Council on Aging Board
The Council on Aging Board (COAB) is a board of volunteers appointed by the Town Manager with the approval of the Board of Selectmen. The COAB's mission is to identify the needs and wishes of seniors in the community, and coordinate, plan and advocate for the services and programs that will meet those needs. They work closely with The Center's Director and staff toward this mission.

The Board meets at 8am on the second Thursday of the month at The Center at Punchard. The meetings are open to all. Members can be reached via email (click on the name below) or by leaving a message at the Center (978 623 8320).
