Chatham Council on Aging: A "Center Of Activity"

by Katharine Dalton

Take a ride up Stony Hill Road in Chatham – if you're not familiar with it, it runs from Crowell Road to Orleans Road – and you'll find a large building on the left-hand side painted white with blue shutters.

This is the Chatham Senior Center, home of the Council on Aging (COA). The building exudes a feeling of calm solidity but inside is a scene of much activity.

I've been working at the COA since November 22, 2002 (my mother's birthday). My responsibilities are to produce the Flash, our monthly newsletter, and work as a receptionist each afternoon.
