PEPPPERLL — In 1996 a group of about 10 men and women got together to see how they could help the seniors of Pepperell. And help they did establishing the Friends of Pepperell Seniors.

The nonprofit group throughout the years has been busy promoting the health and well-being of local seniors providing activities each year like cooking dinners at the car show in the summer, providing the corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day dinner gala, supporting the Senior Center with monitory support, paying to clean all the floors and rugs annually, providing services to the seniors and center, and many more.

The membership has grown to over 100 members and new members are always welcome. Membership is open to anyone, regardless of age. They meet at 12:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month at the Albert Harris/ Pepperell Senior Center 37 Nashua Road in Pepperell.

On March 3, 1997, the Friends of the Pepperell Seniors was officially formed as a nonprofit corporation.

If you would like to contribute to their helping seniors, please send you tax-deductible donation to Friends of the Pepperell Seniors, Inc.

If you are a senior or know of one who would enjoy any of the daily activities at the Center, stop by, enjoy a hot lunch which is served daily, and explore the activities available and make it “your home away from home.”icture by Joanna Reagan Pictured: Founding Members: Pat Wallace, Donna Allen, Ollie Giangregorio
