Eating Together



The Winchester Seniors Association is a not-for-profit corporation that does not charge annual dues or membership fees. Instead we rely on the generosity of citizens from Winchester and surrounding communities to run our programs and activities.

Volunteer Opportunities – Your Help is Needed!

The Jenks Center thrives on the generosity of others to enable it to function and volunteers are an essential lynchpin of our operation. We are in dire need of volunteers to assist with driving seniors to medical appointments and other appointments for ½-day a month or more. Contact Sue Clark at 781-721-7136.

Interested in Advertising in the Winchester Jenks Newsletter?

With the marketing power of reaching almost 5,000 residents in the Town of Winchester please consider advertising in the Jenks Newsletter. Rather than make a year-long commitment, the Newsletter committee is accepting advertisements to run ad hoc for a special rate of $100 per issue. Contact Phillip Beltz at 781-721-7136.

Can It Be Tax Time Again?

You bet, particularly if you are at the Jenks. We need to prepare for February 1, 2018 when our seniors have all the necessary forms for the 2017 tax year. Once again we will need new tax preparers this upcoming year. Our tax program is sponsored by AARP and its trained tax preparers. If you prepare your own tax returns, you have the experience we need for you to become tax preparers. You can learn whatever you don’t know at our tax preparers’ classes which will start the second week in January.

We prepare federal and state income tax returns for low – and middle – income tax payers. We give special attention to those 60 years and older. The returns are prepared and e-filed by computer and free of charge. In the past 30 years we have prepared yearly over 200 returns for seniors at no cost to them. The program cannot continue without your help. Some tax preparers are returning, but additional people are needed to carry the load. We only do simple returns, and they can be done at your convenience. Please consider volunteering.

For more information, call 781-721-7136 (the Jenks Center) and leave your name and phone number. Anne Hoffman and/or Harry Rothmann will call you back.
