The Gardner Council on Aging's mission consists of three core responsibilities. One is to identify the needs of the community's elderly population and to know the resources that are available. Second is to educate the community at large in the needs of seniors. Last is to design, promote and implement needed services for the elderly and to coordinate with existing services for the elderly.

COA Wish List
We are always in need of candy (soft individually wrapped chocolates in particular) to share with our members and guests. We also have a need for yarn and knitting/crochet patterns. If you would like to make a monetary donation in honor/memory of someone, please make checks payable to Gardner COA. Thank you.
WHAT DOES “SWIPE YOUR CARD” MEAN?
The Gardner Senior Center utilizes a computer program
called “MY SENIOR CENTER” and this enables
us to know how many people make use of the center.
By registering as a member (NO FEE INVOLVED) you
receive a scan card which enables you to sign in on
our computer monitor. Swiping your card is not mandatory,
but if you choose to, the senior center may
gain some additional funds/grants based on how
many feet walk through the doors. If you would like
to receive a scan card, see Celeste or Claude in the
first floor office. Please note that no information you
provide is ever shared with anyone.
