Our mission at the Center is to offer opportunities for our seniors to gather and engage in activities that keep them connected with peers, resources and the larger community, so that they are supported and able to maintain their independence.

We want this event on May 6th to be a day to celebrate our Trafton family. Walk will begin and end at the Y Trafton Senior Center on Elm Street, concluding with a luncheon celebration and bluegrass music provided by the Cedar Mountain Boys.

Register for $10 at the Y Trafton Senior Center or YMCA now, or register at the Y Trafton Senior Center the day of the event. Call 457-0080 for more information!
