The Senior Services Staff
The Conz Street Chronicle
The Conz Street Chronicle is a monthly publication of Northampton Senior Services. It is funded by donations, advertisers, and the City of Northampton. The Conz Street Chronicle staff is made up of Senior Center volunteers and also receives assistance from many others. Contributors include staff from Senior Services and from other city departments and organizations.
All work is published at the editor’s discretion. Any opinions, or information about businesses, candidates or services do not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the Conz Street Chronicle, The City of Northampton, the Northampton Senior Services or any of its employees. The Conz Street Chronicle assumes no liability for any inaccuracies, omissions or misunderstandings. The Conz Street Chronicle and Northampton Senior Services and their employees are not responsible for any claim, loss or damage resulting from Conz Street Chronicle use. The Conz Street Chronicle does not endorse any products or services provided by public or private organizations.
Distribution of the Conz Street Chronicle alternates monthly between two formats. Every other month, the paper is mailed directly to subscribers as a stand-alone, tabloid-style publication. On the in-between months, the Chronicle is printed as an insert in the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
If you wish to receive stand-alone editions of The Conz Street Chronicle by mail, please call 587-1231 to be added to the mailing list. If you would like to receive these publications by email, please email email@example.com or call 587-1231. The paper cannot be distributed both ways to the same individual; please choose one of the two options. For Northampton, Florence, and Leeds, residents over the age of 60, the Chronicle is mailed free-of-charge. For non-residents or for individuals aged 55-59, there is an $18 annual fee which must be paid in person at the Senior Center or by mailed check (mail to: 67 Conz St., Northampton, MA 01060). Paperless email subscription is free-of-charge regardless of location or age.
If you currently receive the Conz Street Chronicle by mail and wish to switch your subscription to a paperless, electronic subscription, please email us or call 587-1231.
Welcome to the Northampton Senior Fitness Center!
Thank you for your interest in the Northampton Senior Fitness Center. The Fitness Center operates from 8:00 am – 4:45 pm Monday through Friday.

All new members are required to have an orientation to the Fitness Center on the 23 pieces of strength training and cardio equipment to ensure the safety of the participant and the care of the equipment.

Why volunteer at the senior center?
Volunteers are the heart and soul of everything we do at the Northampton Senior Center. From our reception desk to coffee shop, photography class instructors to exercise instructors and bingo callers, volunteers keep the center running.
Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being. Compared with their peers, senior center participants have higher levels of health, social interaction, and life satisfaction. (ncoa.org)
In 2016 over 100 volunteers contributed 11,815.45 hours to the center. Are you interested in sharing your time and talent as a part of our volunteer team and enriching the lives of area seniors? Check out the available opportunities, volunteer application and volunteer manual below. For further questions please contact Marie Westburg, Director, at 413-587-1231 or firstname.lastname@example.org
