Five days a week, Roberson walks from her home in the city to the Nashua Senior Activity Center where she eats lunch, visits the library, relaxes in the coffee lounge and shops at the thrift store.
Aside from all of the activities and classes, Roberson said the best part of the senior center is having a place to socialize with people her age, who share the same interests and concerns.
Currently, there are about 2,000 members from the Greater Nashua area, a number that organizers are hoping will expand in the coming years.
The center's newest fundraising effort is taking place at Uno Chicago Grill, 304 Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua. The fundraiser is ongoing until the end of the year, and enables patrons to donate 20 percent of their Uno's purchase to the Nashua Senior Activity Center. Customers must have a voucher, which is available at www.nashuaseniorcenter.org.
