On Tuesday, April 14 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.

Winston Churchill is arguably the greatest leader of the 20th century, and one of the greatest democratic statesmen ever. His friend, colleague, and esteemed political foe Clement Attlee memorialized him as “the greatest Englishman of our time—I think the greatest citizen of the world of our time.” Churchill is eminently worthy of study because he is proof that a single individual can change the course of history for the better and make of life a blessed and noble thing, despite public and private trials too numerous to name.

The aging process provides us with many challenges and often we experience a variety of losses. With every day we have to make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life. Deborah A.
