Friends of the Council on Aging

The Friend's of The Manchester Council on Aging is an official organization devoted to the raising of funds in support of Manchester's Council on Aging, which is not allowed, by law, to involve itself in any fundraising.

Traditionally, the Friends of the Council on Aging is a group of energetic volunteers who are interested in making a difference in the lives of the Seniors of Manchester and in the growth of community spirit and cooperation within the town.

The Friends of the Council on Aging are presided over by a Board of Directors, including six officers.  Meetings are held once a month at The Plains Community Room, 4:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
