Just a reminder, when the schools are closed due to inclement weather, The Norwood Senior Center will also be closed. The Center is open, however, during school vacations. Should the Center be closed for the day, the voice mail greeting on the front desk (781-762-1201, option 5), will be modified with the change for that day. 
 If there is any doubt, feel free to call and press option 5!
