 Gramatan Village makes life easier for our members by connecting them to social opportunities, helpful services and educational programs.  But who makes it possible?

Our volunteers offer rides, in home assistance and other helpful services. 
Gramatan Village is experiencing a growing demand for volunteer drivers who can offer our members rides to and from local errands and appointments. Most rides take less than hour.  No set schedule required!

Join our volunteer team and make a difference by giving back to the community!
Our members and the Bronxville Senior Citizens thoroughly enjoyed "Easy Breezy Appetizers" presented by Nancy Contessa. 
This nutrition program was made possible by the generous support of The Junior League of Bronxville. 
If you were unable to join us, click here for Nancy's recipes:

Our Program Committee is busy planning future events and activities. We know that connecting with others socially is good for one's health.  See the sidebar for details on upcoming programs.  Members are always welcome to bring a friend.
