Retirement reception for Jayne Colino

January 30 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

As you may have heard, after 32 years of outstanding leadership Jayne Colino has retired as Newton’s Director of Senior Services.

Jayne has been a leader in the Commonwealth among Senior Services Directors. Many Newtonians will have their own special memories of being with Jayne, whether working with her to establish the original Senior Center, standing alongside Jayne to hand out turkey dinners, sharing a heart to heart with her about the aging process, or her welcome smile and infectious laugh. We shall all miss her.

Over the years, Jayne implemented a wide array of programs offered by the Senior Center, and most recently has been a driving force in advocating and planning for a new Senior Center (NewCAL) scheduled to open 2024.

To honor Jayne, we are establishing The Jayne Colino Fund, as a part of the Senior Citizens Fund of Newton, to help support Senior Center programming. If you would like to join us in showing your gratitude towards Jayne, we welcome tax-deductible contributions to the Colino Fund. Checks should be payable to the Senior Citizens Fund of Newton, P.O. Box 600488, Newtonville, MA 02460 (please add a note on the check: “Jayne Colino Fund”) or click here to donate.
