DOVER COMMUNITY SURVEY

The Dover Council on Aging is looking to the future to strengthen its ties with the entire Dover Community through programs, services, and advocacy.   The purpose of this project is to survey key constituents of the Dover community to better understand the needs and interests of Dover’s seniors as well as perceptions of Dover’s seniors held by various constituents.

The Dover Community Survey may be found at the following link:   www.surveymonkey.com/r/DOVERCOA.  Copies are also available at the library or the Council on Aging office in the Caryl Community Center.

Thank you for your participation.

FOCUS ON THE FUTURE

Welcome to The Friends of the Dover Council on Aging, the organization that raises money to help support the services and programs of the Dover COA.

This is where you will be able to find out about the events and activities we are planning, as well as to find recaps of our most recent programs.

Each year we present two or three large fund-raisers, in addition to several smaller events such as lectures, concerts, or receptions. We have a town-wide membership drive every November. Please check this website often for the most recent information about our activities.

We invite everyone to join us in our work by becoming a member, making a donation, or by volunteering to help with one of our events. Seniors, their family members, friends, and neighbors are all encouraged to join; you don't have to live in Dover, you don't have to be a senior. You just have to care about our community.

SEVENTH ANNUAL HARVEST BRUNCH

was held at the American Legion Hall

Please see our Events Page for Sponsors for this Event and Appreciate Them with Your Business

The Friends of the Dover Council on Aging presented their Seventh Annual October Harvest Brunch at Dover’s American Legion on Sunday, October 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  It was our honor and pleasure to have our event at Dover’s American Legion George B. Preston Post 209 Hall.  The American Legion’s membership contributes time, materials, and money in service of several charitable efforts in Dover.

Jack Quinlan was our featured pianist.  Everyone who attended last year’s brunch raved about the music, the food and the terrific raffle items.  This is an event for all no matter their age. 

This event raised funds for the Council on Aging to provide more diverse classes, day and overnight trips and even office furniture.

 

"UP IN SMOKE” 2017 BBQ AT THE CARYL held on

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14 was a HUGE SUCCESS - THANK YOU

Entertainment was provided  by Dover’s own folk, country and bluegrass band, the Centre Streeters.  The band was founded by a longtime member Bill Foehl in 1978.  After his life was cut short, they continued on adding two members and are proud to say they are going on 35 years of great performances and enjoyment.  The band serves up a banquet of bluegrass, folk and country music and love doing it.  Tight harmonies, solid packing and wide variety of material make this band one of New England’s favorites.
