Never Too Late

The Never Too Late Group is one of the country’s oldest, continuously running groups for seniors. For over 60 years,
it has provided a setting for seniors to gather together and enjoy with their friends a wide variety of unique programs that are entertaining and culturally enriching.

Programs are held year-round in the Commonwealth Salon on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. A typical month consists of classic and contemporary films, live musical performances, and author or lecture talks about various topics, especially on Boston or Massachusetts history.
