MARLBOROUGH – State Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Marlborough) has announced the return of the in-person 42nd Annual Senior Conference this year for the Middlesex and Worcester District after being held virtually for the past two years.

The senior conference will be held on Thursday, April 20, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School, where it has traditionally been held. 

The senior conference is intended to provide seniors with a day of useful information, entertainment and educational workshops from expert guest speakers on topics including aging well, solo aging, and resources for caregivers and family members. 

Eldridge also provides free breakfast and a free lunch made by the culinary students of Assabet Valley.

“I’m excited to bring the senior conference back to Assabet Valley, in-person with the opportunity to catch up with seniors from throughout the senate district that I represent, and provide seniors with critical information, as well as entertainment, fun, food, and of course raffle prizes, including the big chair from Bouvier Pharmacy of Marlborough,” said Eldridge. “I look forward to hearing the concerns of seniors, discussing state initiatives to better support older residents in Massachusetts and highlighting the work of the Legislature so far this session.” 

Program topics include resources for seniors, yoga, trivia, vendors, speakers from the state legislature and raffle giveaways. There also will be a special music performance by the local Marlborough music group Flashback Band. 

Registration for the 2023 conference is now open. Interested participants can visit and register through the link provided on the webpage.
