Colonie Senior News


Colonie Senior Service Centers Inc. is planning a trip for anyone aged 55 or older to two museums:  the Clark Museum and Williamstown Museum of Art. The tour is on Friday, Nov. 15, and leaves from the Beltrone Living Center at 9 a.m.

The Williamstown College Museum of Art is the first stop, and those in the group will leisurely explore the galleries on their own. This museum holds early American artifacts; portraiture, both classic and modern art; and more in its 15,000-piece collection.

Next, the group will travel the short distance to the Clark Art Institute for a guided tour. The Clark is known for its extensive collection of both historical artifacts and modern art.

The tour returns to The Beltrone at approximately 2 p.m. and includes a boxed lunch. This event is part of Colonie Senior Service Center’s new program, called The Center at CSSC.

The Center is a place for individuals 55 years of age or older to learn, to grow, to exercise, and to be creative. Through offerings in categories such as Fitness Opportunities, Creative Pursuits, and Travel Experiences, members of the community will have the opportunity to be active in a trusted place.

Membership is $20 per year, and anyone joining now will receive November and December free. The cost of the museum trip is $75 for members and $90 for not-yet-members.

For more information on this event, or others being offered at The Center, contact Caroline Barrett, Lifelong Wellness director, at 518-459-2857, ext. 327 or email .
