Phone Issues
Please be aware that we are currently having phone issues. We are working to get the problem resolved but, in the meantime, please be patient and continue trying as the issue seems to be intermittent. Thank you!

AARP Tax-Aide Program
AARP trained volunteers will be available for free and confidential tax preparation at four sites in our area: Clinton Town Hall (Mondays), Killingworth Congregational Church (Tuesdays), Westbrook Library (Wednesdays), and here at the Estuary on Fridays. New This Year - Appointments for the AARP Tax-Aide program will be available for scheduling starting on Friday, January 20. There are two ways to make an appointment:
1) Online at https://www.aarp.org/money/taxes/aarp_taxaide/locations.html and search for your local sites
OR
2) by calling 860-579-3192. (Please note that this is not the Estuary's phone number.) This number will be staffed on Mondays from 11am-2pm, Thursdays from 2-5pm, and Fridays from 9am-noon and from 2-5pm.

Please note that Tax-Aide volunteers cannot prepare returns for taxpayers who changed their state of primary residence during 2022 or for taxpayers who run a business with inventory, depreciation, or a loss. After you make an appointment and before that date, you need to pick up an envelope with the intake form, which is to be completed at home, prior to coming for your appointment. You can get your envelope at the site where your appointment is, except that in Killingworth, the envelopes will be at the front desk of the Killingworth Library, not the Congregational Church.

Winter Closing Policy
Please click HERE to view our Snow Closing Policy. We no longer follow the Old Saybrook school district. Closings will be posted on the your local news outlets, on our facebook page, and on our phone system (after 8am that day).

Help Us Plan for the Future

Your opinion matters to the future of The Estuary.  As we begin planning our next Strategic Plan, we have compiled a list of questions that will help us better determine the direction the senior center should take over the next 3 years.  We hope you will help us by filling out this form and returning it to us by January 30th.  This is your senior center and it is important to us that you have a voice in its future and its place in the community.  You can download and complete the fillable form (click here), save it, and email it to us at development@yourestuary.org.
