BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The Bellows Falls Area Senior Center is hosting an AARP Driver Safety Course Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions, and the roads we travel every day. Some drivers have never looked back since they got their first driver’s licenses, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills. By taking a driver safety course, they will learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate their vehicles more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. Lunch will be available for purchase at the senior center or you can bring your own. Space for this course is limited.
The next trip to MGM Springfield will be Thursday, Nov. 13. The van leaves at 9 a.m.
Join us Wednesday, Nov. 20 for “Name That Tune!” at 11 a.m.
Our Holiday Bazaar will be held Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We also have a very exciting raffle coming up just in time for the holidays. Our Knit & Stitch group has put together an amazing doll set for one lucky winner. Tickets can be purchased at the senior center. The winner will be drawn Dec. 7 at the bazaar. The doll will be displayed at the Village Booksellers in the Square if you would like to check it out in person.
The Gad About Gals will be meeting at Black Rock Steakhouse in Springfield Nov. 7 for lunch at 11:30 a.m.
