Yum, It’s The Depot Diner

On Wednesday, January 12, the Manchester Council on Aging is offering a trip to the Depot Diner in Beverly for a delicious meal.  The restaurant serves breakfast all day with delicious offerings of pancakes, french toast, omelets and more.  Its lunch offering is just as wonderful, with choices from salads, wraps, burgers and more.  All reasonably priced.  And we’ve been told liver and onions will be on the menu.  This trip is limited to 12 seniors.  The van will start picking up seniors around 11 a.m.  Return is expected around 1 p.m.  For further information or to reserve your seat, please call the COA.


To The Malls

On Friday, January 14, the COA van is going to the Peabody and Danvers malls.  Seniors can choose between the North Shore Mall or Liberty Tree Mall.  The van will start picking up seniors around 10 a.m.  Call the COA office for information or to reserve your spot.


A Mystery To Us All

On Wednesday, January 19, it’s the monthly COA ride to a mystery destination.  Wow.  The van driver heads for an undisclosed establishment somewhere on the North Shore.  It could be ice cream, pastries, sandwiches or all of the above and only the van driver knows!  A little hint will be given, so all can be prepared!   Pick-up begins at 12 p.m., with a return by 2 p.m.  Don’t call the COA office for more info (remember, it’s a mystery) but please contact the office to reserve a spot. 

Off To Trader Joe’s, And Walmart

King’s, In Lynnfield
