misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Author Talk: They Called Her Reckless, by Janet Barrett Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

When the U.S. Marine Fifth Regiment's Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition up the steep hills to the front lines, what they got was a real-life hero, Reckless, the courageous and indomitable warhorse who stood with her buddies for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits, and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.

From the moment she heard about Reckless, Janet Barrett knew she would write The Called Her Reckless -- A True Story of War, Love and One Extraordinary Horse.  Her experiences as a horsewoman gave her a aparticular appreciation of the tight bond that developed between Reckless and her fellow Marines, from which the story springs.

Come hear the author talk about the spirited horse that drew her to write this amazing tale.  Books will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the event.

Registration is required and begins on September 27th.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Alzheimer's: Know the 10 Signs - Early Detection Matters Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it's time to learn the facts.  Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.  

Attend this interactive workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer's in America.  Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others. 

Presented by Tania Paparazzo,  LMSW, Southwest Regional Director of the Alzheimer's Association, Connecticut Chapter.

Registration is required and begins on October 16th.
