Brandon Senior Center

1591 Forest Dale Road
Brandon, VT - 05733
The Brandon Senior Center began as a club in the 1930s. It has gone through many transformations with additions built on to the original building, over the years. It was always portrayed as a closed up "hall" and the recent Board of Directors wanted to change that way of thinking. We have created a warm and friendly atmosphere where Meals on Wheels is served, a free community lunch is made and served on Fridays, Bone Builders exercise classes held twice a week, RAVNAH Toe Nail Clinic and WIC clinic is held. We host a dinner once a month sponsored by the various businesses/individuals in town and also a free community brunch, which is sponsored by SW Council on Aging. We now have a comfortable knitters corner, a reading area and folks who come in to play cards or do a jigsaw puzzle. The Center has become a hub of social activity for many, with low cost Bingo twice a month and coffee club gab fests. We have also started up an adult coloring group on Wednesdays. We have folks come in from the towns of Brandon, Forestdale, Sudbury, Leicester, Goshen and East Middlebury. We have taken great care in renovating the outside, as well as the inside of the building. We have painted, added ADA compliant walkways, flower gardens with sitting areas and raised bed vegetable gardens which we plant to use during the summer lunch programs. We have added outside sheds and painted them to match the building. Inside we have painted, purchased furniture, updated the kitchen and we decorate with different themes every month. The many renovations include a new roof, new kitchen floor, updated bathrooms with new floors and paint, new doors, new furnace, new above ground oil tank, and new central AC unit. We have stripped the downstairs and completely renovated the space to be used as a meeting place. All these projects were funded by grants, and fundraising. We hope to continue our work in making the Center a large part of this community...
