Meet Tony Chiodo

Tell us a little bit about yourself.


I was born in 1922 and raised in New Britain. I went to Trinity College in Hartford. I was drafted into the service where I became a medic and lab technician in Washington, DC. I then came home and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I decided to get my Master’s Degree in Education. I taught science, math and biology to high schoolers. Then, 12 years later, I became a guidance counselor, which I loved.


How did you get involved with the New Milford Senior Center?


I wasn’t doing much at home other than fixing the house and going out to eat. I thought to myself, “I want to do something more than this.” So, I got involved with AARP and then found out about the New Milford Senior Center. I live two miles away and I come every day to enjoy activities and events here.


What are some of your favorite activities?


I love dancing. I love music from the 40’s and the 50’s. I dance alone sometimes. At home, I pick up my broom or my cane and dance! I also love the Day Trippers. I am a member of the New Milford Senior Center, the Brookfield Senior Center and the Bethel Senior Center. I go on trips with all of them. Next week I am going to the United Nations. I go everywhere.


“Anybody who says they are bored just doesn’t get involved in everything the senior center has to offer. There are so many activities and trips going on all the time. It is a lot of fun.”


What is your advice to other seniors to “age well”?


Keep on walking. Don’t sit and vegetate. Get out there and take in the air and everything around you
