The Norwood Senior Center offers a wealth of diverse activities, workshops, and recreation opportunities for the Town’s senior residents. Their resources, classes, trips, and events are too many to include in just one article, but here is just a sampling of what’s going on in the month of March.
Senior Book Club
Love to read and enjoy sharing insights and discussing with other seniors? Why not join in the Senior Center Book Club, run by the Norwood Senior Center Outreach Department? The group meets at 10 a.m., the third Monday of the month and alternate the reading materials between fiction and non-fiction reads. Some of the past and favorite topics include: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Art Forger by B. A.
