Halloween at the Center
Would you love to learn something about the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690’s? Join us on Monday, October 31 at 12 noon for lunch followed by a unique afternoon presentation. Discover and learn what the folks of Salem, MA were wearing during this time and how their styles differed from those worn by the people of Europe and other areas. Explore with Ren Antonowicz the various aspects of dress for men and women of that time while viewing images and movie clips to supplement our discussion. Spend the afternoon in your best Halloween costume and enjoy a delicious lunch and this delightful and informative program as we get into the spirit of Halloween. Cost is $5/person.
On the second Tuesday of each month 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.
Wed., Oct. 12 – The Nice Guys with Ryan Gossling- A mismatched pair of private eyes investigate the apparent suicide of a porn star in 1970s Los Angeles.
Wed., Oct. 26 – Love and Friendship, a Jane Austen Story-Lady Susan Vernon takes up temporary residence at her in-laws’ estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, naturally.
