Sycaway Seniors

Greetings to all seniors belonging to or interested in joining the Sycaway Seniors. Our meetings are on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, at 12:00 noon at the Brunswick Community Center located at 18 Keys Lane. 

We always have a time to meet and great, share in food and fun, usually have a special guest speaker and play 50/050 and Bingo.

On February 6th we will have a guest speaker from the “Alzheimer Awareness Group” to educate us and answer questions. We will not be meeting on the 20th, as it is Washington’s Birthday, but we will meet on the 27th instead. At that time, we will have Salvatore from the Brunswick Fire Department, speaking about safer ways to live as seniors.

In March we have vendors showcasing spring handbags, back packs, etc. There will also be jewelry, (necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings).

In April we will have another visit from “Elvis”. 

Please come out and join us for fun, food and friendship. Visitors are always welcome. If you have any questions please call me, President, Nancy Spring McClosky, 518-279-0847.
