We warmly welcome new members. There are regularly scheduled activities as well as special trips and events every month at the Senior Center. The VNA nurse is available to take blood pressure readings the first Tuesday of every month from 11:30 to noon. The Senior Center offers meals through the Nutrition Program on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The meals are served at noon. Seniors are asked to make a donation of $3.00 per meal and reservations should be made 24 hours prior to the meal by calling Jan Morando at 860-567-7437.

Tuesdays our chorus, the HarwinTONEs, practice from 11a.m. to noon. Additional singers are warmly welcomed. No auditions are required.....just a love of the oldies as well as seasonal and patriotic songs. Bingo games follow lunch on Tuesdays, and new folks are invited to join us. After lunch on Thursdays, we alternate a variety of activities including crafts, games, and cards. The Lions Club generously provided us with funds to purchase round folding tables for these activities. Two Thursday afternoons a month from May through October, the NW CT Transit bus takes a group of seniors someplace special: on scenic rides, miniature golfing, bowling, shopping, blueberry or apple picking, the beach, or for ice cream.

Winsted Senior Center

80 Holabird Ave.
Winsted, CT - 06098
On September 27, 1966, the Reverend Harry Eid met with eight people at the local Methodist church to discuss the formation of a "senior group" for the Town of Winchester. At their second meeting in October of that year, there were twenty-eight people in attendance. In 1974, the State of Connecticut Department on Aging awarded the Town a grant to operate a senior center and the Winsted Senior Center opened at the St. Andrews Lodge Masonic Home on Wheeler Street. Blanche McCarthy was hired by the Town as the first Director. The Center remained at St. Andrews until 1983, when Mrs. McCarthy secured grant monies to purchase and renovate the Garibaldi Hall on the corner of Holabird Avenue and Chestnut Street. In honor of the woman whose efforts secured the new site, the building was named the Blanche McCarthy Winsted Senior Center. In 1998, Blanche McCarthy (now Sewell) retired and Ellen Schroeder was named the second Director. In 2016, Ellen retired, and Jennifer Kelley was named the third Winsted Senior Center Director. Over the years, Winsted Senior Center's mission has evolved to provide educational, recreational, and cultural activities, assistance with medical insurance, health clinics, daily lunches, van transportation, travel opportunities, and intergenerational programs...
