    Contact: Katie Petrossi   978-597-1710   kpetrossi@townsend.ma.us
   

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 Last Founding Father: James Monroe and a Nation's Call to Greatness by Harlow Giles Unger

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

The Buzz About Honey Bees

Curious about bees?

Thinking of becoming a beekeeper?

Wondering how you can help them?

Join us for an informative talk to learn all about bees and beekeeping. Learn about the honey bee lifecycle, bees as pollinators, honey production and products of the hive, what it takes to keep bees alive today, planting for bees and other ways you can help them. Plus try some raw local honey fresh from a hive!

One of My Foundationless Nucs Photo by Eric Roth

Anita Deeleyis a beekeeper and founder of Beverly Bees, a beekeeping company that rescues and relocates wild bee hives. An expert on honey bee disease and maladies, Anita has years of experience working to fix these issues for other beekeepers. She created an educational website for beekeepers called BeverlyBees.com. Anita maintains 30 hives, with her own stock of bees, she developed from her rescued feral colonies and select mite resistance genetics. Anita was recently featured in the September 2016 issue of American Beekeeping Journal and is on the Board of Directors for Massachusetts Beekeepers Association, a member of Essex County, Worcester County and Plymouth County Beekeepers Associations, Eastern Apicultural Society, American Beekeeping Federation and American Apitherapy Society. Anita and her husband, Brian capture honey bee swarms and remove live bee hives from houses and structures. These bee colonies are then safely relocated to one of
their apiaries with bees, hive and brood intact. They also provide a pesticide free wasp removal service. In addition, Beverly Bees sells raw local honey from their “wild” hives, beeswax candles, lotion and lip balms at farmer’s markets and stores across Massachusetts.

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!

Movie Matinee:  Me Before You

Summary:  Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time.

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!

John Quincy Adams by Harlow Giles Unger

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Bark: Get to Know Your Trees

 

The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. As you hone your perceptive abilities you will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel?

Ages 10+

We will be going outside for a portion of this program.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring bug repellant as needed.

 Michael will be available to sign copies of his books,

Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast and

Drawing Trees and Leaves: Observing and Sketching the Natural World.

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!

The Green Bicycle

by Haifaa al Mansour

Spunky eleven-year-old Wadjda lives in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia with her parents. She desperately wants a bicycle so that she can race her friend Abdullah, even though it is considered improper for girls to ride bikes. Wadjda earns money for her dream bike by selling homemade bracelets and mixtapes of banned music to her classmates. But after she's caught, she’s forced to turn over a new leaf (sort of), or risk expulsion from school. Still, Wadjda keeps scheming, and with the bicycle so closely in her sights, she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.  Set against the shifting social attitudes of the Middle East, The Green Bicycle explores gender roles, conformity, and the importance of family, all with wit and irresistible heart.

Join Miss Molly for this fun book club!

We will read all kinds of books;

fantasy, sci-fi, humor, realistic fiction, and historical fiction.

Typically ages 11-13 but if you're older or younger that's ok, everyone is welcome!

Admissions 101: Secrets of

College Admissions

This seminar will help families separate college admissions fact from fiction and enjoy the college

process a little more. We’ll discuss grades, test scores, activities, and everything else colleges

evaluate. Attendees will get straight answers about what college admissions committees really look

for and how they ultimately decide who gets in. And we think kids and parents will be pleasantly

surprised to learn that kids don’t have to be trilingual, opera-singing rocket scientists to get into

college today.

Presented by college counseling provider Collegewise.
