Medfield seniors flocking to new center

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 30, 2008 08:47 AM


Medfield's $3.1 million investment in a new senior center is already paying dividends, with participation in senior activities rising 70 percent since the facility opened in January, according to director Roberta Lynch.

Lynch said that 342 people participated in one or more senior activities between the time when the center opened on Jan. 7 to July 25, compared with just 201 people during the same period in 2007.

"It truly has become a home away from home for many people who come here," Lynch said.

The town funded the construction of the new center on Ice House Road through debt-exclusion overrides.
