The White River Council On Aging, also known as the Bugbee Senior Center, (262 North Main Street, White River Jct., VT 05001) is a non-profit agency committed to providing services to older community members and their families. The Center serves residents from Hartford and surrounding towns that include Hartland, Norwich and Thetford. We provide a range of social, transportation, nutrition, enrichment and education programs and activities. All of these programs have the goal of enhancing the health and independence of our older citizens. If you would like more information about these services, I invite you to give us a call at 295-9068, or stop in to see the Center during our hours of operation which are 8:30-4:30, Monday through Friday.
During 2010, our agency provided services to 1001 Hartford residents. These include, but are not limited to the following services:
Residents served meals on site: 283
Residents provided Home Delivered Meals: 83
Residents receiving newsletter: 883
Residents receiving a social service: 235
Residents participating in education/enrichment programs: 307
All told during the last year, our agency served 14,502 meals on site, and delivered another 11,568 meals to folks unable to come to the Center. The total number of meals served increased almost 4,000 over the prior year.
A majority of our services are provided to Hartford residents. Certainly the fact that we are located in White River Junction is a contributing factor in that aspect of our operation. We at the Center, including our Board of Directors are grateful to townspeople for their continued support of our programs.
On a final note, this past year we have seen an increased use of our facility by other non-profit groups from within the town. We continue to be proud of our building and the condition that it has been kept in since it opened almost thirty years ago. It is a community asset that can serve more than just our older folks. Some of our youngest residents continue to meet here weekly, namely the Daisy Girl Scouts, along with other town boards and commissions and non-profit groups.
Thank you again for your support.
