Will you help with a student project?

Are you an older adult? Do you have parents or grandparents on RI? Are you interested in volunteering with older adults?

Cornell Tech’s WiTNY Summer Guild students want to hear your ideas about how to help the Roosevelt Island Senior Center better serve older adults on RI.

Please join us for conversation, tea and cookies

Wednesday, July 26th from 10am - 12 noon

at one of these locations:
  • Roosevelt Island Senior Center (546 Main St.)
  • Gallery RIVAA (527 Main St.)

while the students are there.

Your thoughts and ideas will be most welcome!
