The South Royalton Area Senior Citizen Center (S.R.A.S.C.C.) serves the Towns of Bethel, Royalton, Sharon and Strafford. Many seniors from other towns come regularly to the center for meals and other activities. The Center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays,

There are two meal sites, one in South Strafford at Barrett Hall, serving meals on Wednesdays and one in Royalton at the Royalton Academy Building, serving meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The nutritional program provides one-third of the daily adult nutritional requirement.  The number of seniors at the Royalton meal site keeps increasing and many times there is a “full house”; 11,602 meals were served in the year 2008-2009. We also deliver meals to Senior Citizens at home.

Fundraising goes on every year to help raise money for the services and trips. Some of the fundraiser includes, new this year collecting Shaw’s Receipts for a refund, Center Raffles, Thrift Shop and our Annual Craft Sale that is on the first Saturday of December. Held at the Royalton Academy, in Royalton, Vermont.

In addition to home delivered meals, services offered include transportation to meal sites and blood pressure clinics.  Often a person is available to help seniors with their taxes in April. This past year seniors had the opportunity to go on the following trips:  November 2008 to Indian Head resort in Lincoln, N.H., May 2009 to the Westernairies in Holyoke, Mass, October 2009  a seven day trip to Myrtle Beach, S. C.   The trips are becoming more popular each year.  Another service is the distribution of USDA commodities.

The S.R.A.S.C.C. Board of Directors is composed of three representatives from each of the four participating towns.  We are fortunate to have Susan Huff as our Director for both meal sites and Louise Caron as cook for Royalton and Linda Ducharme as cook for Strafford.
