This month we are reading Pax by Sara Pennypacker

About the book:

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.

Have you ever had an operation for which you were prescribed pain medication, such as a hip or knee replacement?  Do you suffer from chronic pain, such as arthritis or osteoporosis?  Chances are you have been prescribed an opioid, even if you were unaware (e.g., Percocet, Vicodin, OxyContin, Fentanyl).  Whether you actively take an opioid or have had a prescription for one in the past, there is important information about which seniors need to be aware.  With the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the midst of an unprecedented public health epidemic, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has developed a safety program for senior citizens to raise awareness about the opioid crisis, specifically how it directly impacts them.  District Attorney Ryan will discuss the far-reaching effects of this problem as well as offer tips on how to manage prescription medication using the File of Life program.  In addition, she will talk about ways to safeguard medication from theft; how to properly dispose of unused or expired medication; how to identify signs of drug addiction in a loved one, and get them help.  Complimentary File of Life refrigerator magnets and personal wallet cards will be distributed to seniors who attend.  

No charge for this event, but please call the Senior Center at 978-597-1710 to reserve your spot.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!
