Any resident in this age category, who has not already confirmed a contact phone number with the Town, can call the senior Center at 401-789-0268.  Staff will be answering calls as quickly as possible and the public is asked for their patience.  Callers may leave a voice message with their name, address, date of birth and phone number; and this information will be confirmed with a return call.
