3 Questions for Senior Center Supervisor Judy Barron: Aug. 15

Judy Barron lets us know what's happening at the North Branford Senior Center.

In addition to the regular questions of 'What's new in your department?' and 'What's something residents should know?,' this week North Branford Patch is already thinking about (sorry kids!) and asks our town officials, including Judy Barron of the , about their favorite subject to study growing up.

North Branford Patch: What’s new in your department?
Barron: Our second summer intern, Xavier High School student Jordan Greenhalgh has planned Band Trivia at the North Branford Senior Center on Friday, August 31 beginning at 10:30 a.m. Come and test your knowledge and maybe learn a little something new! There is still time to sign-up by calling 203-315-6017.

North Branford Patch: What's something residents should know?
Barron: Our facility offers a noontime meal Monday through Friday for only $2! Our onsite cook, Kathy Poston serves up a delicious healthy lunch daily. If you would like to know what is on the menu, you may call the Senior Center at 203-315-6017. We ask if you would like to attend lunch to call in by 9 a.m. that morning to put yourself on our list. Special events may require early sign-up and we would be happy to mail you a complimentary copy of our monthly newsletter so you can see what’s going on!

North Branford Patch: What was your favorite subject in school growing up?
Barron: ART! I consider it a subject! I spent most of my high school days in the art room and use my talent at work and home daily!

Judy, Here are some suggestions for the Seniors: When I was teaching, I invited the Seniors into my classroom to read to my students years ago.They really enjoyed being with the younger generation. Perhaps they can come in, and they discussed the past history of North Branford with the younger students in the Elementary students.They are very good listeners.

Hi Jim! I think this is a fantastic idea and I will be looking into it! Thanks so much, I always welcome suggestions!
