"UP IN SMOKE” 2016 BBQ AT THE CARYL on

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 2016 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.

FIFTH ANNUAL OCTOBER JAZZ BRUNCH WAS HELD in OCTOBER, 2015

The Friends of the Dover Council on Aging presented their Fifth Annual October Jazz Brunch at Dover’s American Legion on Sunday, October 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  It is our honor and pleasure to have our event at Dover’s American Legion George B. Preston Post 209.  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 raises funds for the Council on Aging to provide more diverse classes, day trips, and even office furniture. 

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.
