Council On Aging Looking for New Members

by Press Release
May 12, 2019

The Holliston Council on Aging (COA) is currently seeking expressions of interest from individuals who would consider being appointed to the Council.  The COA is a 7-member body, appointed by the Selectmen, responsible for policy making and guidance for the Senior Center Director and staff. 

It is charged with identifying and describing the needs of Holliston’s senior population (citizens age 55 or over), advising on formulating programs and providing services to best meet those needs with available resources in a cost-effective manner, and educating the community as to senior needs and the importance of providing adequate resources.

There are, at present, several actual or potential vacancies on the Council.  Potential members should have an interest in advancing senior issues.  We seek individuals with varied backgrounds to bring viewpoints and recommendations for Council action reflective of best practices and community needs for seniors, and willing to be spokespersons for Holliston seniors with all levels of community leadership.

The population served by the Council on Aging constitutes more than 33% of Holliston’s citizens, and 43% of registered voters.  Half of all annual residential real estate tax billings are made to those over 55 who own or control such real estate.  The primary delivery point for services and programs is the Holliston Senior Center, located at 150 Goulding Street. 

The COA meets monthly, usually 9 times a year (no July, August, or January meetings). 

If you are interested or wish to learn more of the Council’s duties and responsibilities, please contact Linda Marshall, Director of the Senior Center at marshall@holliston.k12.ma.us, or Kevin Robert (Bob) Malone, Chair of the Council at Krmalone1@verizon.net

Our monthly meetings are open (of course) and we encourage interested parties to visit with us at one of our meetings.
