Become a Friend of the Cheshire Council on Aging!


The Friends of the Cheshire Council on Aging provide financial and other support serving the needs of the senior population of Cheshire. By becoming a "Friend" and paying a ten dollar annual membership fee, you will be supporting the activities of our seniors. In this time of government budget cuts and reduced funding from charities, the need to provide financial support from other sources becomes critical. Among the needs the "Friends" hope to address are:

  • Transportation to and from appointments, shopping, etc. over and above that funded by the Town of Cheshire.
  • Social activities such as parties, meetings, exercise sessions.

Any support which you are able to provide would be most appreciated!
