Stratford Commission on Aging

The Stratford Commission on Aging is a volunteer group that studies the needs of older adults in Stratford, helps coordinate programs, and advocates for the benefit of older adults.


The Commission consists of the Mayor as ex-officio and twelve (12) members of the community, appointed by the Mayor, two of whom shall represent the private, voluntary agencies of the Town, one of whom shall represent the educational community, one of whom shall represent the clergy , and at least one of whom shall represent the age group concerned.


Meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month, at 10:00 AM in the Library Room of the Baldwin Center. The Commission usually votes to have no meetings in the summer months of July and August, but subcommittees may meet as needed.


The Commission has a Chairperson and a Vice Chairperson. There is a recording secretary, provided by the Town.

Meetings are open to the public. Anyone, including guests, can address the Commission at any time. The Commission also has bulletin board space where a list of all members and minutes of the most recent meeting can be found.

Persons wanting to bring up issues to the Commission may contact any member or see the Senior Clerk Typist or Director of
Senior Services if said person cannot attend a meeting.

Some of the recent activities of the Commission include: assisting the Director with the creation of Policy Handbook for the Baldwin Center, sponsoring several educational programs, addressing the Mayor and Town Council about how yearly registration fees are spent and advocating that the money be returned to the Baldwin Center instead of the General Fund, and assisting with membership registration.
