and silent auctions, wine tasting  and hors d’oeuvres, and will benefit the Meals on Wheels and Senior Nutrition Programs. 

The Estuary Council of Seniors is the sole provider of meals on wheels to homebound seniors in the nine-town estuary region and Madison.  Last year they delivered more than 64,000 meals.

ECSI is generously supported by the following sponsors: Lenny & Joe’s Fish Tale, Middlesex Hospital, J.H.Cohn, LLC, Essex Savings Bank, Gentiva Homecare, Lawrence & Memorial Hospital, The Wine Cask, Guilford Savings Bank, SafetyZone, Underwater Construction, Shoreline Quick Lube, Essex Meadows, Roberts Physical Therapy, Middlesex Hospital Homecare, Reid & Reige, P.C.

Tickets for the event are $40.
