The COA pasta sauce is the best around! On Wednesday, April 12 at 5:00 p.m. enjoy a delicious pasta dinner followed by a presentation of The Haverston Mills Town Meeting at 6:15 p.m. Steve Henderson and his cast of characters will make you laugh, as those zany citizens of Haverston Mills face a very important decision and everyone has an opinion. If only the Town Moderator can keep it together. This is a thoroughly fun comedy performance that will follow our monthly Supper Club ($6). Make it a full evening, sign up for both supper and show. A social hour at 4pm will kick off this evening with a pasta dinner served at 5 and the show at 6:15 p.m. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Medfield Cultural Council, our local agency which is supported by the MA Cultural Council.

The Low Hearing support group meetings are scheduled several times a year. Susan Bernstein is available to facilitate the discussions, answer questions and provide helpful resources and information. As one of our participants has said, “I learn something new each time I come to the group.” We know there are more people with hearing issues who have never come to the group; we suggest people attend the meetings for valuable information. The next meeting is Thursday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m.
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.
