The Windham Seniors, INC. was
established to provide for the social and
recreational needs of Seniors in Windham and adjoining towns. Adjoining
towns provide these services through the Town Governments. We provide
these services with little or no cost to the tax payer by volunteer efforts. The
town provides us with the building, heat, and electricity while we are
responsible for the interior upkeep and cleaning. The Town also provides
money in the recreation budget for senior activities. The building is also in
most evenings by the scouts, the Lions and other non-profit groups with written
permission from the president of the Windham Seniors.
