I have always been proud to serve on the Town of Amherst Board, especially for my role as the Amherst Senior Center Liaison.  Our community is fortunate to have such a wonderful facility with such a committed staff.

You guys are doing a great job with things. It’s great you’re able to get folks together despite pandemic challenges. 

We were walking at Island Park earlier this week as one of your events broke up and there were a lot of smiles amongst the folks departing. We could certainly see how much they enjoyed the fellowship.

The Health, Safety and Wellness of our community is our main focus and the Amherst Senior Center is always there to work with us and sponsor events and programs our community needs. Independent Health is appreciative of the Amherst Senior Center management, staff and volunteers that work so hard to make this happen each and every day.

The Amherst Center for Senior Services works collaboratively with Meals on Wheels to provide services to the community.  The staff of the Center is always ready to assist in any way to ensure that nutrition needs are being met in Amherst.  I believe this stems from their strong leadership.

I find the Amherst Senior Center staff to be so engaged with their members.  They always strive to provide programming that allows valued activity, excitement and much more to the members.  In short-I love working with the Amherst Senior Center!
