The New Hartford Senior Center is located on the 3rd floor of the New Hartford Town Hall, 530 Main Street in New Hartford, CT. 

New Hartford is fortunate to have a part-time Senior Director, Jean Barnicoat, who is in charge of organizing events and functions.  There are several on-going exercise classes that meet regularly and there is always room for more participants.

Please call JEAN at 860-379-3980 if you are interested in learning more about what activities the Senior Center offers.

Jean is also the "Municipal Agent for the Elderly" - if you have any questions regarding services available for the Elderly or know of someone who may need services (but they won't call for help), please call Jean and she may be able to offer some guidance.
