Friends of Bourne

Council On Aging




The Friends of Bourne Council on Aging, Inc. is a 501c3 non profit organization which was formed in 1979 to enhance the services and programs of the Council on Aging. Through fundraising, membership dues and donation, the Friends are instrumental in the continued success and expansion of the Council on Aging.

The Friends organization is governed by a 13 member Board of Directors, who are elected each year at the annual meeting held in June. Directors are all volunteers who are not only involved in the community and have a true sense of the senior community. Board Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at the Senior Center at 2:45 pm. and are open to all Friends members. Minutes of each meeting are available at the request of any member.

Each year, the Friends conduct a membership drive and fund raising events. The Holiday Fair, held each year the Saturday before Thanksgiving, is the principle fund raising event of the Friends. During the year, volunteer groups at the Senior Center, including Crafters, Knitters and Quilters, work to create items for the Fair. By keeping the Fair "in house" all profits benefit senior programs and the Bourne Friends Food Pantry.

The financial support of the Friends organization is responsible for all or part of many programs, including the COA transportation program, the Supportive Adult Day Program "Bridging The Years", the publication of the monthly Newsletter, the Bourne Friends Food Pantry, social trips and many activities and program provided at the Senior Center.

Membership in the Friends is open to everyone of all ages. Annual dues are $5.00 per person for Bourne residents and $7.00 per person for non-residents. All members are sent a copy of the Newsletter on a monthly basis. Anyone wishing to join may do so by contacting the Bourne Senior Center at 508-759-0653 or by sending their name, address and annual dues to the Friends of Bourne Council on Aging, 239 Main Street, Buzzards Bay, MA 02532.
