  • EVENTS

  • Low Vision Group Meeting

  • On Tuesday, July 9 and August 11 at 10:00am, join the Low Vision Group. Monthly meetings at the Center, facilitated by Social Worker, Cheryl Lavallee, gives people the opportunity to talk, share concerns and ideas as they navigate their way through life with low vision. Any loss that we experience is difficult to deal with, however, having the support of a group, educating oneself with information, empowers people to live a quality life with the challenges they face. If you or someone you know is experiencing any loss of vision, plan on attending the monthly meeting.

  • Video Class Thursdays at 1:30pm through June 11

  • The Great Ideas of Philosophy taught by Professor Daniel N. Robinson will be shown beginning July 16. Humanity left childhood and entered the troubled but productive world when it started to criticize its own certainties and weigh the worthiness of its most secure beliefs. Thus began that “Long Debate” on the nature of truth, the scale of real values, the life one should aspire to live, the character of justice, the sources of law, the terms of civic and political life—the good, the better, the best. In these lectures you will:

    1. explore three basic philosophical questions,
    2. understand why we should strive to achieve moral excellence and
    3. explore the four assessments of what constitutes the good life.
    Get out of the heat this summer and enjoy this lecture series!
