  • National Diabetes Prevention Program / Online
    6:30 PM-7:30 PM
    Oct/Thu/2021

    with Lonna Kelly

    Thursday, October 14
    6:30-7:30 pm

    This program is ongoing throughout the year. Please check our online calendar for the continuing dates. 

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

    The Pawling Library and Putnam Independent Living Services are partnering to offer you the National Diabetes Prevention Program. 

    Are you prediabetic? 

    Work with a trained lifestyle coach and a CDC approved curriculum to prevent or delay types 2 diabetes.

    Prevent Type 2 will give you a full year of support to help you to: 

    • Eat healthy
    • Add physical activity to your day
    • Manage stress
    • Stay motivated 

     

    Please join us. 

    YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE FOR LIFE

     

    Independent Living Services and the Pawling Library partner to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program Virtually. 

    Luke is one of the 84 million Americans who have been diagnosed with prediabetes, a condition where your blood sugar is high but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. He completed the Prevent Type 2 National Diabetes Prevention Program and had this to say “I’ve lost over 30 pounds.  It’s been a slow, steady change over the year I was enrolled in the Prevent T2 Program at Putnam Independent Living Services. I feel great!” 

    One in three American adults have prediabetes. You can take the CDC Risk Test at https://doihaveprediabetes.org / for a quick (2 minute) answer to what your risk is for developing the disease.  If you’re at high risk it’s a good idea to see your health care provider for a blood test.  The good news is that with an early diagnosis prediabetes can be reversed.  With December kicking off the holiday season, it’s a good time to get started.  

    By joining the National Diabetes Prevention Program you’ll learn how to make small changes, like altering your diet and exercising more which can help to reverse prediabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes.  You’ll read labels and make choices, keeping in mind that, if you plan for it, a small serving of your favorite holiday food it doesn’t have to be on the naughty list. 

    You can help to holiday proof your plan by making sure you keep moving. Walking with friends and family is a great activity after a holiday meal. Even when the weather is chilly you can dress appropriately and enjoy the crisp winter air.  

    Luke offers some advice “You have a lot on your plate this time of year so it’s also important to plan ahead and remember portion control.  Portion control was key for me.  Skip the seconds and stick to drinking water to eliminate high calorie beverages.”    

    Prevent Type 2 is a one-year program that offers a Life Style Coach, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) curriculum and the support of participants like you who are ready to get serious. The Life Style coach helps participants reach the goal of losing 7% of their body weight and increasing physical activity to 150 minutes or more every week.    

    PILS is partnering with the Pawling Library to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program free to adults in Dutchess County in January 2021. Sessions will be delivered to the group remotely and participants will need a phone, tablet or computer with internet access.  

    Luke endorses the program heartily, “My tests show that I’m no longer prediabetic and I credit the Diabetes Prevention Program for the help and support. “   

    To find out more about Prevent Type 2 contact Lonna Kelly at 845.228.7457 ext.1110 or email lkelly@putnamils.org. Additional information is available at http://www.putnamils.org/diabetes-prevention-program / Westchester Independent Living Center (WILC) and Putnam Independent Living Services (PILS) are consumer controlled nonresidential centers for independent living, which provide information and advocacy to persons with disabilities.

  • Inspiring Works by Women Writers (Book Club) / Online Program

    Tuesday, October 19
    6:30-7:30 pm

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org.

     

    The book club will be discussing Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley.

    Are you interested in reading and discussing novels, plays, and poems by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is a fun opportunity to indulge in some great works by women writers.

    We will begin each discussion with a little background history and tidbits on each female writer. I’ll ask a few questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. My hope is that together we gain a little more insight into these books (and perhaps the authors as well).

    Some of these books you may know well. Some may be books you always meant to read and never got around to! It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you are passionate about discussing books and would like to build up your repertoire of works by women, this might be the perfect place to start. To quote Mary Shelley: “The beginning is always today.”

     

    Reading List:

    September: Alice Walker “The Color Purple” 1983
    October: Mary Shelley “Frankenstein” 1818
    November: Amy Tan “The Joy Luck Club” 1989
    December: Laura Esquivel “Like Water for Chocolate” 1989
    January: Jhumpa Lahiri “The Namesake” 2003
    February: Jane Austen “Sense and Sensibility” 1811

  • HAUNTINGS OF THE HUDSON RIVER VALLEY: An Investigative Journey / Online Program
    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    Oct/Wed/2021

    with Vincent T. Dacquino

    Wednesday, October 20
    7:00-8:00 pm

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

    Do spirits still stalk the Hudson River Valley? In Hauntings of the Hudson River Valley, Vin Dacquino works determinedly to discover the true story behind three enigmatic folk legends: Sybil Ludington, Chief Daniel Nimham and George Denny. Each was the central figure in a dramatic series of events; each became enshrined in local lore for their actions; each has had his/her story obscured; and each may have left behind a spiritual residue. Follow Dacquino as he interviews local experts, explores areas where hauntings may have occurred such as Carmel’s legendary Smalley’s Inn and digs deep into historical archives to open new windows into the lives and possible afterlives of these three mysterious characters. The truth is out there, hidden in remote, tucked-away corners of the valley…are you ready to uncover it? 

    About our presenter: Vincent T. Dacquino is the author of several books for children and adults. He has made numerous appearances at schools and historical sites based on his adult biography Sybil Ludington: The Call to Arms and Hauntings of the Hudson River Valley: An Investigative Journey. Dacquino has addressed teachers and historians at annual conferences at the local, county, state and national level. He has presented at the BOCES Young Adult conferences for over thirty years and has conducted a writers’ workshop for the Mahopac Library for over twenty years. Dacquino was a teacher in Westchester County and retired in 2007 to dedicate more time to his writing and family. He resides with his wife, June, in Mahopac, New York.
