The Castleton Community Seniors extend a sincere thank-you to the residents of Castleton, Fair Haven and Hubbardton who approved the Community Center appropriations for 2012-13.
The Castleton Community Center helps seniors and disabled residents of western Rutland County remain independent. Over 4,500 rides were given last year for doctor’s appointments, adult day care, nursing home visits, therapy, food and household shopping and senior meals. In addition, 1,877 meals were served to seniors from Castleton, Fair Haven, Hubbardton and surrounding towns.
The center walking trail and exercise programs promote healthy living and our Wellness Center features programs designed to promote healthy aging for older adults. Educational and recreational activities help keep our seniors active and improve their quality of life. Our summer camp for children provides a quality educational and recreational activity for local children.
The center is supported through town appropriations, donations, grants and the hard work of our members and volunteers. We are grateful to all who support our mission of service.
