North Branford Patch: What's new at the North Branford Senior Center?
Senior Center Supervisor Judy Barron: We have started a Mah-Jong group. The object of Mah-Jong solitaire is to clear the playing area of tiles by matching pairs of tiles. Players can remove only those matching pairs of tiles where each tile has at least one side (left or right) free and no other tiles placed on top. Come learn and have some fun! The group meets at the North Branford Senior Center the first and last Monday of the month at 10:30 a.m.
North Branford Patch: What's something residents should know?
Judy Barron: The North Branford Senior Center does assessments for the Homebound Meal Program. Food deliveries will be free to eligible residents, but donations will be gratefully accepted. Currently the program is looking for more volunteers to help keep the program running smoothly. "We need more cooks, kitchen helpers and delivery drivers," says Alice Lehr, organizer and head of the program. "We are also looking for donations of kitchen staples, food supplies or gift cards." For further information, to volunteer or donate, call Alice Lehr at 203-488-7126.

North Branford Patch: What's your favorite vacation spot?
Judy Barron: I actually enjoy just taking a vacation and being home, maybe just doing some day trips. Any time spent with family is sufficient for me, whether it's away or home.
