NORTH READING — The Friends of the North Reading Council on Aging will host an open house reception Monday, January 3, from 1-3 p.m., at the Edith O’Leary Senior Center (Third Meeting House on the Common), 157 Park St., for retiring Director of Elder Services Mary Prenney.

“Mary has touched the lives of many in town, not only seniors and their families. Everyone is invited to come by and wish Mary well on the next adventure in her life journey,” commented Angela Mauceri of the Friends.

As required in all town buildings, masks must be worn by everyone entering the building.
