At the center, there are opportunities to participate in bridge, painting classes, drama club, a singing group, the tambourine ensemble, exercise classes and various special interest conversation groups.
Stretch & Flex Class
Opportunities to stretch the mind include films, book discussions, lectures on subjects of special interest to seniors, classes on opera, world events and other subjects as interest dictates.
Gala afternoons with talented entertainers followed by coffee, tea and a delicious buffet of sweets provide fund and stimulation for everyone.
Seniors enjoy the entertainment at a recent luncheon.
In addition to the above, trips are planned for destinations both near and far. The COA van is used for the "Lunch Bunch" to travel to a different restaurant each month; to special exhibitions at various museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art and other special local events throughout the year.

Longer trips are booked with tour companies using a large coach bus to travel to Vermont (Green Mountain train ride), Rhode Island (Johnson and Wales Inn) and New Hampshire (Wright Museum) just to name a few.
Local students held a car wash to benefit to Concord Friends of the Aging. Even the Fire Department got in the act.
The volunteers at our gift shop, Harvey's Treasure Chest held a Mother's Day sale for the students in The Carousel Preschool. The kids enjoyed buying specials gifts for their Moms. Everything at the sale was $1 and was wrapped for each child. This is a yearly event.
