"It would be hard to imagine my life without the senior center. It is the hub and community for the town’s elders to be less isolated."
When you want to stay healthy and active, where do you turn? If you’re like more than 1,500 other older adults in the Central Vermont community, you turn to the Montpelier Senior Activity Center.
Your contributions to MSAC have helped make us the leading regional community center for older adults. We are so grateful to you for helping to create and support our vibrant center.
“I would not make it without the meals. I cannot cook or shop anymore and I live alone. I think “FEAST at Home: meals area amazing; the delivery people are so kind and friendly… I think the meals are delicious - I really need them. I am so grateful!” - Linda, a recipient of MSAC’s “FEAST at Home” Senior Meal Program
During the Covid-19 pandemic, maintaining FEAST senior meals has been MSAC’s top priority, but it’s just one of the efforts we’re supporting to keep our community’s vulnerable older adults safe and healthy. Though we’ve had to close our doors for the time being, we are busy making plans to adapt for a safe re-opening eventually and modified services and programs in the shorter term.
Read what more participants said about MSAC in last year’s Annual Survey:
"Vibrant place for seniors, with such amazing volunteers. When I was young, I didn’t imagine a senior center being this lively. So wonderful!"
"It’s a really awesome community resource with a lot of participation by interesting and active members. I like that it accommodates a range of ages."
"MSAC has helped me create a new life for myself following the loss of my partner. It has helped me meet new friends and stay busy with fun and healthy activities and meals. It is an enormous asset to Montpelier and the surrounding towns."
"Thanks, especially for the scholarships, without which I could not afford to take a single class, much less three!"
"I am astonished at the quality of the instructors for exercise and art classes I attend. I can’t get away much because I work and care for elderly parents, but the short MSAC trips are perfect mini-vacations."
