On Tuesday, June 9 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.

Professor Allen C. Guelzo will lead you on “a great adventure,” a tour of Lincoln’s life, from his forebears’ arrival in America through an evaluation of how his legacy lives on for us today. You will come to know Lincoln through the eyes of those who knew, lived with, and worked with him. For Lincoln buffs and those simply wishing to know him much better, this course opens a compelling view into his thinking and career. In addition to asking what it was like to know Lincoln, Professor Guelzo explores three themes: -What ideas were at the core of his understanding of American politics? -Why did he oppose slavery, and what propelled him, in the 1850s, into the open opposition to slavery that led to his election to the presidency in 1860? -What particular gifts equipped Lincoln to lead the nation through the “fiery trial” of the Civil War? These free lectures are provided through the COA and all are welcome! Please sign up if interested in attending.
