Vote for the Center
Since 1998, the Castleton Community Center (The Old Homestead) has provided programs and services to help improve the quality of life for residents of western Rutland County. The Center helps seniors and disabled residents remain independent. Over 4,800 rides were given last year for doctor’s appointments, nursing home visits, adult day care, therapy, food shopping and senior meals. In addition, over 1,400 meals were served in our dining room to seniors from Castleton, Fair Haven, Hubbardton and surrounding towns.
The Center offers health and fitness education, a walking trail and exercise programs to promote healthy living. Educational and recreational activities keep our seniors active and help improve the quality of life for them and their families. Our summer camp for children provides stimulating educational and recreational activities for children when school is not in session.
The Castleton Community Center does not receive United Way funding. The Center is supported through town appropriations, grants, fund raising special events and the hard work of our members and volunteers.
Castleton, Hubbardton and Fair Haven residents, please vote yes to support the valuable programs and services offered by the Castleton Community Center at the polls Tuesday, March 4. If you need a ride to the polls call The Center at 468-3093.
