The school is spacious with central air conditioning and more available parking, a gym that will accommodate two pickleball courts, a large media center with plenty of room for cards, movies and speakers, a fully equipped computer lab, an art room with a kiln, outdoor spaces, and several other classrooms we can utilize. Please note, any classes after June 21st will be at Beverly. Support Services will also be moving to Beverly. Nothing will change including Meals on Wheels, home medical equipment loans, and transportation, as well as the caring customer service you have come to rely on. We are excited to take advantage of our temporary home and offer much of our same programming,while introducing new offerings that will uniquely fit into Beverly. Think of it as summering in a new vacation home!

    Summer Walking Group

    One of the “cool” things about the summer move to Beverly School (besides the central air conditioning!) is the close proximity to Beverly Park. There is a trail from the school parking lot that directly accesses the park — so we’ll meet at Beverly School and then walk to Beverly Park. In case of inclement weather, group does not plan to walk. Please contact Lynn Doelle at 248-835-9085 or or Susan Randall at 248-563-7112 or for additional information
