The Tewksbury Council on Aging met on Wednesday at the Senior Center.

Chairperson Lynn Murphy called the meeting to order, and the first item on the agenda was approval of Sept. 19, 2023, meeting minutes. The financial report was also presented and approved.

Highlights for the November calendar were discussed. Monday, Nov. 6 is intake day at the Consignment Boutique. Thursday, Nov. 9 is the Wilmington/Tewksbury Elks Turkey Dinner. Tickets are available at the front desk. Be sure and check out the calendar in the monthly newsletter for other workshops and support group meetings.

Director Jan Conole gave her report on activities happening at the center. Strongwater Farm outings are “getting rave reviews from the participants,” and Conole hopes to find ways to continue to fund the program. Technology sessions were very well attended, and she has applied for grant funding to host more classes.
