As recommended by the Governor’s office and the Council On Aging, the Bennington Senior Center (upstairs) WILL REMAIN TEMPORARILY CLOSED in an effort to increase community prevention of  COVID-19 infection.  Updates will be posted on the Town of Bennington website (www.benningtonvt.org) and on the outgoing message of the Senior Center phone at (802)442-1052.

The Bennington County Meals On Wheels congregate meal site (downstairs), a.k.a. the Bennington Café, is also temporarily closed.  However, you can pick up a hot / cold meal to take home from 11:30 – 1:00, M-F.  If you would like to have your meals delivered to your home, please call the Bennington County Meals On Wheels office at (802)442-8012, ext. 4.

In the meantime, decrease your risk of infection by following these steps:

  1.  Wash your hands often with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds each time.
  2. If you are not near soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
  3. Stay away from large gatherings of people and avoid “close contact” (defined as within 6 feet)
  4. Skip handshakes, and do not feel bad about explaining why.

The Bennington Senior Center is a place that brings together older adults who want to be engaged in their communities and with their peers. Nationally, more than 10 million Americans take part in activities through the 15,000 centers around the country. Senior centers provide services and activities older adults need to be healthy, happy and as independent as they can be.  At most senior centers, you can have a meal, make friends, get fit, take a class, be creative, get help, have fun, help out and more.

It is the mission of the Bennington Senior Center to engage persons 50+ in the lifelong learning process; promote their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being by providing social, recreational, creative, and cultural programs; and enable active participation in the center and community.
