Moment-um is an active senior adult program that meets regularly on Mondays. This program is open to residents of Gilford and the surrounding communities.
PLEASE RSVP to the Gilford Parks and Recreation Department at least by the Thursday prior to each event (unless otherwise specified) by calling the office at 527-4722.
**While it is important that everyone call to RSVP for each program, it is equally important that everyone call to cancel if you know you will be unable to make it. We plan and shop for all of our programs, and when individuals just fail to show up, it costs our Department money and impacts our budget. So we ask that everyone please try to cooperate when it comes to your RSVP and/or your cancellation. THANK YOU!
