For over a half a century, Andover DCS has provided the people of Andover, as well as the surrounding communities, with a multitude of programs, events, trips and classes, for youth and adults alike. On an annual basis, DCS serves over 10,000 people, offers hundreds of services, and employs hundreds of Andover residents, as well as maintains and offers outdoor recreational facilities, such as Recreation Park and Pomps Pond.
DCS is committed to making sure that everyone is able to enjoy wonderful offerings, while providing a safe, supportive and equitable environment to all. With that in mind, it is DCS’ goal to create a “Friends of DCS” group in order to better serve the population of Andover as a whole; whether the goal is to support scholarships, so every Andover child can have the opportunity to participate in programs, or to provide transportation services for those that are not able to get to and from our programs.
DCS hopes that anyone interested in this effort will attend the Friends of DCS Informational Meeting on Thursday, November 5th to discuss how this support system could best benefit the community. The meeting will take place at the Town Offices Building, at 36 Bartlet Street, in the second floor conference room, from 7:00-8:30 PM, and will include a presentation from the DCS staff, followed by a question and answer brainstorming session.
