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 use
most evenings by the scouts, the Lions and other non-profit groups with written
permission from the president of the Windham Seniors.

The following is a list of some of the senior activities:

bulletLunch is served on Tuesday and Thursday provided by Rockingham Nutrition. Seniors set the tables, serve the meals and clean the dishes after the meal. Donation for the meal is $2.00.
bulletEvery Tuesday and Thursday after lunch, volunteers run Bingo from l:00pm to
4:00pm. Seniors often play cards in the morning after 10:00am and before l:00pm.
bulletThe last Wednesday of the month is the business meeting at l:00pm. There is a blood
pressure clinic from 12:00pm until all have seen the nurse who represents Rockingham
Visiting Nurses. Also a foot clinic is held on this day, however appointments must be
