Please Refer to the "Meals" and "Transportation" links on the left side of this page for detailed information. All regular groups and programs, will be updated as information becomes available with "Zoom" meeting links and other virtual meeting and game options. 

The Northfield Senior Center follows the local school closing schedule and will be closed, in cooperation with Governor Baker's order, through May 4th. Van service will continue to provide medical rides and grocery shopping only. The Council on Aging volunteers and staff will conduct daily "check in calls" to our most vulnerable and isolated patrons. If you would like to be added to the call list, please leave a message at 413-498-2901x114 or email Becky Sommer-Petersen at Thank you for your understanding during this difficult period and please follow health guidelines for social distancing, handwashing and general safe practices during cold and flu season. We hope to see you all when we will be back "on line" with regular programming. 

The Northfield Senior Center is overseen by the Northfield Council on Aging. It is the home base for Senior activities, congregate meals, programs, outreach, information, and referrals. It is located on the ground level of Town Hall and is handicapped accessible from the parking lot in the rear of the building.

The Northfield Senior Center is a place for Northfield seniors and those in surrounding communities to come together to enjoy camaraderie and support through social interaction with others. We enjoy many programs on a weekly and monthly basis including; activities, meals, music, day trips, workshops, informational presentations and community events. Most programs are free-or ask only a nominal suggested donation of a few dollars. Everyone is welcome regardless of income. See our calendar of events page for upcoming programs.
