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.
WHY WATCH MOVIES
Jack Nicholsen said during one of his Oscar award ceremonies, “they entertain us, they offer hope (and) give traumas; they take us places, we’ve never been, just even for a few moments; they can take us away, when we want to get away; movies inspire us; they challenge us and despite our differences, they are (the) common link to humanity, in all of us.” Movies let us escape from our world, let us experience someone very different from ourselves. Movies can open up the world to us, experiencing new places, new emotions, new relationships, reality and make us laugh and cry. Movies are magic. Join us at the Center for our movie presentations hosted by Joan Lee at 2:00 p.m. on January 4 featuring Indignation and January 18 featuring Sully.
