Town of Eden Senior Citizen Services
Are you a senior in the Town of Eden? Listed below are some helpful services and groups available to all our senior citizens. We are always looking for volunteers to assist with the groups. Please contact the Town Hall at (716) 992-3408 if you would like to help out!
The Town of Eden is considering a senior center for our residents. We believe there is a strong need and would like your input as to interest, location and amenities.
