penguin 159864 640PVMS Luncheon and Reading Program:
At the request of PVMS, the April school luncheon and Reading program has been cancelled. May 24th will be the last luncheon and reading program scheduled for this school year. Both programs will resume in October.

I ask that you purchase luncheon tickets in advance at the Preston Senior Center on Monday mornings, or on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 1:00 -4:00 p.m. You may also contact the Senior Affairs Office at 860-887-5581 ext. 6 for additional information concerning ticket sales. 

The cost of the luncheon is $4.00 per person. Our meal count is called into the school one week in advance of the luncheon. The staff has been very gracious in accommodating a few walk-ins but, there is no guarantee that you will be able to participate in the luncheon, if you don't register for the program.
