    This educational program is being presented by the Alzheimer’s Association.

    When someone shows signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Often, conversations with family about changing behaviors can be challenging and uncomfortable. This program offers tips on how to have honest and caring conversations to address some of the most common issues.

    Topics covered in the program include:

    *  Going to the doctor
    * Deciding when to stop driving
    * Making legal and financial plans

    Please join us for a free virtual event.

    For more information, contact the Alzheimer’s Association at 800-272-3900.

    The book club will be discussing The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri.

    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.”

    Each of us has a wealth of memories.

    The goal of this once a month program is writing your life stories.

    At every gathering each person has 10 minutes to share a story with our group members in a very supportive environment. No one’s work and writing skills are ever critiqued. Your unique style of writing is the right way to write.

    Please join us every month. Relive your memories that will one day become your memoir.

    Surprise your family who’ve wanted you to do this. The biggest surprise you’ll find is recalling the stories of your life.

    We look forward to seeing you.
