50th Anniversary Silent Auction

Check back often -- new items are being added daily! Online bidding will end at 3PM on April 28th when this online auction transitions to a live event. The live portion of the auction will conclude at 9PM, after which winners will be announced and notified.

We are celebrating Senior Solutions’ golden anniversary with a gala dinner, dance, balloon roulette, and silent auction on April 28, 2023, at the American Legion Post 67 in Chester, Vermont.

As the Council of Aging for Southeastern Vermont, Senior Solutions helps older Vermonters, and younger ones with disabilities, age in the place of their choice by providing them with a wide variety of supports and programs, creating opportunities for meaningful relationships and active engagement in their communities. For many disabled and older adults living in our area, our services make the difference between living safe, enjoyable, healthy lives and experiencing homelessness, hunger, and isolation.

We are certain this auction, and the gala on April 28th, will raise awareness of our programs and secure new resources for the work we do.

About Senior Solutions

Our History
Established in 1973, our organization was first incorporated in 1985 as Senior Services of Southeastern Vermont. We received our 501(c)(3) exempt status in 1986. In 1991, we became the Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont, Inc. In July 2011, to reflect an expanding array of services, we changed our name to Senior Solutions. One of five Area Agencies on Aging, non-governmental entities in Vermont, we receive funding from individuals, foundations, the state of Vermont, and the federal government. Through the federal Older Americans Act, we provide services to residents 60 years and older.

Our Mission
To promote the wellbeing and dignity of older adults.

Our Values
We believe every person should be able to age in the place of their choice with the support they need and the opportunity for meaningful relationships and active engagement in their community. As our staff has grown, under the guidance of dedicated board members, we have worked hard to embody our founding values:

We honor and respect the life experience and autonomy of Vermont’s older adults.

We recognize the essential role of families, caregivers, and communities in the lives of older adults.

We foster a work environment where creativity, open-mindedness and resourcefulness are expected; our employees are compassionate, respectful and responsive to the needs and wishes of our clients.
We are committed to maintaining strong community partnerships to assure our clients’ varied needs are met and to collectively strengthen the infrastructure of support for older adults.

We embrace our role as advocates for older adults, including speaking out about current issues, identifying unmet needs, proposing solutions and believing that our collective voices can bring about change.
