Georgetown COA thanks Crosby's Marketplace


Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

With summer in full swing and fall schedules soon to return, the Georgetown Council on Aging (COA) wishes to thank Crosby’s Marketplace for their continued support and sponsorship of the COA’s monthly Men’s Breakfast program.

The continued sponsorship provided by Crosby’s Marketplace has allowed the Georgetown COA’s Men’s Breakfast program to grow with additional participants joining the program each month. In the past fiscal year, the program served a total of 176 men, which is a trend that has continued for the past several years.

Along with a nutritious home-cooked breakfast, the program offers participants an important opportunity to socialize and to enjoy each other’s company. Speakers are planned each month and topics range from health and wellness, to Medicare, retirement, current events, town government, home and personal safety, and local history.

In the spirit of community, the sponsorship of the Georgetown COA’s Men’s Breakfast Program by Crosby’s Marketplace has supported the COA in its goal to continue a meaningful program that has a real and positive impact on our participants. On behalf of the Georgetown Council on Aging, I would like to thank Crosby’s Marketplace for their continued support of this valuable program. We invite men in our community to join us for breakfast on the first Thursday of each month, 9:30 a.m., at the Trestle Way Community Building. Extra servings of fun and good company are sure to be on hand!
