Friends of West County Seniors

Serving seniors in the ten west county towns of Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont, 
Colrain, Conway, Hawley, Heath, Plainfield, Rowe, and Shelburne

 The ‘Friends’ sponsor a variety of programs and special events which take seniors 
out of their homes and into their communities where they can reconnect with 
old friends and form new friendships with other seniors. We are working to 
respond to the wants and needs of seniors in each town and neighborhood.
