The Friends of the Mattapoisett Council on Aging held their annual Christmas Luncheon at the Mattapoisett Knights of Columbus Hall. Many thanks, from those who attended, to MAC’s for the meat pie luncheon that was served. The guests raved about the food. Members of the Mattapoisett Fire Department gave a talk and slideshow on fire safety and fielded many questions from the luncheon guests. Thanks to Fire Chief Andy Murray and his team – Justin and Cindy. The Fire department was presented with two large baskets of toys, collected from our members and seniors to distribute to children in Mattapoisett. During the luncheon, Rick LeBlanc entertained with wonderful holiday music.
We would like to thank Michael Gagne, our Town Administrator, Melody, and Chris, for allowing us to sell items at Town Hall to support our events. All monies raised go to providing events and items for our seniors.
The Board of the Friends of the COA is made up of devoted members who strive to enhance the lives of seniors with items to improve the COA area, as well as scheduled activities and events. They achieve this through their fundraisers and the sale of a miscellaneous selection of gift items. Younger members are always welcome to join us and gain more insight regarding the importance of what the Friends provide to the senior community.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All, from the Friends.
