The town plans to survey its senior citizens for ideas on how to use an $825,000 bequest made by a long time resident who passed away two years ago.
Mary Esther Tolles, known by many as “Billie,” died at age 94 after many years of activism on behalf of the town’s seniors. A room for seniors at the town's Community Center already bears her name.
An attorney for Tolles' estate, Gail Kingsley, told the town's selectmen this week that the bequest is conditional – it must be used to provide a facility for seniors, including offices, class and meeting rooms, recreational space, and dining facilities. Selectman Harriet Warshaw said the survey was suggested by members of a study committee formed help determine how best to meet the conditions of Tolles' bequest.
