The Town of Stoneham is once again offering eligible senior citizens the opportunity to work for the Town in exchange for a property tax credit of up to $500. You must go to the Tax Assessor's office at town hall first to determine your eligibility. If the assessor's office finds that you are eligible, they will refer you to the Senior Center for the application. Eligible seniors will be matched with a town department and job duties based on their employment experiences and capabilities.
If you are participating in the Veterans Tax Work-Off Program, you are not eligible to participate in the Senior Tax Work-Off Program. Senior veterans may participate in the veterans' program or the seniors' program, but not both.
For more information call Maureen Canova at (781) 438-1157.
Thank you for visiting our web site! Here you will find information on the Senior Center services, programs, and activities, and a variety of resources available throughout our region that enable seniors to live vibrant, active and healthy lives. The Center is housed in a beautiful, historic building, but it is our community of people that make it a truly special place to be.
Join us for lunch, stop by for a game of cards, pool, Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue or Wii. Hone your dancing or singing talents. Meet new friends, and acquaintances. Learn new skills or hobbies. Go out to museums, performances, special events, and meals with friends. Seek assistance with filing taxes, choosing the right insurance, or managing medical issues. Be driven in comfort to the doctors or to the grocery store. And if we don't have what you want, speak up! My door is always open for suggestions, comments, and questions from our seniors, and our community. We are here to serve you, and your input is essential to insure that we are doing just that. Send me an email under the"Contact Us" link, call or stop by to let me know what you think.
I do ask one favor of you. After you have visited and experienced what the Senior Center has to offer, talk us up! Tell your friends and neighbors about our activities and programs. Invite a friend to join you the next time you come. You are our best ambassador, recruiter, and public relations specialist!
See you at the Center!

Even better, every day that you sign in using the computer you can enter again, meaning that every every week you could have as m any as five chances to win!
