Senior Center flooded

Council on Aging director Diane Tynan came to the Senior Center to set up for Sunday bingo but instead found two inches of water on the floor. A burst pipe in one of the bathrooms was the culprit, she said. The carpet was ripped up and had to be replaced, and the senior center was closed all week. Tynan said she expects it to reopen Monday. Meanwhile, a new senior center is being planned on Pleasant Street at the former Knights of Columbus building, acquired by the town last year and approved for renovations this year. The building will feature a 1,200-square-foot multipurpose room, an 860-square-foot fitness area, and a 740-square-foot living room in addition to offices, a game room, a conference room and a kitchen, Tynan said.
