Betty Atkins, a member of the Stitch and Chat group at the Lynnfield Senior Center, worked on quilt for about a year.
Local resident Betty Atkins spent a year working on a quilt that was recently displayed at the Essex County Needlecraft Guild's 40th anniversary exhibit earlier this week in Ipswich. The quilt has a calendar theme, with each square showing a house surrounded by seasonal images representing each months of the year. For added measure, a little cat can be found in each of the squares as well. Atkins is a member of the Senior Center's Stitch and Chat group, which meets on Thursday mornings. The items created by group members, such as baby hats, are available for purchase at the Senior Center, with proceeds going to help support its programs.

In this video, Tabatha is making pretzel chocolate fudge with caramel sauce. The pretzels are crushed and mixed with melted butter and then spread on the bottom of the (buttered) pan before the fudge is poured in. From there, the pan goes into the fridge for 90 minutes or so. Other options for the fudge include caramel sauce on top - or even in the middle between the pretzels and the chocolate. The demonstration also included tuxedo strawberries with white and regular chocolate, and oreo cupcakes. Also, check out this video from last year …

On Monday, Council on Aging board member Jack Bitner told selectmen that the Lynnfield Senior Center is offering all it currently can and is open to ideas for the future.
Monday night at the selectmen's meeting, three town entities - the Council on Aging, the Library, and the Historical Commission all made their respective budget presentations for the coming year. Looking ahead to a more long term town issue, Jack Bitner of the Council on Aging took a couple of minutes to talk about the Lynnfield Senior Center is a victim of its own success as it struggles to keep up with demand for its services and programs from an expanding elderly population. In this video, Bitner notes that the Lynnfield COA does not have any specific solutions in mind at this point but is open to suggestions from town officials.
