The Bigelow Center will begin a gradual reopening on July 12.  We are excited about welcoming you back into the building; gradually and with caution. The most important consideration in the process will be the health and safety of participants and staff; it is our priority and our responsibility. In order to reopen, we will abide by state guidelines for senior centers and per the guidelines of the Town of Fairfield. Although it won’t be the same senior center you left in March 2020, we are excited to offer opportunities for you all to see each other.   Before you decide to stop by or sign up for any in-person programming please read the information below.

Can I just stop by the Senior Center any time I want?  Unfortunately, no. Individuals must make an advance reservation to attend a program at the Senior Center.  Example:  If you want to play Bridge or work in the Wood Shop, or play Pool, you must register in advance on MyActiveCenter. If you do not have access to a computer or smart phone, you may call the front desk for help (203-256-3166). Each activity will have maximum attendance limits due to social distancing, the size of the room and the activity.  To find out what programs are being offered, download or stop by the Bigelow Center to pick up our most recent Bigelow Center newsletter.

Lunch in the Dining Room:  At this time the Bigelow Café is closed. As recommended by state guidelines, congregate meals sites should not open at this time. Consider joining us for Lunch on the Lawn every Friday this summer. Registration a week in advance is required (on MyActiveCenter or call if you need assistance). Check back for more information or call the senior center at (203) 256-3166.
