A program that matches the talents and interests of residents 55 and older with volunteer opportunities plans to expand from its Newton branch to a new MetroWest satellite office.

Service Opportunities After Reaching 55, or Soar 55, a program of the Newton Community Service Center, has secured permission to use space in Framingham's central library at 49 Lexington St.

The organization will hold an open house Jan. 20 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the library's Costin Room, with existing volunteers discussing their experiences. State Sen. Karen Spilka, D-Ashland, is scheduled to speak.

Attendees can also meet Lois Levick, the group's new Framingham coordinator.

Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by sending an e-mail to kalbert@ncscweb.org.
